OVERLAND PARK, Kansas – (ArmsVault) – Butler Creek, maker of smart, field-proven hunting and shooting accessories, announced today that the company’s new Featherlight sling is now shipping to retail partners and is available for purchase on the Butler Creek website.
The new Featherlight sling features an industry first design made from close cell foam and is 45% lighter than any other sling made by the company. The foam material not only helps to reduce weight but allows the sling to be extremely durable making it the perfect addition for any long gun this hunting season.
As comfortable as it is durable, the Featherlight is a true multi-purpose sling. Whether used on bolt-action, shotgun or modern sporting rifles, the Featherlight sling makes transporting any firearm into the field a breeze. Optional swivels or a conventional strap allow it to be easily added to any firearm, providing all day comfort on the most strenuous hunts.
Once in the field, hunters and shooters will appreciate the Featherlight’s breathable construction. Made possible by cut out slots that are evenly spaced across the close cell foam, the Featherlight sling reduces more trapped heat than other competitive models. The Featherlight’s close cell foam also provides superior gripping ability, allowing it to easily adhere to synthetic clothing.
For added security when navigating rough terrain, the Featherlight sling features a large thumb loop attached to the bottom of the sling. Additional features include two built-in cartridge holders giving shooters immediate access to extra ammo should the need arise. Adjustable from 22 to 36-inches, the Featherlight sling can be easily tailored to meet the required length of any user.
