this was the 1 I was confusing for my friends, it would seem my friends 1 is just velcrow but his batteries are for his fans in his helmet which he converted himself, he mentioned wheb new he had trouble it sticking at first as the strength wasn't enoigh but he can't remeber if he changed the Velcro or glued it on, was a while ago

I could see there two clips for stronger attachment, so it is still not enough to hold weights? Maybe my colleague's proposal that making a helmet cover with pouch could be a solution

his has no clips but that other 1 does, the 2nd 1 is far to small for alot of the power bank market, yes indeed both options could be explored then if people have or the need for different colours or even ghilli suit covers types then everyone can be addressed, or even people who just want to replace pouch so their suit up doesn't change

:oops:Just now our colleague put forward a proposal, making a helmet cover with bottom pouch that fits gopro battery.
What do you guys think about it?:unsure:
That is not a bad idea actually. They could use it for counterweight of nods or the battery and have it built in. Leave it empty if need be. I would check and find out what the usual counter weight sizes are that are used and what size the battery is. I would suggest an internal velcro strap system to hold either in place so it is stable inside the pouch.

The cover idea is a really good idea ,could even make attachment points for the action camera power cable along the side
Will definitely include!(y)

I think something like this is what you need, it have a large compartment for any powerbank, but also an insert where you can fir standard size batteries:
It can be attached on your helmet velcro or on the helmet cover velcro.. and when uou dont need it just take it off View attachment 3565 View attachment 3566
Wow, this is almost what we want to do! Thanks Sir!

Please contact me if you want some advice in making the product, as an active airsofter maybe i could help you develop this product better with some ideas.. But likr this one in the photo its really great for sure 😊
Will do Sergeant! We will send pics here.
Now the proposal we have for this codesign idea is making a helmet cover with integrated power bank pouch on it back. The helmet cover will have space, maybe a guiding space for wire. Inside the pouch we are now figuring how to make it adjustable so that it could fit more types of power banks and making no flopping problem.😊

yeah agreed, the integrated wire housing would help as it would save running the wire under the cover or actaully in through the inside off he helmet it's self, Speaking with friends n fellow air softers on site yesterday, The Velcro is a great idea but suggest maybe a strap with little connectors to attach to the side of the helmet for the extra security when running around n going through bushes , which bring me to another subject I have to start :)
