They told us the name, but they did not tell us the purpose! It was not for "equipment", it was specifically for strapping for your ice axe.

It's not just vintage. If you look at any military backpack or piece of kit that has come out in the last 10 to 15 years, you will see attachment points like this which are often called Molle and are used to attach bags, equipment pouches pretty much anything to a larger pack and can be quite useful. That they don't just have the Vintage appeal now, they have a lot of real-world applications. Interesting to hear the origin though.
