There is a key principle that governs operator's choices: "less is more". This is something that can be applied to many situations, for example, due to the nature of current conflicts, "using less camouflage is more effective to go unnoticed" or "carrying less unnecessary weight provides more manoeuvrability and effectiveness when it’s time for action." It is not a written law, rather the voice of experience passed down from one operator to another which sometimes reaches the ears of people like Helikon-Tex, who takes advantage of it to create this:
Helikon-Tex Bushcraft Satchel
A sling bag designed to carry everything you need to survive on a day trip. Although the material may not seem very strong, it is 100% Cordura 500D which guarantees its resistance. We can fully load its 17 litres capacity without fear that it might break. It can also be folded into a very small size.
And if we load the inside, to the two inner elastic pockets for bottles; the mesh pocket with zipper for small things; and even the zippered pocket on the front for everything we need to have on hand. We could still get some more space by placing extra pouches in the molle of the sides and securing them with the compression straps to prevent them from moving. But are you sure you need to carry so many things?
These molle panels are divided into two, one of which is closed at the bottom while the other is not, and is intended to function as covers for knifes or tactical axes.
Available Colours: Black, Olive Green, Coyote, Adaptive Green, Shadow Grey.
This gear allows us to increase the loading possibilities of our equipment, but remember that does not mean that we have to fill everything to the max. We will make a better use of these products by carrying only what we need, so we can take advantage of other features such as the comfort, elasticity or breathability of these items designed to make operators' work easier. Remember, "less is more".
