You make a valid point, a long military type lanyard could get caught in things. Anyhow as Delta has pointed out, at 0340 you may not have anything to attach it to, I know, its 0340 now here! (Cant sleep) and the choices are few!
I am talking wrist loop here. As I have said I have not used one, but I can see the advantage, and a wrist loop isnt going to get caught easily.
