Does Bane suffer from Asthma?
Oh well, it is just nit picking but still something odd. I think it would have been nice to see his mask integrated with his kevlar vest or something.
So like Batman he has his own costume and 'armor' but Bane can't take his off it keeps him alive. (and also some tanks on his body perhaps)
As for the design in general. I think what they did worked. Bane stands out amongst all the villains we have seen in comic book movies. He is a visual marker for the path of the Nolan's Batman series.
Aesthetically, meh can leave much to be desired but he is bout spreadin that fear.
