So if I'm understanding the responses correctly, once the Hero is not wearing the Badlands Gear Coat, they do not have access to the sidebag items on it (as the sidebag items cannot be removed except to use).
Am I right however that the Hero can at the start of their activation put on the Badlands Coat and use whatever sidebag items they need to then swap
out again for another coat at the start of the Hero's next activation?
Yes. You can do this. The trade-off is that you have to lug around 2 extra Anvil's worth of coat for the rest of the Mission.
