Lt. Michael Murphy's (Taylor Kitsch) Tactical Rig, Backpack and Accessories from Peter Berg's 2013 film "Lone Survivor." Based on true events for which Murphy, a U.S. Navy SEAL, was awarded the Medal of Honor; the USS Michael Murphy (DDG-112) was subsequently named after him. Murphy can be seen wearing the tactical rig and backpack throughout the film, until the scene in which he contacts the Navy SEAL base to inform them of their position. Both items in this set have been labeled for use by Murphy, with the tactical rig marked "MURPHY 2" and "MURPHY" written on a backpack strap.
To guarantee the accuracy of the film, SEAL Team 10 Operation Red Wings survivor Marcus Luttrell was brought in to supervise the use and display of all tactical gear. Manufactured by Kelty, Murphy's backpack is the MAP 3500 model and is made for military and tactical purposes. This Military Assault Pack (MAP) is made from nylon and includes numerous adjustable straps and compartments. The backpack has been production distressed with dirt and grime, and includes a few straps that have been wrapped in tan colored tape, giving the piece a weathered appearance. Inside the backpack compartments are a number of accessories, including a taped-up water bottle, camouflage blanket, and sniper netting.
Worn around Murphy's chest is a tactical vest made by Pantac USA. The rig features numerous compartments for ammunition and accessories, and like the backpack, has been distressed by production with dirt and stage blood stains. This rig has several accessories fixed in place, including a tactical radio, smoke grenade, and a satellite phone. These accessories have been constructed from foam rubber, allowing them to be lightweight. This rig also includes an ammo magazine that has been cast from dense rubber.
This lot features wear from production distressing and stunt work, however the set remains in excellent condition. Acquired from The Prop Store of London and Los Angeles in June 2014, with accompanying certificate of authenticity.
I have donated these items to the Navy Seal Museum in Fort Pierce, Florida. Please look for them on display!
