    Gear sling

    I am thinking about purchasing a gear sling. Does anyone have any experience with them?

    Got 3 of them. Hang my CPAP (heavy) from the ridgeline in my Raven . If you want toughness, get the Hex70 XL fabric. Cinches on each end, full length zipper. Has pack hooks on each end-easy to hang from prussics. Can be used as a sling bag with an over the shoulder strap. Doesn't come with a strap but I have several and it is great to pack a jacket in for hikes. They are awesome as "grab and go" bags to hold hammock and suspension. Watch Shug video above!!!!!

    I think it depends on how much stuff you plan on storing. It is fairly big.

    Ha! A fabric bag with strings on the ends? Sounds like a perfect cat hammock! These look super handy and very versatile.

    For a 5 buck upgrade from the mesh RL organizer, it might be the best kept secret "value" add-on out there.
