Hi! I'm a new member and these are my favorite slings (my others are too crappy to be shown).
The gray one was made with a piece of glove and zip ties.

Welcome Tejo

Good slings you have there.
I find my traditional primitive slings a little harder to use than my 'simple', easily assembled, synthetic cord slings

When I use my primitive slings that have each a few hours of labour into them, and I discover they don't sling as good as my paracord slings, I previously got discouraged to make traditional slings, thinking the added complexity wasn't worth it if it wasn't gonna sling better than the 5 minute paracord slings.

While these synethetic cord slings are easy for us to assemble and they sling really well, the truth is that even the most complex traditional slings made by hand are still more ''simple'' than the simplest of synthetic slings, being that synthetics requires oil being pumped up from deep inside the earth to be created and complex braiding machinery, and all the machinery for that, while the skillfully crafted ''traditional slings'' only require plant fibre and a pair of hands (and maybe some small weaving tools)

on't know why I rambling on I just felt like sharing these thoughts.

I agree with your thoughts, I have spent hours making some slings just to realize they are made from crap materials and will not work well. I will try to make a sling with phormium tenax plant when I can gather some leaves.

Nice work! Like the seat belt type attachment on the leather pouch.

Thanks! I made it like that to prevent the cords from ripping through the pouch.

I'm so impressed with how clean everyone's weaving is. I need to get back to making some woven pouches, particularly with the twining over sticks method.
