The Edgar Sherman Design Sling, ESD Sling, was designed with purpose, research extreme testing, and experience. The ESD Sling is adaptable to the end user. The ESD Sling is highly customizable to any rifle, subgun, shotgun, hunting rifle, bolt action and PDW weapon system. There are two adjustment sections on the ESD sling. A rear adjustment section to fit the ESD sling to your body size and additional gear. And a quick adjust section to loosen or tighten the sling while in use. The ESD Sling adjustment system is more adaptable to natural body movement and body mechanics. The 1-inch width of the ESD sling has less friction then wider slings and allows the ESD sling to move across your body without resistance.

The ESD sling has an elastic regulator preventing webbing from twisting or jamming when adjusting. This system also allows the sling to be folded up on itself and stored tightly to the weapon system. This feature is great for patrol vehicle storage or bag/pack/case storage. Simply pull on the ESD Sling to deploy the sling to its full length.

Key Features

  • NEW ESD Pull Tab featured on all slings! Enhanced grip for easier adjustability.
  • Quick adjust moves naturally in both opening and closing
  • Super lightweight
  • Streamline design
  • Can fold into itself and quickly be released from storage
  • Hand made in the USA
  • Berry compliant materials
  • 20+inches of adjustment in the rear section of the strap
  • Open Ends: This means that you will have an ITW triglide on each end of the sling to secure your attachment method. You could add any connection method for your rifle that you’d like and if needed trim the sling to your size (this is standard on most rifle slings).

What is currently available is in stock and will ship within one to five days.

    A Huge improvement with the self-contained sling and gross motor skill pull loop. Time will tell, but this may replace all my other slings.



  2. Anthony Chirillo (verified owner)

    Minimal, comfortable, and super easy to adjust. This is literally the best sling I have ever owned/used. Honestly, I can’t see myself buying or using anything else. Also, for anybody wondering, Slingster < ESD sling. Stop looking for other slings and pull the trigger on this one. You won’t regret it.

  3. John (verified owner)

    Dead Edgar Sherman Design. I really like this sling. The best feature of this sling, and all your slings is the is the ability to adjust it’s length to suit your needs.So simple but effective rugged and light. Thank You!! Good Job!

  4. Joe Assad (verified owner)

    Fully Functional, fast, and secure. I love mine, ordering a second.

  5. Ryan (verified owner)

    Love the sling. Slides both ways without having to fight any clamping mechanism first. Very slim and smooth design.

  6. PewPew So Hard (verified owner)

    absolutely great sling! i have many slings but this is definitely that best! and on top of it all the delivery turn around was super fast! needless to say you just got a lifetime customer

  7. William Ingwerson (verified owner)

    Great works as advertised. Comfortable and durable

  8. Robert C. (verified owner)

    The best no hassle minimalist sling out there!

  9. John C. (verified owner)

    Simple and effective. Will be replacing the slings on the rest of my rifles with the ESD. I love how easy it is to adjust and the added elastic band makes it easy to store in the vehicle or safe. Great quality and fast shipping.

  10. Nick (verified owner)

    Minimalist sling. Very slick and effective. Nothing to snag and catch on your kit. Very well thought out design

  11. ratmichards (verified owner)

    Take it from a real operator
    (crane operator)…
    I used to put M1 style slings on everything.
    Then I started doing tacticool shit, and watching YouTube videos, and I watched Sicario so you can consider me an expert.
    I anguished over this purchase. I looked at all the options and now that I have my ESD Sling in hand I know I made the right choice. It functions exactly as described and fit & finish justifies the cost. There’s a LOT of sling choices out there and I’m sure plenty of quality ones to chose from but for now I will beam with pride the next time I cinch my carbine to my body when I bend over to snatch a cold beer out of the cooler…. see you at the apocalypse!

  12. Robert (verified owner)

    Just received my two ESD slings, Love the quality, very well thought out with my favorite thing is how light and comfortable it is not to mention it looks absolutely great on my rifle. I will be buying more for other builds.

  13. KEVIN BICKERTON (verified owner)

    Easy to adjust, looks great, durable, light…….however the quick adjust could get caught on stuff. Low probability but still being a loop, it could snag you up on something. I also wish it came with QD swivels. Great sling minus those two things.

  14. Damon Block (verified owner)

    Best sling I own. I recommend it to everyone. It is the easiest adjusting sling I have ever used five stars don’t even do it justice…

  15. David Kikukawa (verified owner)

    Simply THE sling.
    Don’t settle for anything else.

