- U.S. Naval Aviator Flying Suit, Anti-G, Type Z-2. Size 40; MIL-S-5085. The g-suit, actually anti-g suit, is a flight suit worn by aviators who are subject to high levels of acceleration force. It is designed to prevent a black-out and loss of consciousness caused by the blood pooling in the lower part of the body when under acceleration, thus depriving the brain of blood. The g-suit is a special garment with tightly-fitting trousers that are fitted with inflatable bladders which, when pressurized through a g-sensitive valve in the aircraft, press firmly on the abdomen and legs, thus restricting the draining of blood away from the brain during periods of high acceleration.
- Pair of lace up leather boots.
