Butler Creek, maker of smart, field-proven hunting and shooting accessories, announces that the new Featherlight Minimalist Sling is available at retail just in time for this year’s hunting season. The new rifle sling is designed for backcountry hunters needing a simple, dependable sling that doesn’t interfere with their backpack and gear, all while maintaining maximum strength and durability.
While other, bulky rifle slings can get caught up in your backpack straps, the Minimalist Sling has a low-profile design that forms to your shoulder and provides a non-slip grip. When not in use, the extremely compact sling can be rolled up into the size of a baseball and stuffed in a pocket.
“Just as its name implies, the new Minimalist sling offers hunters a functional, modest design that offers all the features you need without extra weight or bulk”, said Monte Koenigs, product manager for Butler Creek. “The new sling expands our popular line of Featherlight models, which includes several of the lightest and strongest slings in the industry.”
Weighing in at only three ounces (including the steel swivels), the Minimalist Sling’s 0.04" thick hyper-lite material boasts extreme tensile strength at more than 3,000 pounds per square inch. It can also handle extreme temperatures ranging from -22° F to 248° F, so hunters will never have to wonder if it can stand up to the harshest conditions.
The Featherlight Minimalist Sling is available in four colors: black, black and tan, black and orange, and gray with Prym1® camo.
