Sorry we move the thread to Co-Design sector cuz I am personally very interested in this as there are many players using gopro now! This could be a very functional product for them.

in a way I guess your right, I did firstly think about sometbing to stick on the inside between the padding but due to my large head 90% of that I had to remove so there is no room,

firstly it would have to be Velcro dude, unless you can.up with a cover that allowed a Molle type pouch to attach on, and it doesn't have to heavy material ether or it would apply to much counter weight and pull the helmet backwards to much

I found Gun Gamer has reviewed a similar item:
But cant find it available online now, one more thing I'm not very sure is, as I'm not a gopro player, what kind of batteries most people use? Cuz this will affect the size of the pouch

What do you guys think about it?:unsure:

the idea is the same, but with this 1 you are limited to size, not everyone has the same external power bank,

sounds good, it doesnt have to be go pro only though, it's more for the external power supply, go pro is just the preferred camera , my back up camera isn't go pro,
I have 2 kinds of power banks, I have a a wallet sized 1 then i have a cylinder 1 which is about the same size as half a cucumber

Pic 2 is much more popular now, as its sales number shows. (y)We will make a sample first and post it here when it is done.
If any more idea or function that is interesting, please tell us!

np! Thank you so much. What I could think of is using elastic or cords for adjustment for different type of power banks so far.

yeah being able to adjust would help with different weights too, I have seen only ever seen 1 with a elastic band which connected into the rail system on the side of the helmet, was something very similar to the brackets u can get for you goggles so they connect to your helmet

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

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)
