DescriptionRussian Zvezda Spacesuit with Inner Pressure Layer, Integrated Boots, and Attached Half Helmet and Gloves Beige nylon canvas suit with green and gray webbed belt lashings, and green, gray, and blue trusses around the arms and legs. The tan-colored inner pressure layer (bladder) is made of rubberized kapron, and originally was sealed with a rubber strip. The outer layer is fastened on the front with nylon laces and metal eyelets. The visor is polycarbonate and is attached to an aluminum rim which is hinged near the ears. The hood portion folds when the visor is opened. The boots are integrated with the suit. The gloves, which attach with couplings at the wrists, are made of nylon and black leather. There are two life-support hoses, a 1 cm for oxygen and a 4 cm for air, attached on the front, along the left side of the waist.
A 3.25" x 4.5" rectangular patch including the flag of the U.S.S.R. and the initials "CCCP" is sewn on the upper left arm, just below the shoulder. A 2.75" round patch embroidered with the crest of the U.S.S.R. is sewn on the upper right arm, just below the shoulder. These two patches were worn by all cosmonauts until 1992. A 2.25" x 3" patch including the insignia of the Russian manufacturer, Zvezda, is sewn on the front, below the right shoulder.
Located near Moscow, Zvezda became involved in the Russian space program during the 1950s, and developed the first full-pressure suits worn by the cosmonauts. This suit, of the type made for Orbital Space Station programs, is designed for use inside a spacecraft and protects the cosmonaut from potential depressurization. It is likely that the suit was made prior to 1982, when zippers began to be used on the outer canvas layer of Russian spacesuits. Complete spacesuits from the Russian space program are rarely offered on the U.S. market.
