The David Clark G5C lightweight space suit was developed for long duration Project Gemini missions. It was designed to be easily removed during flight and to provide greater comfort than the typical space suits then in use. Astronauts Frank Borman and James A. Lovell used suits of this type during their 14-day Gemini VII mission in December 1965. This suit was tailored for astronaut Michael Collins for ground training purposes.

Transferred from 6750th Aerospace Medical Research Lab Support Group.
