It appears to be a basic un-padded rifle sling, and it is but it's a lot more. The sling is made of flat tubular webbing so you're getting two layers of webbing although it feels and looks like one. It's very soft and pliable, not at all stiff, and comfortable to wear despite the lack of extra padding. The thumb loop makes length adjustments in either direction fast and easy. The adjustment loop is large, big enough to get even a gloved thumb in without fumbling. Installation following the manufactures instruction videos (link is provided with the product) makes installation easy and simple. The sling came with no extra swivels or other hardware etc, but you can add your own quick release ones if desired. I rigged it as basic as possible (less to tangle or fail that way) and it works great. Very happy with this purchase and will probably purchase another for my shotgun soon. The stitching is strong and the hardware robust. I'm very happy with this purchase.
