Way back in my Paratrooper days, we used those to fab mounts for all sorts of gear.....if you gonna be using rope (instead of flat web material), there is a "domed" version also available............handy as a pocket on a shirt.
Here is a link to one of the many supply houses that carry that type stuff........ http://www.strapworks.com/Footman_Loops ... gPEALw_wcB
2007 GearUp (Arctic #1)
130/45 jets, KTM rock solid mirrors, Delaware Dave's outstanding trunk lock, Mr. Cob's most excellent skid plate, Cycra Probend smashproof hand guards, Duro strong like bull 307's, RotoPax damn near bulletproof fuel cans, MKIII all but water proof air box and Dimples super duper magnetic drain plugs all around...oh yeah, and a manual fuel petcock.
.........if you see something that needs doing, just do it........
