The vendors outside each DZ main entrance occasionally sell DZ exclusive gear such as the Hollow Man mask, Claws Out holster and System Corruption gear set. However, you need DZ resources to buy them.
Currently (June 2021), there are two ways to get DZ resources:
1. Deconstruct contaminated gear within the DZ and extract the resulting resources. After a successful extraction, the resources will be in your mailbox. However, this puts you at risk of encountering a rogue agent before completing an extraction, and losing whatever you picked up.
2. Farm boxes in the DZ. Any DZ resources you find are immediately added to your resources, and cannot be lost if you die.
Boxes containing DZ resources look like thinner versions of the boxes that contain electronics/ceramics:
The subreddit has maps showing the locations of these boxes:
The best time to farm is just after a DZ has switched from invaded to non-invaded. All boxes refresh when this happens, so you have a better chance of getting resources. Note that resource boxes in an invaded DZ cannot be farmed as they are all open.
In terms of effort, it's possible to farm 30 resources within half an hour. For reference, the most expensive item @ L40 costs 152 DZ resources.
Boxes go on cool-down before they can be farmed again. This lasts for about an hour.

Thanks. I’ve been farming these loot boxes every time I venture into the DZ (which hasn’t been that often yet) and I’ve almost hit enough to buy something. It’s very little effort and a great excuse to explore the DZ. I’ve only been in DZ south but it’s a very cool map.
