Or drawbacks like becoming tired quicker or being more vunerable to group attacks. The possibilities to this in combat and having a unique character are to much to list.

Also, item manipulation is being done a little bit already, if you didn't know. You can use your repair skill to construct new things using old gagdets, and a few items can't be bought or find, but only made. ( I think)
