With that said the webbing is strong enough but very thin. So when transition to different shooting positions the webbing edge feels like a razor blade against the side of your neck.
I do still recommend it. Has most of the features that high end slings have minus the padding against your neck. (Posted on 7/17/2019)

With the Paracord material as-is, there is little to no padding in the region where the sling would reside when suspended on the shoulder as the user hikes or standing guard for two examples. This seems like it would become EXTREMELY UNCOMFORTABLE in short order with the cord/buckle/etc., residing on thinly padded skin. Granted it is presumed that the user "might" have other materials or garments already in place (like the straps of a plate carrier, magazine carrier, assault pack or basic uniform or other garments) but without some intervening material I can forsee LOTS of discomfort and, perhaps, some chafed or pinched skin. NOT good when that compromised body part(s) are attached to your shooting shoulder, I might add.
Therefore, I'm curious as to anybody's suggestion(s) on how to prevent that from happening. Also, how difficult would it be to shorten one or both ends of paracord parts to reduce the overall length should all that much material not be needed or desired? Admittedly it would be advantageous to have the longer length to account for plate carriers being worn or heavier outer clothing in cooler climates, but generally speaking the extra lengths could become an issue for some. (Me?)
TIA for any suggestions but I'm already leaning towards buying one of these due to the excellent pricing.
Thanks, AR500, for providing quality gear at very fair prices.
That's why I continue to return when I need additional gear.
Have a GREAT Day! (Posted on 4/10/2019)
