Rebel troopers, also known as Rebel fleet troopers or Rebel soldiers, were the front-line soldiers of the Rebel Alliance in their war against the Galactic Empire. Initially formed from loosely connected resistance cells, the leadership of Mon Mothma saw them become an impressively armed and trained galaxy-spanning infantry. (Source Wookieepedia)
Black boots with rounded toe and max height of mid calf.
Screen accurate ANH RFT helmet.

Below this large pocket is another pocket with a flap that is at the same height as the right side lower open pocket flap.
