1. A glove comprising a layer of elastomeric material having an initial configuration adapted to receive a hand and characterized by being substantially impermeable to water vapor and liquid water, having a tensile strength of at least about 1500 psi as measured according to ASTM D-412 on a sample of the elastomeric material having a thickness from about 4.0 to about 4.5 mils, and having elastic properties such that when stretched from the initial configuration to fit about the hand, the elastomeric material conforms to the configuration of the hand initially exerting a predetermined pressure on the hand and thereafter relaxing to exert on the hand a reduced pressure which is substantially less than about 80% of the predetermined pressure.
