From @UniversoDCnauta on twitter. Warner Bros. sent him a gauntlet.
There's some more detailed shots of the outfits in this clip!I’d like to replicate the drifter outfit. Has anybody found a similar hoodie? Looks like it has a sherpa/teddy layer inside but i cant something similar.
Sam also commented more on the skullcap. The skullcap goes around the eyes as well, and may have a split in the back to allow some flex. The skullcap is glued in some places to the inside of the cowl. I wonder if the giveaway cowls were also done this way.
Finally a view of the skullcap!A few rough shots from the special features:

Edit: the grapple launcher mechanism from the Iceberg Lounge was practical, but seems to stick out a bit:

Edit 2: skull cap:

BTW, kinda suspect that we’ve only seen one grapple launcher mechanism on one arm and a different one on the other. Makes you wonder if they actually did have a different mechanism for each arm for whatever reason.
I haven’t actually seen any official confirmation here, but I’m pretty sure at least that the clip pieces on the shoulder pads here connect to the cape so that it doesn’t fall over his shoulders and sits on the suit correctly, right? View attachment 1567142 View attachment 1567143

Robert mentions that the first time the grapple was used was the only time it ever worked perfectly. Perhaps they made the simpler Taxi Driver style so they could keep filming without issues.

On the "hero version", the gun seems to actually fold below the reel to wrap around the grapple in the retracted position, thus sitting more out of the way. Also, the "hero version" uses a shorter track since the mechanism swings out at the front.

Looking back at the image from the Iceberg Lounge, I believe that the rail actually goes back farther than the gauntlet, but was filmed to hide this. The gun is rigidly attached to the sliding bar, so when it starts in the retracted position, it must be sticking far down his arm.
Yeah he manually retracts the grapple most of the timeHere's something a little interesting that I noticed when watching the movie a couple of weeks ago, but didn't have a good image of until Cristian Diaz posted this nice screenshot from the DC FanDome 2021 behind-the-scenes footage on the Facebook group a little while ago:

For the scene where he takes his cowl off, they made a special version the suit with extra detail under the gauntlets. As some in the group pointed out, this is probably supposed to be part of the grapple launcher mechanism, with the lines being for gas or something. I highly doubt that's normally under the suit, because there's just supposed to be some hook-and-loop fasteners there. However, there is this small detail on the vambrace that looks like it could be the (kinda odd) Picatinny rail showing through, especially on the first (inaccurate) Prime 1 Studio statue:

And I think this is concept art of the detail:

A few other random things I noticed when rewatching The Batman a couple of times:
- When he's putting on the wingsuit, the buckles that connect the two sides kinda looked like they were based on Fidlock V-Buckles a little.
- When he gets up after using the parachute, the straps on his back are gone, so those must be for the cape.
- He manually retracts the grapple launcher a second time after saving Kenzie.
- Some have said that the holster is empty for most of the scenes where Robert Pattinson is in the suit, but he at least had it for the scene on top of Gotham Square Garden. It's clearly visible when he's looking up at the helicopter.
