    I cant see from the preference pics and ive had a look on here, but was looking for a definitive answer please guys. What is the accurate way to attach the clips/webbing combo to the jetpack itself? Do they attach inside the jp via holes or rivets to outside? thanks

    It would be your preference on how you want to attach. I'd have to look at the Paris Expo pics again but I think the straps go into the jetpack. I seem to remember a pic that shows this.

    Just checked, they appear to be riveted on. I think a lot of us route the straps into the pack & attach to something structural so we are not relying on a couple of rivets to hold the weight. I think that started back in the day where some of the packs weighed up to 10 pounds. With todays lighter fiberglass packs I don't think it necessary, rivets should be fine.
