A 9 foot webbing loop has a lot of versatility in both utility and life rescue applications. One of the many uses for a Webbing Loop is to carry equipment. By tying an open end “Girth” or “Choker” Hitch you can quickly attach to the valve assembly of an scba air cylinder – This can free up your hands allowing you to carry multiple cylinders or additional equipment.
