Drag Handles are important! BlackHawk started providing drag handles on all of our vests and packs many years ago. We found that the original military L.B.E. needed improvement with added ruggedness, a drag handle and sternum strap, and the BlackHawk wrap around belt loop system with H-Harness. We got rid of metal attachment clips to prevent chafing and "hot spot" pressure points when in the prone position. Made of 1000 denier NyTaneon. Dose not include belt, pouch and canteens.
