Looks sweet. I'll bet most Army/Navy surplus shops would have something similar

These guys have tons of bags

and they have a lot of other cool stuff. Used to go to this store a lot when I was a kid, then they expanded to online only. Still good stuff.

I think that you might want to augment the original buckles with those fast plastic ones as shown on the commercial bag. Those military buckles would get old very fast.
