The Generational Guarantee - Leave Your Children Something To Fight Over

100-Year Warranty - 

Our philosophy is simple - Exceed our customers expectations no matter the cost. We'll never mass produce, we'll never sacrifice quality, and nothing will ever leave our shop unless we're certain it will last 100 years. Every piece of leather is built with pride and integrity to provide a lifetime of satisfaction. We're so confident in our talented craftsmen, durable materials, and outstanding designs, that we warranty them against workmanship for 100 years. This warranty applies to products used responsibly. Exposure to chemicals like chlorine, detergent, or conditioners that result in a breakdown of the material or damage caused by misuse (dog chewing, water exposure, broken zippers, or road rash, etc.) will void the 100 year warranty. 

If your product does not hold up in the conditions it is supposed to, we'll fix it or replace it. If for some reason we can't fix it, we'll give you store credit. You can contact us by emailing Orders@TheSouthernTrapper.com. 

To receive our 100-Year Warranty, you must register your product with our Warranty Department within 30 days of receiving it in the mail. Click here to register your product. 

30-Day Money Back Guarantee - 

When you order a product that has NOT been customized with initials, laser/light/red dot sights, or different colors, you'll receive a 30-day money back guarantee. If the item you receive is not what we described it as, please contact us within 30 days and as long the item is in like-new condition, we'll refund or exchange the item for you. Please contact us by email at Hello@TheSouthernTrapper.com and attach photos with your order number and describe the situation to us, and we'll get back to you quickly. To fit properly, our products require a break-in period before they will function as intended. Here are instructions on how to break in a leather holster. Items that have been customized or custom made cannot be exchanged, returned, or refunded for store credit. Examples of "customized" orders includes: products that have been customized with initials, embossments, lights, lasers, red dot sights and other available customizations. This guarantee does not cover unintentional customer mistakes, such as choosing the wrong gun, the wrong size or color, or the wrong hand orientation.

First Mate Rifle Sling

Was a great overall experience. I ordered this sling for my Dads brand new rifle for his birthday. The box and presentation in which the sling was delivered was very impressive, time was taken in packaging this piece and it shows. Will be looking into a new sling for myself! Well done.

First mate sling/custom "The professional" holster

Both items exceeded my expectations. The overall craftsmanship is superb. The look, fit and finish are phenomenal. Doing Business with Southern Trapper has been an awesome experience. Every one that I have had the privilege of speaking to personally has made all of my purchases a joy. I look forward to continuing to do business with the Southern Trapper in the future. Thank you so very much!!! J.Burke

Impressed.

Purchased this rifle sling for a gift, shipping was fast and packaging was very nice. Loved the hand written note. This is definitely a quality piece and will last for many years to come.

Each rifle sling comes with 1” wide black steel locking swivels that mount to any swivel stud.

Choose up to three letters in the order first name, middle name, last name. The ¾ inch Times New Roman letters are embossed above the thumb hole (see photo above). We do not hand paint gold letters and we do not emboss numbers.

The convenient thumb hole opening makes it easier to carry your firearm under normal and stressful conditions. You’ll be able to safely and comfortably carry your firearm, without having to constantly readjust the firearm on your shoulder, allowing your focus to stay in the hunt.
