Default Best bandolier for SKS?

Anyone know of or have used a good bandolier for an SKS? Saw one on amazon I liked for maybe twenty dollars. Seemed like it would work for what I need it to do..hold stripper clips and better organize them and ammo. Maybe bring it to the range.

"Best" is highly subjective.

Why not tell us precisely what you need it to do, so we may better provide guidance?

Pretty close to what is posted above ^^
Something I can wear, and easily store/access stripper clips. Mainly range use. Kinda like my AR, I use a FLC and have mag pouches. Same concept, just for an SKS with clips

I have a pleather and canvas NVA one, with leather straps I picked up a few years back. Once I got the leather straps softened up it was useful. I like that it has snaps for the pocket closures, instead of the little wooden buttons.

I like the Chinese ones too, and they can serve double duty for AR mags as well, if you extend the closure loop with an elastic band.

Probably the chinese rig, and the price makes it even better.

This is the only photo I could find online. At the time I bough the one I have, it was billed as "original NVA", this one is identical, but labeled Chinese, so who knows.

Love the canvas! Out of stock though. Saw one in amazon less than 20, free shipping but had the little wood nubs. Wonder how well they hold or if it will come undone easily if I'm moving with it

Yeah, I knew they were out of stock, but its the only reference I could find.

The standard Chinese ones work well too though, and will stay securely closed with the wood(or sometimes plastic) buttons. I have used them quite a bit. They are a bargain for what they are.

I have also threaded an elastic ponytail band on each loop, and put two 30 rd. AR mags in each pouch. A lot of weight, but they handled it (longer than I could) Most I have encountered are well made.

A chunk of bamboo with some rice crammed in it is all you need to accompany your sks. Stay low and aim carefully.

Prolly just go ahead and get the wood holders off of amazon. Hold 20 clips, so 200 seems like a nice amount of fire power

I like the Russian Pebble grain pouches, they hold 40 rds on strippers(Box of M67Yugo) Got them at a surplus store in Beaverton for like 2 bucks each. They have belt loops, will fit the commie belts, E German.
,And Soviet Union. I have one on my SKS sling, makes it a grab and go setup. 40 rounder in the AK, same capacity for nighttime pests. I keep 500 or so loaded strippers in ammo can for re supply. Grab and go box has loaded mags plus strippers loaded, some boxed M67 Yugo on strippers, a box each of the pistol ammo. Speed strips, and 2 speedloaders for the snub, For the Tokarev, 1 mag inserted, one spare loaded , 50 loose rounds in a nylon zip case. Looks like a CD case, handy for car to house and back , the neighbors do not need to know my biz. Have a NICE Basketweave hip holster for the snub, it slips a leather paddle inside the waistband, has 2 snap straps to hold it to my belt, and a snap leather strap for weapon retention. Rides real good, high and tight to my torso. Like the leather cop gear for carry. Found this one in a turn in bin full of slings, scabbards,holsters,and all types of gunleather. The Gun Room, Portland Oregon. Guy has Everything you could want. Always a nice bunch of $ & W Revolvers to drool over. Has some Commie surplus Pistols from time to time. Fukin Parrot loose in the store, watch your hat.
