Rab Latok Mountain 2 - Loops - purpose? in The Gear Critic Posted January 5 The inside ones are for S&M with your partner! For real though, they are hollow tubes so you can wear a harness and be clipped into an anchor outside the tent. Ie if you’re camped on an exposed ledge, run a sling through the tube and anchor it to the ledge. Then when you’re inside the tent clip off to the sling that’s now hidden in the tube. If the tent disintegrates, you’re still tied off to an anchor.
