Star Army Gloves

The uniforms of the Star Army of Yamatai include various types of gloves.

In the Star Army, gloves are available for human-type hands and for traditional Nekovalkyrja hands that have 3 fingers and a thumb. Variants for other species may be available through special orders from Star Army Logistics.

Gloves, Type 32

Originally called the service dress gloves, these thin gloves are worn with the Star Army Duty Uniform, Type 35 and Star Army Coat, Type 32. They can also be used with the Star Army Exercise Uniform, Type 38 when the hoodie is worn. The gloves are primarily for decoration and light protection from the elements. Water vapor can escape them but water cannot soak into them, which makes them good for rain and keeps hands from becoming sweaty.

They are available in cadet blue since YE 32 and in white since YE 37 (for the class A Formal configuration of the type 35 duty uniform).

Utility Gloves, Type 22

Star Army Utility gloves are jet black and can be worn with most Star Army uniforms including the class B everyday configuration of the Type 35 Duty Uniform, the Star Army Coverall, Type 36, and Star Army Duty Uniform, Type 30C. The rule of thumb is they can be worn with any uniform that includes matching boots.

They are made of a non-flammable material that is resistant to heat, electricity, and acids. There is a wool insert (liner) that can be used for cold weather. The inserts are 75% wool and 25% nylon and are Star Army Cadet Blue or olive drab in color.

Type 22 gloves are the original type of gloves used by the Star Army. In the early days, they were issued with matching boots as the “TA-19 Boots and Gloves set” manufactured by WickedArms Industries as part of the Star Army Female Bodysuit, Type 22.

Prior to stricter color standardization in YE 35, they were previously made in white, gray, dark gray, and brown. The older gloves be found at a Star Army Surplus Store.

Work Gloves, Type 31

Part of the Star Army Working Uniform, Type 31, the work gloves were first issued in YE 31 and are made of suede leather in cadet blue.

Other Gloves

Star Army soldiers may also be seen using other specialized glove types as part of an ensemble:
