SEAL Team - Behind the kit - 2nd Line Gear - Season 3





Evolution is inevitable. A constantly changing dynamic environment causes those within it to adapt and rise upwards, or struggle and slowly sink. SEAL Team Season 3 continues with the evolution of the individual operators, the evolution of Bravo and an ever changing set of mission requirements testing individuals and the team. Armed with a huge budget for purchasing gear to suit the modern warfighter, Bravo would in real life be spending money on tried and tested equipment something they tease at in the show. The latest equipment and manufacturers tried out in the training environments and put through their paces would eventually lead onto use on operations and SEAL Team manages to capture this with a new plate carrier being worn by a member of Bravo here, the use of a new type of retention system there etc. It's subtle and helps to again draw the viewer into a military world.

Having completed a breakdown of 2nd Line Gear for Season 1 and Season 2, it was inevitable that I tackle Season 3 which again provides some new sets of equipment to search for and bring to your screen. Through the searching and linking in this blog I had to delve through a lot of material. As previously mentioned, rather than adding every single episode and breaking it down, my preference was to provide you the reader with a section per operator per set of 2nd Line Gear. For example if 2B9 Ray PERRY wears a Crye AVS and throughout the seasons changes his pouches configuration, I have noted all of them under one section for ease.

The kit and equipment predominantly hails from real steel manufacturers throughout Season 3 and the research has taken me a long time, but has been eased by the fact that a lot of kit has bled over from Season 2. This is though yet another blog that doesn't exist anywhere else! The blog gives you the details and links to recreate a 2nd Line Gear setup based upon one or a mix of Bravos' operators. As with all of my other blogs, an inordinate amount of HD images, low res images, trailers, videos and episodes were pored over, watched and re-watched to bring you this full write up. It's tough going but the immensely positive feedback received has made it worth the hunt!


 

Equipment manufacturers


Bravo as mentioned generally use well known real steel manufacturers across all of their kit. In relation to 2nd Line Gear plate carriers, rigs, pouches and ancillaries, the following are the main manufacturers of note;



 


Jason HAYES (1B9)


HAYES deploys into each operational environment with a specific set of 2nd Line Gear that's' either suited for one environment or is adaptable. Season 3 brings with it some changes and evolution in HAYES' character and equipment.



Loadout 1 - Low Profile


HAYES begins Season 3 in Low Profile gear, utilising the favoured Spiritus Systems Micro Rig in Wolf Grey. Designed for lightweight use and ideal for vehicle mounted operations, it provides HAYES with essential items with minimum fuss.

Loadout 2 - Black kit (Maritime / Land)


HAYES dons Black kit twice during Season 3 and on both occasions wears the same gear. Rolling over from Season 2 are the Mayflower Plate Carriers and Multicam Black clothing and accessories. The kit is used for both Maritime and Land based operations.

Loadout 3 - Training Environment


Whilst training for the hostage rescue mission in their secure training facility, HAYES wears the traditional S&S Precision Plateframe designed for use in a Maritime environment due to it being lightweight and quick to drain.

Brock REYNOLDS (5B9)


REYNOLDS as the K9 handler has a specific role within the team, primarily to act as handler and secondly to act as another operator who remains adaptable throughout the season. A heavy influence for REYNOLDS is Crye Precision kit and equipment (due to his friendship with Caleb Crye - owner of Crye Precision).



Loadout 1 - Low Profile


REYNOLDS' low profile gear doesn't differ from the rest of Bravo when operating in a low profile environment in and around vehicles and buildings.

In a break away from the rest of Bravo, REYNOLDS continues to wear the SPC when conducting the training and maritime hostage rescue mission.

Scott CARTER 'Full Metal' (1A9) - Standard Operating Environment


CARTER appears in a number of episodes of Season 3, becoming a more integral part of the team whilst firing out one liners and laying down fire. He maintains his 1A9 patch and is seen as an addition to Bravo.


Full Metal is seen using the LBT-6094 plate carrier and is likely done so through personal preference and previous experience of the carrier. Much like the Crye Precision AVS, it's adaptability and real estate is taken advantage of.



Loadout 1 - Low Profile


Although in the background, CARTER utilises the low profile gear as with the rest of Bravo.

Thoughts and opinion


If you haven't checked it out already, have a read of two of my previous blogs; SEAL Team - Behind the kit - 2nd Line Gear - Season 2 and SEAL Team - Behind the kit - 2nd Line Gear - Season 1. These blogs as the names suggest go into intricate detail regarding the 2nd Line Gear used by Bravo in Seasons 1 and 2. The equipment used across the seasons does evolve, however a large volume of the 2nd Line Gear stays the same either being used in full (ie PERRYs AVS setup) or used in various configurations.


If you're interested in replicating a screen accurate version of one of the teams 2nd Line Gear setups, this blog is a fantastic place to start however, you'll need to dive deep into your pocket as real steel manufacturers charge a lot due to the process, materials and quality of the product.

With the 2nd Line Gear for Season 3 now complete, there'll be a break before heading back with a Season 4 breakdown shortly...

Final Note


I am not paid for my blogs by the manufacturers or companies that I purchase my items from. I am not offered freebies to promote a product. These blogs are purely written from my own experience in truth to help advise and inform others who may wish to purchase the items or understand more about them. If I am sent a freebie to review this will be stated at the beginning to make you aware.
