Glove at 3+psi

Quick update today: the left glove at just a hair over 3psi. I found and solved the one remaining mystery leak; just screwed a helmet connection cable a bit tighter. Still a leak at the helmet exhaust valve, which I need to remove and replace with my own. You can see how much the glove 'balloons' at this pressure -- which is basically the pressure I need to survive at 50k feet -- but I can reduce this a bit with some creative seaming to the glove cover. Progress! Today I also sewed socks onto the liner suit, a small item but one I've been meaning to do for a long time.
