Try this idea: Prioritize. Now understand that I am not trying to be a wise guy here.

When I was with Special Forces many years ago, we had so much gear that we often left behind, at the rear, most of it when we went out on a mission. We also learned to prioritize which items that we did and did not need. By prioritizing our needs, we spread the weight or mass of the gear out over the entire team and yet we did not sacrifice effectiveness. Let's say you have 9 people. It you try to load your 9 people down with all of them having binoculars, rifle scopes and night vision gear you're increasing weight loads on them without needing to do so. What we did was look at the tasks individuals would probably be doing. Your people who are scout/snipers actually do need binoculars and rifle scopes. Your medics don't. Your mechanics don't need rifle scopes and binoculars but, at night, they might be useful using night vision scopes mounted on top of their rifles. So if you think through the different tasks your people will be performing and what they really need, you'll find out that there is no need to do a lot of duplication or overlapping of resources. You want people to be effective, share the load and the gear which means spreading out all the specialty gear.
