People are just discovering why jackets have built-in straps on the shoulders and it’s blowing their minds

A MAN has gone viral after revealing exactly what shoulder straps are for on jackets.

Sidney Raz has been making TikTok videos of all the things he wishes he knew before he turned 30, with the latest being "the reason why jackets have shoulder straps".



Sharing a screenshot from Wikipedia, he added: "They were originally designed to keep backpacks, ammunition pouches or bayonets from slipping off your shoulder."

Demonstrating on his leather jacket, he undid the strap, put a bag strap over his shoulder and did the strap up again.

He then showed how the bag couldn't be removed, pulling it energetically as he joked: "Honey, come try to steal my purse."

His revelation left thousands of people stunned, many of whom took to the comments section to express their admiration for the hack.
