As the title suggests, how do you guys go about keeping the bandolier in place? I have a fantastic one made by the amazing Mel, but it tends to slide off the shoulder when bending down. Any ideas?

Everyone, including the original suits, use a string or collar around the neck and secured to the bandolier.

In the original trilogy he just had a simple leather string. I use a dog collar now.

Yes. Just a large dog collar and I use wire attached to the bandolier. I also ware a stormtrooper neck seal to help hide my neck from view and also helps against the Akers strap rubbing and causing a rash.

Cheers

A dog collar? Just when my wife thought this couldn't get weirder!

I used a similar method to the dog collar for my OT Chewie but I’m trying something new for my TFA Chewie. I’ve fitted popper studs to the shoulder of the suit and will fit the other halves under the ammo box on the bandolier once it’s finished

I have a dog collar with a leather strap to my bando.

I've always hated when I squat or kneel that my bando slips around because of the weight of the satchel. I notice Peter does it frequently in the OT (especially when fixing the Falcon in ESB).

Anyone used a hip strap to keep the other end in place?

No, but I've thought about it, Matt. You tried the hip strap?

I’ve just tried a new method over the weekend on my original bandolier. I fitted a couple of popper studs to some webbing and this is secured to the underside of my top. The mating half is then attached to the bandolier strap. On my hip I have the same thing. Two poppers attached to the legs via some webbing and the matching half’s fixed to the back of the pouch. It worked a treat and also cut down on the amount hair mating as the pouch no longer swings back and forward as much.
