German Fallschirmjager Equipment help

Afternoon ladies and gents, so due to my never ending love of everything airborne I scrounged up some old parts I had lying around to kit bash a german fallschirmjager and I had everything I needed except a bandolier, now I've never been much of a fan of the German paratrooper bamdoliers I always thought they looked kind of silly and would much rather give my fallschirmjager some leather K98 pouches, but was wondering if this would be historically accurate seeing as I've never seen any photos of German paratroopers armed with K98s that didn't have bandoliers, so I'm just wondering if it would be historically accurate to give my para some leather K98 pouches instead of a bandolier? Thanks in advance!

As mentioned by the others, it depends on the time you're trying to portray. You could use black K98 pouches for a late war trooper, and brown pouches maybe on Mid war troops. The bandolier would be good for and early war or "textbook" representation.
Any of the 3 could work and be historically accurate in that case. Good luck with it!
