For: Condor Outdoor Single Bungee Sling Set (Tan)Product Information:
The two Condor / OE TECH Single Bungee Sling Sets that I purchased exceeded most of my expectations. High quality nylon, smooth and easy adjustments, very strong and I completely trust it when I drop my primary to switch to my sidearm, I really like the design of the metal hook where the sling connects to my sling mount. (NOTE** the metal hook on the sling is not the same as the one pictured as of Nov. 16, 2013. There is no outer latch on the metal hook that can get caught on gear and cause your gun to fall due to being unhooked, which is a good thing. Look at the Lancer Tactical QD Single Point Sling to see a very similar hook design to what this one is like when you receive it.) I feel confident that it will not somehow accidentally unlatch during gameplay. The only thing that I was a bit disappointed with was the length of the sling. It's quite long and even when fully adjusted to the shortest point, my gun hangs pretty low for my liking, like another reviewer states. Not too low, but a bit lower than I would prefer. Some people may like this factor while others won't. I'm about 5'10", 180lb. and the sling hook sits at my waistline when the gun is slung directly in front of me and holding the weight of my gun (full metal Echo1 AK-74U BOLT). When moved to the side of my body under my arm, it sits another couple inches lower. This is not the type of sling where you can hang your gun on it and sprint.
Even with the length, I am still very pleased with my purchase.
High quality nylon.
High quality metal hook
Two ways to attach to your gun: either the metal hook or by the nylon strap if your primary has no rear sling mounts.
There are plastic parts on this sling, but they are all very strong and well built.
The quick detach feature is very convenient, especially after a game during break.
Where the metal hook is connected to the nylon sling, it has a durable rubber sleeve fitted to it. It's like a heat shrink. It keeps the sling from getting tangled up, making any cover blowing noises, and most importantly from scratching your gun. If it wasn't there I'm positive the receiver cover of my AK-74U would be pretty scratched up from quickly dropping it since it sits right next to it. The ONLY metal to metal contact with the sling to your gun is the hook and your sling mount. This is a huge Pro for me and I'm sure many others.
A little long for some people, just right for others. It's not a big con for me as I rarely use my secondary or run without holding my primary. If you plan on dropping and running, I would try to find something shorter.
