Helikon Tex Possum Waist Pack – Compact Equipment Holder

Helikon Tex Possum Waist Pack – Compact Equipment Holder

Helikon Tex Possum waistpack – a versitile and compact equipment holder suitable for EDC in both urban and rural situations.

The Helikon Tex Possum waistpack was a gift to my son, he’d been badgering us for something to protect his phone when he was out and about and playing football etc, a waistpack was his choice of bag. Kids get to an certain age when they need to carry all sorts of stuff on them and a compact waistpack is a good piece of kit for that.

Helikon Tex is a brand that caught my eye some time ago, mainly through their line up of bags and more recently their clothing. They have gained a good reputation quality and also have their Direct Action brand which gears towards more military tactical style.

External Features

The Possum comes in various colours but you can never go wrong with black, it’s a smart little pack with a velcro ID panel on the front for your patches or simply leave it blank and you have the Helikon Tex logo. There is the main zip to open the pack from the top and there is also zip at the rear for a back pocket which will be hidden when the pack is worn.

The adjustable strap means that the Possum can be worn around the waist or, if you like to keep things even safer it can also be slung across the chest.

Inside the Waistpack

In a pack this size you’re not going to get a whole load of organisation options but that’s not what the Possum is about. What it does it does well and for a pack so small you have four internal pockets plus some eleasticated webbing in there for good measure. You have 1.5ltr of space making this tactical waist pack just right for smaller items and EDC.

Everyday Use

I am sitting with this pack in front of me and it’s been a good few months since my son started using it – it’s held up very well considering the amount of abuse it takes, you know, street football, camping and all the stuff that teenage lads get up to with their mates. The YKK zippers help in this respect, cheaper brands don’t last as it’s the zippers that tend to go first then the stitching.

Helikon Tex Possum waistpack – worth the money

This Helikon Tex Possum waist pack shows signs of wear but it also looks like it will go the distance too, for a shade under €30,00 euros you can’t really go wrong.
