On the set of Camp Curie.  In Fountain Valley's Mile-Square Park. (add)...  At Camp Curie, the trainees wore variations of everything they were issued.  The sweatshirts were to give the illusion of a cooler climate.  It was actually 110-degrees in the shade!  The "macho" guys would not take water often enough. Then they realized it was "less macho" to pass out on set.  We had a "chill tent" with tornado blowers...  The jackets are made from codura nylon, and don't "breathe".  The armor is EST-40... rubber.

The scene at "Tango Urilla" was filmed in Hell's Half Acre... a desert.  For safety (OSHA... right), they did not wear their jackets or gorgets.  This was worked into the script to give the illusion that it was warmer there than at Planet-P, etc.  And of course, to show off their tattoos!
