often worn to protect skin and prevent fatalities.
Removing these gloves is tricky because a tight seal is formed
around the finger that prevents the ingress of air needed to fill
the vacuum formed between finger tip and glove tip.
in a prolonged and unnecessary fight with ambient air
The solution I propose is to glue 2mm thick flexible but un-
crushable tubes up the sides of each finger, where one end

Now, removal is easy, the tubes allow air ingress to the finger

turning inside out, negating the need for reversion by inflation
and the associated build up of condensation.
An alternative would be a vacuum box into which gloved hands
can be placed where air pressure would not cause this effect.
But this would require a sophisticated wrist air lock of some
