Sling to vest attachment

Recommended Posts

Hi all, passing the time waiting for my UKARA to come through by trying to sort out which sling to get.

 

My cheapo dutch assault vest has a clip on each shoulder, is there a sling type which attaches to these? Or do they have another purpose?

Only ones I've seen that will attach to a vest just go through a loop of fabric.

You'll be able to buy the plastic clips and a couple of tri-glides or something for pennies to convert a sling yourself!

 

Purely random selection from eBay to give you an idea:

If your rig isn't snugly fitted, hanging a gun off it will pull it out of position. There's plenty of Molle based single points available that use a T shaped end piece that threads through a MOLLE loop on the back of your shoulder which spread the load a bit better. Personally I'd say use a standard style of single point sling for more range of movement until you decide exactly how you want it to be.

You need a Y sling. I have one for my Condor chest rig.

Awesome, thanks guys. Might go for a regular one point and then convert it to the right connectors depending on how I find it.

So that's what they're called, it's funny how you can use these things for years and yet have no idea what their name is.
