Good day to you all. Could someone please assist with identifying what accoutrement this side strap may go to? At first I thought it was part of a belt rig but it appears to go beyond the belt and further down. I also do not see an attachment on the top of the belt where a side strap would clip or snap on to. I then thought it could be perhaps a strap for a binocular case or a pouch but examples I have seen don't have this type of strap. There also appears to be something on the strap that runs from chest height to stomach height. It looks to have a handle so I am wondering if it may be a knife? Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thank you.
