I just got one of those salamander throwbags you wear around your waist that has a throw bag on one side and a tether on the other side. On the throw bag side, the rope goes through this little loop sewn onto the bag. My question is, what is the purpose of this loop? It seems to make it really hard to repack, so would it be a bad idea to remove the rope from the loop?
Any feed back or tips on how to repack it without removing the rope would be greatly appreciated!
