I'm all for it but we all know it's coming. They always had the option in their past games, no reason to think this will be any different.
Edit note: Also a hood on/off toggle would be nice too for robes and/or cloaks.
This reminds me how much I dislike how most games of this type picture mantles and cloaks.

I hope Larian will nail the aesthetic this time.
