- It is constructed of a rubber/neoprene-compound bladder, dip molded from a cast of his hand, the interior of which has an inner core of nylon tricot. There is a convoluted section for ease of movement incorporated into the wrist with anodized aluminum connectors for attachment to the spacesuit. A finger-less glove restraint, designed to help maintain the glove's shape, is attached to the bladder at the wrist and enclosed the entire hand excluding the fingers and thumb.
