Highland Outdoors have a varied and very strong portfolio of ‘brands’ that they now distribute in the UK, with American-based shooting accessory manufacturer, Allen Company, being just one. Amongst the many accessories and products they offer is a well-rounded range of slings for both rifles and/ or shotguns. To illustrate the choice of ‘designs’, I’ve chosen the Padded Endura Rifle Sling (Black), Cascade Rifle Sling, High Country Rifle Sling Realtree AP Camo and the Yukon Rifle Sling in Infinity Camo. To save on repetition, all come supplied and ready fitted with good quality metal QD sling swivels but note that all slings can be purchased without, should you prefer an alternative brand of attachment.
All are manufactured from Cordura, have strong Nylon webbing, and where applicable and ‘stated’, good quality Neoprene is used. ABS slide buckles cater for length adjustment and all have well-sized ‘fixed’ shoulder pads with textured non-slip inners. Also, apart from the ‘Endura’ all others have thumb loops to aid ‘userstability’ once shouldered.
First up, is the Endura and although quite basic compared to the others, is still extremely comfortable when worn, due to the 2½-inches wide, wellpadded black shoulder strap. Interestingly, the main webbing is uninterrupted as it passes over the front of the shoulder pad. This doesn’t mean that the pad can be slid down the webbing, as it’s double stitched in position. As a matter of interest, the Yukon uses a similar design, which helps balance and position the sling’s pad correctly in place where it passes over the shoulder. Next up is the ‘Cascade’, which features a 2½-inches wide ‘Neoprene Shoulder Strap’, with Realtree AP HD camo frontage, complete with strong double stitched side trim.
The High Country ‘Ultralight Moulded’ Rifle Sling is classed as giving the wearer ‘multicushion comfort’, due to the way the padding has been cleverly integrated into the nicely contoured ‘moulded’ shoulder pad. This design results in the padded section being 2½-inches wide for most of it length, widening out slowly and slightly at both ends to 2¾-inches in width. This, combined with the shoulder straps inner ‘non-slip’ material and sections of deep recessed ridging, holds your rifle very securely on the shoulder. The front is adorned with the Infinity Camo pattern and features a double stitched trim.
Finally, we have the Yukon Rifle Sling, also in Infinity Camo. The Neoprene shoulder pad is quite thick compared to the others. What will bring favour with riflemen, is that there are four elasticated bullet/cartridge holders on the front of the 2-inches wide shoulder pad that cater for .222 calibre upwards.
