A few weeks ago, a friend of mine at SpotterUp.com was browsing products at a local VA gun show and decided to be an extra nice guy by picking me up a MOS Tactical S4 Sling (Simple Solutions Survival Sling). I found these online at MosTactical’s website and saw that you get these with all sorts of attachments, patterns, and lengths.


Initially, I was more amused and thankful that I was considered for some early Christmas gifts early this year, and less concerned with the idea of me actually needing an additional sling. I already have well-established preferences for slings on my rifles/pistol cal carbines and I have not felt the need to change these up. Even though the S4 sling has not replaced any of my primary equipment, I did realize that this specific sling serves as the ultimate back-up multi-purpose sling. When I say multi-purpose, I’m talking about an endless amount of uses that are well-beyond firearm applications.


If you’re any flavor of outdoorsman, just think of all the times in the past where you needed or could have used a sling to help you carry, pull, tie-down, connect, or attach anything. Especially a sling that is ultra-compact with legitimate “heavy duty” stitching. MOS Tactical’s Facebook page demonstrates this with a video of the sling in action, attached between a few vehicles, check it out.

Of course towing a vehicle with a sling is not something you’ll likely be doing but it’s good to see how much abuse the S4 can take. A few more probable and practical ways I could use this sling are for things like a tourniquet strap, a back-up firearm sling, a back-up hammock tree-strap or hanging gear from a tree, attaching extra items to your pack, or a quick handle you can attach to almost anything to pull it.


This is a quality and compact single point sling that’s perfect to throw in your pocket or range bag to keep around as a back-up. I found out this was exactly the case when I went on a weekend deer rifle-opener a few weekends ago. The only item I forgot to pack was a sling for my .308 which normally wouldn’t be a big deal but the terrain at the hunt club was going to require some legitimate hiking around. I was lucky and had the S4 sling in my center console by chance and was one happy dude to see it.


Even though the S4 sling is available with various clash/mash hook styles. I’ve experimented around for a bit to see how I could attach mine to various firearms and found it was fairly easy to improvise with these attachments. The slings come in a range from 52”-58″ long and almost a dozen different patterns to match whatever gear you’ve got.


I would definitely recommend MOSTACs S4 sling for someone who’s looking for a quality multi-purpose sling at a good price $28.99. They’re fully American made and lifetime warrantied, go check them out!
