Binia has made a number of these as well. I have 2 that were essentially the prototypes. They have the back for all permenant equipment and to balance weight for the front filled with pockets of consumables and stuff you have to show. I would recommend having more empty spots for breathability as they get hot.

A fishing vest works well if your willing to memorize what's in each pocket. I found it to be very good for grind but less useful for the dungeon. This year I just used a shoulder bag and a binder

It would also be fun if you were role-playing a Wizard wearing a Robe of Useful (or Useless) Items....

Greetings,
Like others, I use the coin wallets for consumables, and then I keep my blades/bow (Ranger) in my buttoned pocket.

For binders, I found a neat one this year in the vendor hall.
(I also run Clout events at Origins, so this was a no-brainer.)

Binder has a zipper so it closes securely, and has pockets for chips.

There was GenCon dealer that must have found boxes of them, as he had more then 30 and was selling them $9 each, and 3 for $18.

I can provide more details if anyone has questions-

Chris

The neatest thing I have seen was a "shield" that someone used this year. It was a home made cardboard shield. Their tokens had the velcro "disks" on one side and the other was on the shield. They had their whole build set and all consumables already laid out.

It sounds like they had a shield for each class as they normally run as a full party. There were only 4 running when I saw them. The shields were about the size of a legal sheet of paper, just a little wider.

Looked really handy.

That could be fun - or you could just get a giant hat and toss in all your tokens. Whatever you pull out you use

I was considering something like this, but don't know if it'd just get in the way and/or be too difficult to find tokens:

I contacted Binia, so may go that route.

Thanks!!! :)

I did see at least one person with a belt mounted pouch filled with the token tubes. Might have been PStyle.

I used the bag of holding this year. I was able to keep a bider with tokens as well as a few extras. Anything I needed immediate access too I used a magnetic armband. Worked out well, much more light weight and not as restrictive as a backpack.

One did show up in my searches, and I have to admit I was tempted. :)

What you use to carry the tokens depends heavily on what tokens you use. I have to outfit a 10-person group as do you, Meghan. I have 4 Dansco binders and a small backpack. I print a party card and show the gear to the Coach. If there's a question in the dungeon, I'll whip out a binder and show that room DM.

Players carry their own weapons (and in the case of casters their own gear tokens). Weapons go in a pocket. If you lose them, you replace them.

I carry a two-pack WWI belt ammo pouch with heals in one pack and mundane gear in the other. We're not Nightmare, so I can't even remember the last time I had to open one of the pouches.

In general, if you're able to tell the room DM your actual gear by name, they don't even need to see it.

Ammo pouches, like you showed, and SMALL backpacks are great.

We played nightmare on two puzzle runs just so I could burn through a bunch of potions we had built up over the years. I know I dropped about 500 HP over two rooms. Next year we will work on the scrolls.
