Have had various cheapies over the years but I need something solid for mountain hunting. Does anyone have a good suggestion?

I really like the biathlon sling from tab gear. I hiked 8 miles one day and 5 the next with mine in rugged hills last week in South Africa and it really made life easy going up and down a whole lot easier.

I like these slings from Slogan Outdoors. I have the Magnum series that I use on several rifles.

I like the original Quake Claw sling. It does not slip and does have a little stretch to absorb some of the jarring when walking. I tried some of the neoprene slings and I didn't like them because they had too much stretch allowing them to "walk" off your shoulder, having to re position constantly.

The Safari Sling.

I own 3. The first one is still working like the newest ones 20 years later.

Not only comfortable, but allows you to carry the rifle across your chest at the ready position. Hands are free for binos, shooting sticks etc...

If youíre going to be walking a ways, say, on an elk hunt or something, Iíd recommend a Vero Vellini. They make a reasonably priced, quality product. Most importantly, they are comfortable and stick to your shoulder. Itís what I use when Iím chasing elk, and thatís no light statement.

If using traditional sling studs this is my favorite.

If flush cups are used then TAB, SAP and wiebad/rifles only stuff is great.

I agree with this ^
I have one on my .270 and wouldn't trade it. Most comfortable sling I've ever had.

I have 2 of Vero Vellinis and that will probably be the only ones I buy here on out.

I see you have already found Vellini, But for anyone else looking at this i use a mystery Ranch Quick draw sling in the mountains.

Iíve tried them all from $15-100. Used Vero Vellini until I stumbled upon a cheapo rubber Limbsaver with a fat ďcarry bulgeĒ just beneath the shoulder pad. Made things a lot more comfortable for me.

I donít use a sling on my rifle anymore for mountain hunting since I went with a rifle scabbard pack though.