  16. Jeff Scheider (verified owner)

    I love the simplicity of this Sling. It just works. I used to think I liked a padded sling, but after a while, it would dig into your collar and be uncomfortable. I love the slider on this sling as well. I have had other slides and twist and it’s a nightmare to untwist. I’m planning on adding these to all of my rifles moving forward.

  17. Justin Alvarez (verified owner)

    Never buying any other sling brand ever again. It’s fantastic.

  18. Chad (verified owner)

    Minimalist, simple and very light. I highly recommend this sling but if you have a heavier rifle setup that has to be carried for an extended period of time, a sling with a pad and/or wider strap may be more comfortable. However, for 90% of applications and setups – this sling functions great. Will be buying more…

  19. Antone R. (verified owner)

    Simple, minimal sling that gets the job done. Plenty of adjustment on set up and with the slider. All in all I’m happy with it and give it two thumbs up.

  20. Mike Salkco (verified owner)

    Finally able to use during some training, Very sleek nothing to snag on gear able to make quick effortless adjustment.

  21. Rob Gollhofer (verified owner)

    Love this sling- like Ricky Bobby said-“if you don’t use this sling then F you!”

  22. Brandon (verified owner)

    Simple and to the point. Best sling I have ever used. The pull tab is simply genius. I’ll never use another sling

  23. JC Brown (verified owner)

    Great product simplicity and quality!

  24. asusports (verified owner)

    Love it! Looks great on my HB! Easy to use! I will be getting a few more! Thank you for a great product!

  25. Tyler Briers-buentello

    Best sling I have used for sure. Minimalist design and ease of use are my favorite points. I would give 4.99 stars because no ODG.

  26. John (verified owner)

    Got out to the range and was able to use my ESD Sling. Absolutely love it! Quick easy adjustment, never snagged on any gear, light weight yet durable.

  27. Frank Jones (verified owner)

    Loving it….

  28. LEIF GOODWIN (verified owner)

    This sling design is unparalleled, you want a 2 point with no hanging straps? You want fast one handed adjustment? You want very fast shipping?
    Then you want/need an ESD sling, this is the new standard.
    Makes me proud this genius device came from New Hampshire because here we “live free or die”

    Leif Goodwin

  29. Matt (verified owner)

    Since I got my fist ESS sling I won’t go back, no snagging, easiest adjustment and use them on every from my AR pistol to my bolt action rifles. Will never buy another brand again.

  30. ranrey58

    Great fit for my Q Honey Badger 300 blackout pistol. The sling arrived earlier this week and yesterday I was using it to walk through some West Texas terrain while pig hunting, in 100 degree heat. I like how light but strong it is and its quick adjustability when using it for support when shooting without a rest. The light weight and less bulk is a game changer on the AR pistol, IMO. Thanks!

  31. D’aath

    My second ESD sling. I absolutely love the well thought out, lightweight, minimalist design. The wolf grey is gorgeous, and will have a good home where it’s abuse will be unrelenting and excessive. The movement of the sling is smooth and easy, yet secure. Edgar is a pretty fantastic guy too. I have no doubts that there will be more ESD gear in my future.

  32. Ian (verified owner)

    Sling is awesome. If it was padded like the BFG slings I would never buy any other slings again. The quality is great, and the smoothness of the buckle to loosen and tighten is amazing.

  33. leif goodwin (verified owner)

    Just received my 2nd ESD sling, what can I say other than they’re perfect. Every rifle I have or will have will be wearing one of these.

  34. Jeff V (verified owner)

    Extremely happy with the performance and look of this sling. It’s lightweight, simple, yet innovative design allow it to deploy quickly. The pull-tab feature for quick deployments and adjustments is a game changer!

  35. Aaron (verified owner)

    The sling fits great and is super easy to attach. The storage feature is awesome and the adjustable feature is fast and easy to use.

  36. Brandon (verified owner)

    Skip all of the other slings. This is the only one you need, if you can snag one while they’re in stock. Simple, cheap made in America.

  37. Jake (verified owner)

    Great quality and plenty of adjustment. I put it through it’s paces on the range and it performed flawlessly, I couldn’t be happier with it!

  38. John Leonard (verified owner)

    Switched from a vickers sling to an ESD and I’m never going back. I appreciate the craftsmanship which ultimately leads to better form and function. Highly recommend

  39. Lee Cardwell (verified owner)

    I have only used this sling once so far but it’s really become my favorite sling. I love that there is no cutting the sling to length, just adjust the slider to your size and go. It’s super lightweight and very minimalist. I see now why these are so highly recommended. It’s an excellent product and you wont be disappointed.

