First up, stacking gear to a machete sheath is nothing new. You have all this free real estate on something you’re carrying around with you and it can be put to good use. This is just our version of it.
The simple answers are:
The sheath (and gear stacked to it) sits higher and is is less likely to get hung up on vines and bushes
We are already use to carrying our equipment from shoulder style bag. The Shoulder Carry Sheath with gear stacked to it is just a logical progression. It’s essentially a mash up of a sheath and bag in one convenient unit
The sheath is very easy sling behind, to the side or to the front. This gives you easy access to equipment as well as being able to sling it out of the way when needed.
The tunnel in the MFMP makes it super easy to solidly attach a fixed lanyard. You can secure vital equipment to this lanyard.
