The Diamond Patch In Your Backpack Is Not There For Nothing

We commonly see it on backpacks, thinking about the actual purpose of it. Yes, it was cool during the 90’s, and if you’re a Jansport kid. But today, I don’t think so. Questions rose when one too many brands released models with this questionable patch.

Turns out that this little patch exists for nothing. It is actually called “lash tab” or “pig snout”.

Its original purpose is to carry even more stuff that couldn’t fit inside your bag. Just simply hang your things through cords, tie them on the lash tab, and poof! An extra storage.
