The MS1 padded sling is the latest addition to the Magpul line of rifle slings. By adding a padded section of variable-width tubular webbing to the already proven MS1 sling, this new product provides more comfort to the user when carrying heavy weapons. Other padded slings simply sew the pad onto or around an already existing sling. What Magpul has done is taken a section of variable-width webbing of our proprietary weave and stitched a high-grade, ripstop coated, closed cell foam pad to the inside of the sling. This ensures that the pad will never move inside of its housing and because the taper of the sling is woven, not stitched, the padded section has no known points of failure. By removing the structural stitching from padded slings, Magpul has created a sleek and streamlined solution that exceeds all others in durability and aesthetics.
