It's mostly a design thing, I'd say. That and the magical thing known as hammerspace! To put it simply, hammerspace is something seen in fiction where characters do the same as Link does-pull objects and equipment out of thin air. Though Link is capable of carrying all of his belongings:
Besides, I think would be quite a tough job for the designers to design and put all those items on Link's model or sprite, or whatever. Having hammerspace just makes things easier, I guess.
This works in most cases, but all those masks in MM, they would cover him, he'd be a walking pile of masks! XD I love that picture, though. I saw a fanart of that concept with TMC, it was cool too. And yeah, I never did understand the iron boots and how they are only heavy on your feet.
