The sleeves on a woman's uniform are made smaller than on the men's, and the full-size patches don't sit right on them (they don't even fit on the sleeve in the smaller sizes!), so they make the patches smaller, too.
    In my experience what Marsmouse said is one hundred percent correct.

    I find it funny that people focus on Vala's patches while completely glossing over her cutesy jacket. lol

    Are the patches smaller for Vala than Sam? I seem to remember Amanda mentioning that they were tiny to fit on Claudia's arms.

    Thanks for the good times!

    I haven't read this whole thread so I don't know if this was brought up but... in the AF, there are different size patches. Men's and women's. The women's patches are smaller in size. A female can either wear the male or female size patch. It's up to them and depends normally on their body size as which to wear.

    Have you not noticed her cutesly little field jacket? I love that everyone's ignoring that and focusing on the patch size. lol

    Yes, but the patches are smaller, because the jacket is smaller. This isn't hard to figure out.