  40. Tanner Denton (verified owner)

    Great innovation and sling design. Would buy all the colors if they were available!

  41. chasemorg1993 (verified owner)

    The sling is literally a 99.9/100. I have two of them, I just got my second one in the mail. The minimalist design is perfect and quality built. The only thing I can complain about is the fact that I ordered Two of the slings that are shown with the circular thumb loops instead of the semi-circle thumb loops, but I received the semi-circles instead of what was shown in the picture. I added that in the note on my second order and didn’t hear anything back about it. I still would REALLY like to have the circular thumb loops. H O W E V E R… this is just me being a brat, because it’s not what is advertised. The sling is P E R F E C T. Regardless of anything, I will be a returning customer. Great job, Edgar!

  42. KS (verified owner)

    This functions just as described and the way I wish my other “quick” adjustable slings should function.

  43. Constantine (verified owner)

    Need to work with it some more, but so far, it’s well made and comfortable. I’m using paracord in the front and looped it through the slot in the ACS stock and it works really well. Also, as a larger guy, the high level of adjustablilty and long length work really well for me.

    As Wayne might say, If you’ve got a problem with Edgar’s slings, you’ve got a problem with me, and I suggest you let that one marinate.

  44. Nicholas (verified owner)

    Have ordered $200 worth of slings so far, in Black, Coyote, and Multi-Cam. Hands down the best and easiest sling to use. There is a reason that they are always sold out and you have to wait list. Be patient, they will come back in stock, and when they do order quick!

  45. Chris (verified owner)

    Great sling! The quick-adjust feature is one of the best I’ve used, easy to shorten and lengthen, nice range of lengths, and it holds very solidly when you load the sling. I also appreciated how easy it is to tailor the overall length of the sling non-quick adjust portion of the sling to the user, so that you get maximum benefit from the quick adjustment.

  46. Jesse (verified owner)

    Great minimalist sling. Arrived quickly and like that the pull-tab can be removed if you want without destroying anything. Great sling definitely recommend and will be buying more!

  47. Thomas Burke (verified owner)

    Easy installation and great sling. Simple and well thought out,

  48. ANDREW FOULKS (verified owner)

    Love the Black Multicam sling I picked up for my 300blk pistol. Easy to adjust and the added band makes it easy to store and deploy.

  49. Amaan (verified owner)

    I added this sling to my AR. The comfort, ease of adjustment, and flexibility made this one a great addition to the rifle. It keeps my weapon right where I need it when training.

  50. Corey Schmidt (verified owner)

    Great sling very simple design smooth adjustment and love that it can retain itself

  51. Dave H (verified owner)

    Have both the Multicam black and the M81. I won’t even bother with other slings now. ESD makes a genuinely great product and I’m happy to recommend them

  52. Steel (verified owner)

    Great customer service and fast shipping and such nice slings! So easy to adjust it’s amazing! Simple. Buy one. Or two haha

  53. Brian Schmitt (verified owner)

    A very durable and simplistic design. This is everything you need in a good sling without the extra BS. The pull tab design and function is flawless. This is my second sling and I will continue to support ES with all my slings moving forward.

  54. Charles (verified owner)

    Absolutely amazing best sling out there !!!!

  55. John Steil (verified owner)

    Haven’t been using this sling for long, but it’s quickly becoming my favorite; it’s far more intuitive and user friendly than the slingster (FC fear is still solid)… sold 4 slingsters after running the ESD sling for about a week, was using slingsters exclusively for about 2 years before that. I really dig the captured tail and how the sling adjusts to wearing different load outs with ease; this is something I was never able to do with the slingster. I will be purchasing more slings to match different load outs, because let’s be honest, tactical gear is grown men’s dress up, and we all want to look cool.

  56. Devin Hoover (verified owner)

    I haven’t had if for very long but it has been a great sling. Very easy and smooth to adjust on the fly. I bought the Black Multi cam and the material and color is great.

  57. Blake K Allison (verified owner)

    Great sling! Simple design that works well. Presentation from low or high ready is smooth and just a quick pull it’s nice and tight for controlled longer range target acquisition. I will definitely buy another or a few more.

  58. Lee Whitehorn (verified owner)

    I like your sling man, fair product at fair price. Still loving slingster by Ferro Concepts also. ESD definitely more suitable for lightweight platforms.

  59. DD (verified owner)

    Fast and easy to adjust, great quality, highly recommend!!

  60. Vince Perea (verified owner)

    Great quality and easy to use. Definitely high speed!

