Surplus Ammo Belts as Ditch Kits

Hello all,

My search skills indicate this has been touched upon but I didn't see what I was looking for - but that doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

I have never used one - but I can see the appeal of them for all types of outdoor activities. I have all manner of fanny packs, but my compartmentalization side likes the idea of those individual pockets as a ditch kit.

I do not recall seeing these used in the field by canoeists and I was curious as to thoughts on that. No doubt, depending on your seat style it could be uncomfortable, but for no-seat applications they seem like they would do the trick.

Thoughts on the application? Or is this just another rationalization to buy more gear?
