Butler Creek Featherlight Sling

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – Butler Creek®, maker of smart, field-proven hunting and shooting accessories, has been awarded a 2020 Editors’ Choice Award by the staff of On Target magazine for the Featherlight Rifle Sling. The writers
from On Target praised the Featherlight Rifle Sling not only for its light weight and uncompromising construction, but for a price tag that puts it in the hands of more hunters.

“On Target Editors' Choice Awards are reserved for the best of the best new products – those that demonstrate outstanding technical achievement or represent an extraordinary value for the money,” said Ben Battles, editor of On Target. “The new Butler Creek Featherlight Rifle Sling, with its ultra-lightweight construction, quality of materials and exceedingly wallet-friendly price, raised the bar in terms of performance, feature-set and value. That easily earned it a 2020 On Target Editors’ Choice Award.”

The Butler Creek Featherlight Rifle Sling is constructed with patent-pending closed cell foam, which is 45 percent lighter than traditional padded rifle slings but gives hunters more comfort with increased breathability thanks to cut out slots. The sling includes a thumb loop for a more secure carry while navigating rough terrain, two built-in cartridge holders and an adjustable length between 22 inches and 36 inches.  The sling is available in multiple color patterns and styles, including a recently released camo version, and has an MSRP of $34.95.
