    Quick cheap Ammo Belt

    So I was walking through the dollar store the other day and I happen to spot some fake leather brown cellphone belt holders. While not perfect, these are reasonably close to what I was looking for in my ammo belt. So I grabbed the whole rack of them and headed to the army navy store to find a belt. But much to my disappointment they didn't carry any dark brown leather belts. But I was able to find a brown harness strap which is the same material as a seat belt which while not accurate was perfect for my budget. So the pouches ran me about $10 and the belt was $5 which I might find a better belt later but works for now. Hope this helps you guys who are on a budget like me.

    I admittedly am a newb to all this, but that looks pretty good by my standards. *awaits ridicule* Do you have any details on how I could acquire some of these? Manufacturer, distributor (there are a ton of dollar stores), etc. Thanks!

    The package it came in is probably not much help. The front of it simply says "cell phone case" and while the back does have a distributor which is greenbrier international inc. , which appears to only be a wholesale provider and not have a front to their business to buy from. I'll ask the owner about where she gets them from the next time I go there, but in the mean time my recommendation is to keep an eye out for them when you go to bargain basement places like flea markets or any place with the words dollar, discount, or savings in their name. They'll be in the tech/phone section. Here's the pics of the packaging. There's a lot of cheap cell phone case websites out there I'm sure one can find something very similar.

    I decided to check out my local Dollar Tree, and sure enough, I found a ton of these. They're a little darker than I had imagined, so I may try to fix them up with some leather paint, but overall, you made a great find!
