3 extra loops have Velcro so they fold on themselves to stay low profile
Found on ebay, paid a little less than $30 including the belt. This is my first vertical style pack to wear. The pods are easy to get to. The pull tabs are tapered to a point instead of squared off. Seems to be very well constructed. The plus 3 pod loops are very tight, its hard right now to put them in when the pack is off, obviously thats a good thing as I don't want them falling out as I am running. The 3 loops fold in between the 4 main pockets to be concealed to give a real sleek look when not used, using a small piece of velcro to accomplish this.
