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:
This pouch is a classic feature in the configuration of any vest. Helikon has added features that make it even more interesting such as the inside Velcro 1 to add additional pouches with which to better arrange the equipment (panels for shotgun cartridges, magazine double pouches...). And cord fastenings 2 on the zippers so we can open it and close it even while wearing gloves.
Inside we will also find two rubber straps 3 with which to secure large objects such as grenades, water bottles or small BB bags. Or a string ring 4 to hold objects like the GPS and prevent them from falling or losing them and help us find them sooner.
Thanks to its small size, it has a capacity for 1.5 litres, it is very versatile and can be placed both in our first line as main pouch and in the chest or back of the vest, as if it were a small combat backpack.
Available Colours: Black, Olive Green, PL Woodland, Coyote, Adaptive Green, Multicam, Shadow Grey, A-TACS FG Camo, PenCott GreenZone, PenCott BadLands, A-TACS iX Camo, Kryptek Mandrake, Kryptek Highlander.
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".
