This is really about a coat, but the coat is only necessary for
wielding such sleeves as the ones eventually to be described. First

like an ordinary coat, but when it is time the wearer, whose hands
are inside the integral gloves, grasps an opposing sleeve and pulls.

elastic tension. Once completed the sleeve will appear rigid and
hollow. By aiming the sleeve and turning one's gloved fist to
disengage the ratchet, all the power of Power Sleeve is unsleeved.
