Closeouts. The slight stretch in the materials and the triple layer construction of this rifle sling from Vero Vellini provides shock absorption and helps keep your rifle from bouncing up and down as you walk. It's not just the weight of the rifle that makes it feel heavy when you're walking in the field or forest. The continuous shock of every step in rugged terrain can exert a pressure on your body of 3 to 4 times the weight of the gun. This sling helps to relieve every step, and, because of the swivels, it's great for rifles and shotguns with connector posts.
