Christian Bale (Rebecca Murray int): "you feel like you’re scuba diving or something, and it feels kind of claustrophobic"
As for the batsuit itself: "You can’t raise your arms up really high. You also need help around the toilet." (webwombat.com.au int). he also mentioned getting headaches in the suit and TDK suit being even heavier even if more mobile
The cowl in TDK was not designed that way and my point is that TDK design is more practical then Keaton's Batman. If Batman were real it would have to be even more practical.
