These Extra-Vehicular (EV) gloves were made for astronaut Joseph Kerwin for use during training sessions during the Apollo era. The gloves were constructed of an outer shell of Chromel-R fabric with thermal insulation to provide protection while handling extremely hot or cold objects. The blue fingertips were made of silicone rubber to provide sensitivity. They were attached to the spacesuit using the same mechanism as the intra-vehicular gloves.
