cotton with kevlar stitching and wrap, beeswax coating, kevlar cracker, 1st attempt at a hybrid style trying to make a balearic style with a 4 round braid rather than flat 5. this one iíll be modifying the pouch on, as itís a little thin even after tapering up after the knee, and doesnít hold projectiles well. i would also credit that to the round shape

this is version 2.0 of the balearic hybrid type iíve been trying at. this one is hemp, and once it gets a shave will also be coated with beeswax. i added a 5th and 6th cord in about an inch above the pouch and used those to form the knee as well as the snake braid for the pouches. if this design proves successful i will probably remake it in a larger version.

Welcome from Finland! Looks awesome but you might need to scale the photos down a bit. Right of passage is working out how to size photos to work on the forum Cheesy

    Welcome from New Jersey, BridgeBurner.  Nice looking slings.  I was stationed at Ft. Campbell for seventeen months. Are you near there? 
Please make your pictures smaller when you post. I fixed them for you.  Thanks.
