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!

I'm guessing as they jumped without weapons they landed and got their gear from canisters. So threw bandoliers over their shoulders, but if they've been on the ground a while I assume they could use the Kar 98 pouches. Fallschirmjä - Basic Fallschirmjäger Gear

See plenty of illustrations but few photos.
