The Seed Satchel is the bag that holds the ammunition for the Slingshot. Upgrading the satchel allows you to hold more Deku Seeds in one bag.

You can also equip multiple Seed Satchels in the Adventure Pouch to increase its capacity without upgrading it. However, since the pouch has limited slots, we recommend upgrading the satchels to increase its maximum capacity.
