Magpul’s new MS1 Padded Sling retains the functionality of their MS1 Sling but adds a very slick padded area. That means that like the original MS1, the new MS1 Padded Sling works well as a 2 point or single point sling and can be adjusted for length easily with the MS1 slider.
The most notable difference is the addition of padding. Magpul added the padding using a unique variable width tubular webbing that allows the body of the sling to widen seamlessly to adjust for the width of the closed cell foam padding. There are no folds, extra seams, or transitions between materials which allows the sling to move more freely with the wearer and prevents snagging on gear.
