Gear Haley Strategic Disruptive Environments Rifle Sling Recoil Staff February 8, 2016 While you may not necessarily need a sling if you're just going to blast off a magazine at a local indoor range, it's quite a different story if you plan on carrying a rifle for a long period of time or do any kind of advanced training. At this point, many experienced hunters, soldiers, shooters, and sportsmen have strong opinions about which sling they prefer, and we've come a long way since the days of using a parade sling in combat roles. Throwing a new option into the ring is Haley Strategic, with their new D3 rifle sling. Here's what they have to say about it: What started as a custom design built for his Force Recon platoon during a deployment became a lifelong mission for Travis Haley to build a rifle sling that works around the end user, and not the other way around. The D3 Rifle Sling can be run in single point or two point configuration and has been designed to transition between the two in moments. The sling includes two, positive locking QD swivels and features Haley's proven, SDI single hand quick adjustment system. The sling also debuts a low profile pad, inspired by climbing harnesses created by the world's leading mountaineering companies. A 5-layer laminated construction sealed with stretch woven materials, the pad provides stability and comfort without adding weight or bulk. The D3 Rifle Sling is the result of over 15 years of continuous use, revision and improvement, delivering a versatile platform intuitive to the point where the rifle becomes a natural extension of the body. Specifications include: • Comfortable Tweave® Durastretch® shoulder pad • T6 aluminum black anodized IWC/HSP 2 point to single point Triglide • MIL-W-4088 type 7 webbing • Standard Stainless Steel 1” QD sling swivel black oxide (front) • Stainless Steel 1” small D loop QD sling swivel black oxide (rear) • Berry Compliant: Berry Amendment (10 U.S.C. 2533a) compliant For more information watch the video below or visit Haley Strategic online here.
