Here's Why You Have That Diamond Patch On Your Backpack

Ever wonder what that diamond patch on your backpack is for?

According to Marie Claire, the diamond patch is "called a 'lash tab' or 'pig snout' (cute), that leather's original intent is to hold extra gear on cords to be strung through the openings." It's pretty much a way to carry some extra stuff if it doesn't fit in the bag.
