The problem with carabineer's is they sometimes are had to open or remove when they are under load.
Also most ditch bags float, either from installed floatation and/or from air inside the waterproof bag.
Attaching a ditch bag directly to your body or equipment
with a carbineer will effect the way you float in the water and could be deadly if it rolls you face down in the water.
It will also restrict your movement, especially trying to climb into a liferaft
My point is, if you use a carbineer, think about placing a polypropylene line between the ditch bag and the carabineer so these things wont happen.
