Does anyone know a manufacturer for 28mm campaign "extras" like pouches, sacks, bottles etc that can be used to accessorize miniatures? I am sure on one of my many figure searches I stumbled across a maker that did these but can't remember who. Appreciate any direction.

Although not a direct answer to your question, why not make them yourself?
Buy kneadatite (yellow/blue plumbers putty) off Amazon.
Plonk a blob of the putty on a shiny piece of elastic card.
Shove it around with a cocktail stick and modelling knife. when hardened just pop them off the plastic card and adhere to the little chaps. To make bottle just let the putty almost harden and roll it.

Just an idea.

The Bolt Action equipment frames from Warlord are a good source of pouches and stuff. Plus WW2 guns, of course :)

They can be ordered separately and aren't too pricey, especially if you can use the other bits. The British one has some revolvers (holstered and otherwise) that are useable for 19thC, plus SMLE rifles can be converted to Lee-Metford/MLE ones for late 19thC use.

The German frame rifles would also pass muster as civilian bolt action guns in the late Victorian era. The Mauser action was widely copied.

I'd echo the tip about getting some putty and learning to roll your own, too. An excellent way to learn basic sculpting, and something that can be picked up without much skill required.
