Firefield introduced a novel two-point sling made from nylon paracord wrapped in a king cobra-style braid.
The sling itself measures 1.5 inches wide and can be adjusted between a length of 37.5 inches all the way up to 45 inches, ensuring a fit with any rifle or individual. The paracord is rated for use up to 550 pounds.
The sling comes with one attachment clip and features a quick-detach buckle that allows for easy access when needed. In a survival situation, the sling can be unwrapped to provide about 80 feet of usable nylon paracord, which is useful for nearly any conceivable situation.
Paracord first saw use with airborne infantry units and was first used in the suspension lines of parachutes. Today, its role has expanded to a general-purpose utility cord. The cord itself can be used in its original thickness or it can be cut open to reveal smaller wound strands on the interior. These smaller strands can be used for anything from boot laces to fishing lines.
The Firefield Tactical Paracord Sling weighs only 8.7 ounces and retails at a suggested price of $29.99.
