G-4-C gloves were designed for heavy duty service. The outer glove was made of white HT-Nomex and provided protection for the inner glove. The inner glove was molded forming a gas-tight bladder and cemented to a molded flange, with both inner and outer sections being fastened to the wrist disconnect by means of a clamping ring. 1.15 volt fingertip lights with independently powered 30 hr, 1.5 volt battery pack were attached. The lights were operated by moving a toggle switch on each hand.

NASA transferred this glove to the Museum in 1973.