  61. ratmichards (verified owner)

    Is too bad I can’t post a stick pic. I’m up to 2 slings and 2 EFG’s now. Yes they work exactly as expected but they look cool too, and that is REALLY important…

  62. Kyle

    First quality sling, the ease of tightening and loosening makes it well worth it.

  63. Corey Lecuyer (verified owner)

    This sling makes me angry every time I use it!!!
    Angry I didn’t have this threw all my deployments. Threw my years in the Service. Its amazing. On the fly adjustments. Durable. Soooo very light. Love it!!! If you are thinking about it. You need it. Done and done!!

  64. Brandon Smith (verified owner)

    Reviewing the ESD Sling is very simple, it’s perfect. It’s so soft and smooth, yet really hard in all right places and you know it will get you through whatever you need. We also need to address its sex appeal, I mean shit, have you seen the sex loft these items are designed in?! It would only make sense that this can get you through a gun fight and double as a tie down in the bedroom with the hottest of women. My goal, buy every sling as it comes in stock, your goal, should be the same.

  65. Chase (verified owner)

    I own five of these slings and plan on buying more. These are the best slings in the market! The design is flawless, of course with the OLD STYLE CIRCULAR thumb loop! If you hate the new style thumb loops, let Edgar know! We need the old style thumb loops back!

  66. James (verified owner)

    Love the feel and functionality of these-will definitely be back for more!

  67. Mack (verified owner)

    Great sling. Very minimal and light weight. Adjust on a dime and it’s very user friendly. I’d recommend it to just about anyone

  68. Mattox (verified owner)

    Received as described. Looks fantastic and shipped SUPER fast. Can’t advise of practicality yet because it’s not fitted to my new PDW yet. But looks and feels like it’s going to be awesome! A++. Will order more.

  69. Chris (verified owner)

    Amazing. I end through four or five other brands before I find this. All I have to say is that I absolutely love it.

  70. Pedro (verified owner)

    Best two point sling I’ve ever used, hands down one of the best out there.

  71. Toby Kelley (verified owner)

    I have purchased two of these now. One for work gun and one for personal. The simplicity coupled with functionality of this sling is what drove me to buy. Slowly the rest of the team is seeing this as being a great sling and transitioning over. Great job guys!!

  72. Seth (verified owner)

    Minimal, comfortable, perfect. Highly recommended for all skill levels. Ease of adjustment allows for quick familiarity. Absolutely satisfied, will buy again.

  73. Brandon Pelletier (verified owner)

    What more to say, as far as unpadded slings go this is the cream of the crop. The slickest slidiest boi on the market. You will say why do I have this “insert sling here” and before you know it every rifle/shotgun you own will have one.

  74. Juan L (verified owner)

    Coyote Brown for my Honey Badger. Sling is light and very good quality. It does what is promised and I recommend for anyone interested in slings for their hardware. If you ever find ES slings available, then you buy that shit without hesitation!

  75. Marshall (verified owner)

    This sling is the tits!!!

  76. Jeepnpew (verified owner)

    After purchasing my first sling I was done with all my other ones and replaced each one with a esd sling.

  77. Alfred Pennyworth (verified owner)

    Fast shipping, solid design, excellent functionality

  78. Kristian (verified owner)

    My sling got here fast, which I definitely appreciate. It’s very well-made, the pull-tab is easy to actuate, and the multicam (arid) looks pretty sick. It’s fairly thin and not terribly wide, which has pros and cons for me. Because it’s thin/slim, it makes it easy to wear with a backpack and other kit – it also has a tendency to twist and dig into me, something that doesn’t happen as often with other padded slings. Overall though, I really like it – I would especially recommend it if you like more streamlined stuff

  79. David Khoii (verified owner)

    This is an awesome sling! Simple and light, I like it much better than the Magpul MS1 sling I was using. Shipping was also excellent! VERY QUICK! Thanks, ESD!

  80. C Mo (verified owner)

    Great sling! Made well! Super easy to adjust on the fly! Have and will continue to recommend!

  81. Cade Downen (verified owner)

    Best of the best, self contained design is perfect and simple. Thin design is very light and comfortable, also for the price point they can not be beaten.

  82. Dylan Laser (verified owner)

    Stumbled upon this sling in a video by Ronan Tactical, immediately became convinced due to its simplicity. Ordered one for my AR setup and was not disappointed. Already ordered another one to go on one of my hunting rifles.

  83. Scott Hamann (verified owner)

    I bought 6 on a recommendation and happy I did. Will own a few more when they are back in stock

  84. Cade Downen (verified owner)

    Simply the best. Lightweight and durable. Quick adjust is perfect. I have 2 now and abused them.
