I'm considering building a Marine Corps collection around my USMC marked field pack. It's dated BOYT 44 and is in good condition really if a little faded. I've had it since I was a kid. Because it's a lttle 'used' in appearence I'm aiming to buy gear that is also a little 'used' looking rather than un-issued stuff. Could anyone point me in the right direction regarding suspenders and belts etc.
I was looking at these on e-bay, what do people think? Would they work with the pack?

If not, any suggestions?
p.s I would have uploaded a picture of the field pack but my Mrs has took the camera to work!
