poppers on chest rig

Anyone know what the poppers on the left hand shoulder strap are for?

Looks like a direct copy of the original NI issue one, so for some bit of radio kit that’s no longer used

A case of copying something without knowing how it works, another example is cadet vests faithfully copied from the issue right down to the holster in the left interior pocket…

I seem to remember early Osprey had something similar - a bit of elastic with a popper either end was supplied; I guess they were for routing cables or hydration tubes through.

Edit: They appear to have been for attaching the shoulders/sleeves - which I was never issued.
