The TMG glove features a yellow urethane-coated fabric palm, gray silicon fingertips, cover flaps to back of hand and wrist, and three Velcro strips. In very good to fine condition, with expected wear from use. Consignor notes that this glove may have been flown and then downgraded for training in the Neutral Buoyancy Lab. The TMG is the outermost layer of the space suit and provides insulation, radiation shielding, and protection from micrometeorites that could otherwise puncture the suit. A desirable example of the first glove designed for the Space Shuttle program.
