The Halcyon strap is easy enough to DIY if you have the time/inclination:
As an aside, if you have the choice, chose an aluminum pony. The steel ones are very negative and much harder to use.

As for sling systems for carrying off board gas, there are plenty to choose from Halcyon (which has been mentioned), Dive Rite, Oxycheq, Golem, Hollis, etc. In addition to the standard sling, I suggest also adding side mount bungee (used by cave divers using sidemount rigs instead of back mounted doubles) to hold the valve end of the tank up by your ribs, rather than have it drag in the dirt when you are in the water. There is plenty of discussions on this topic over at rebreatherworld.com.

If you use a small bailout, you need to plan your diving as if you are diving with the equivalent nitrox in open circuit, in order to be able to go directly to surface on all time in the case of bailout.
Just my 2 cents.

If I can't source the right size bailout cylinder, I'll usually just slap the rigging on a 80cf ally and deal with that. If doing shallow non-deco stuff, I'll just rely on my onboard dil as bailout (yes, I'm aware many say this is inadequate so please don't tell me how foolish I am).
