100-Year Warranty... 

Our philosophy is simple - Exceed your 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.

Thumb Hole...

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.

Leather with “Gentleman-like traits”...

Our leather slings are soft & strong, yet quietly ready for anything. We pride ourselves on offering undoubtedly reliable leather rifle slings that are comfortably casual, even while under pressure. The water resistant finish provides protection against rain, sleet, and snow. Our leather slings age with a natural patina and will enhance with wear.  

Never sacrifice quality and never mass produce...

Nothing profoundly satisfying happens overnight, including our slings. Our team of master craftsmen delicately handcraft each sling entirely by hand. While you may think we’re out fishing, we’re actually meticulously perfecting your sling to ensure it provides generational satisfaction. Your grandkids will enjoy it as much as you did.

Field Tested...

Field tested by Dads, Cowboys, Professional Athletes, Game Wardens, and by our nation’s war hero's, our collections will outlast and outperform all. Like a great hunting dog, our slings are there when you need them. We’ve spent months in development by spending weeks in the duck blind, days in deer stand, and weekends on the river, all to ensure each product will withstand a lifetime of abuse.

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.

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.

I put this sling on my Tikka T3 308 and it looks awesome. Very comfortable on the shoulder, the thumb hole is an excellent touch along with my initials. Couldn't ask for a better product
