Some additional features and add-on modules were added for civilian Special Ops needs. Comes with front attachment points which when connected with a locking carabiner(1397) can be used for extraction or rappel applications. (Used with Extraction/Personal Retention Lanyard item # 566).

The loops below the waist belt are to attach a gear bag during rappelling, hoisting, or short-haul operations.
