Overview of an Inkling's gear.

Gear is the collective name for a set of headgear, shoes, clothes, and weapon in Splatoon. Gear can be bought from the shops in Booyah Base (Shrimp Kicks, Cooler Heads, Jelly Fresh, and Ammo Knights.) They can also be ordered from the Inklings walking around Inkopolis Plaza.
