I grabbed up a small bandoleer and a gas mask pouch for about five bucks at our local surplus store. Gonna dye 'em black to fit better with the gear.

Nice find, and for five bucks too.
Do you have something specific for them planned or was this an impulse buy?

Nice dude!  Yeah, surplus stores (and thrift stores) are great for finding stuff you might have never thought of adding to your suit.  Just gotta have a keen eye for finding geeky uses for everyday items.

The ammo pouches were somewhat of an impulse, but you can never have enough ammo pouches. :D The gas mask pouch is going to be a hip bag I'll hold water bottles or other props in. I have huge cargo pockets on my pants, but it's uncomfortable when they're too full.
