I have recently purchased the Nerf Bandolier Kit. It is a recently released ammo storage system, for Nerf Wars or generally mucking around with Nerf guns. I is a simple idea, with a strap with metal snap swivels at each end, and a long elastic strap with sewn in sections. It can hold 12 darts, 6 clips and something else in between the clips.
Out of the box, it comes with the bandolier itself , 24 streamline darts and 2 clips (enough to fill both clips and the darts slots on the bandolier. I find it hold clips well, but you may lose a dart when you rip it out. The pockets in between the clips hold film canister Nerf grenades (http://nerfstuffisawesome.blogspot.com/2010/08/nerf-film-canister-grenade.html) well.
It's also worth mentioning that the bandolier can work as a strap for blasters like the Vulcan, Deploy and others.
Finally I think that is a great buy and for $20 in Australia, I would have bought it just for the clips and ammo.

To anyone who may check back here regularly, I'm sorry I haven't posted much lately! I have been thinking about making some easy homemade Nerf war accessories. One that came to mind instantly was a spring powered grenade. And sure enough, a quick Google search revealed a host of options. Since I have a spare film canister lying around, I found some nice ideas on Youtube. One I found particularly good was by FrappicinoINC. He has made a whole launcher for them! I haven't found a spring good enough for the job yet, but my Dad will get me a spring powered toilet roll holder for me to shatter the spring out of. A friend has given my some darts his Recon CS-6 shredded, so I cut them down and they work great! I then got an old piece of membership card and cut a circle 35mm in diameter ( the width of the film canister). All I need is a spring. A bonus is the middle straps on the Bandolier (between the clips) hold one each. This is going to be a blast to use. Stay tuned for a proper look when I make it!

I got the brand new Nerf Raider CS-35 CLEAR EDITION! I got it out of layby yesterday- and I must say it's awesome! Okay, lets start from the beginning. I am desperately after the Recon CS-6 when I suddenly relise after searching everywhere for it, that because at that time it was 'toy sale season' and everyone would be sold out! I really wanted a new blaster, so I looked at my local K-Mart store and I found one on these. Since I didn't have $60 spare lying around, I laybyed it and a few weeks later I got it out!
I was immensely excited about this! A Clear Series blaster- mine!! It works great, but the only concern I have is the Slamfire jams easy and if you don't realise and keep pumping, it will shred a dart every time you pump. I have already destroyed 6 darts this way!
Stay tuned for more updates and a proper review...
UPDATE- A lot more than 6 darts have been shredded by now!
