Detail of the right glove. Note the pressure gauge just above the wrist disconnect ring.

When most people think of an Apollo space suit, they probably think of the lunar EVA gloves (which are worn over the pressure gloves); however, those gloves are worn only during EVA.

The pressure gloves pictured here are worn during launch, landing, and whenever it was necessary to wear the space suit.
