THIS POST IS BEING KEPT UP TO DATE WITH AVAILABLE INVENTORY:

Some premade load slings for the mystery ranch guidelight or NICE frame. They're ~9" wide x ~29" long, there is 7" between the horizontal PALS rows. The orange ones have 2 loops on the rear for those split loop female face buckles to be moved to the rear if you flip it around so you can still anchor the corner straps off the frame to something. Other configurations can be custom made to order. $50 shipped with buckles.

Coyote/coyote: 1 in stock
Foliage/foliage (coyote trim): 1 in stock
Coyote/orange: 1 in stock
Foliage/orange (coyote trim): 0 in stock



Bladder slings for stone glacier frame. These have ladder locks on the top, bottom and lowest side spots, female buckles on the top two side spots. If someone wanted a different configuration (all female buckles, all ladderlocs, etc). it can be made to request. $45 shipped.

Ranger green/black: 2 in stock
Black: 1 in stock
Foliage green/black: 2 in stock



Bladder slings for mystery ranch coming. These will be $65shipped.

Coyote and foliage/coyote versions in the que.

I mostly sew custom requests so I can make whatever layout someone wants. Seeing as the SG has a shelf on the frame I would think a 20” or so tall pocket like that with 3 side (if desired) and top/bottom connections would compliment that frame well. Buckle gender and/or ladderlocs at each location would be based on preference.

Okay some test pieces I made to clock labor, the mystery ranch ones I'm using full straps stitched down along the back which is taking me longer and also uses quite a bit more webbing. The mystery ranch one are going to end up running $65 shipped. The simpler one I made for the stone glacier frame is less material and time, that'll run $45 shipped. For the the stone glacier I made up this one with ladder locks on the top, bottom and lowest side spots, female buckles on the top two side spots. But if someone wanted a different configuration (all female buckles, all ladderlocs, etc). they'd just need to request it.

Off hand I was planning to work a few mystery ranch ones in coyote and foliage into the build cycle, the stone glacier version in foliage and maybe a couple ranger green. If you want something else worked into the mix let me know what is of interest. These all will take some time but if you let me know you have interest in something I'll shoot you a message when that iteration gets done.

Yeah training is the majority of what I use my sling for also, that's a 60lb duct tape wrapped concrete sack in the photos, you can get those in various weights and just wrapping the rectangle in duct tape to reinforce the outside results in a nice dense shape that works well with the sling.

Want me to ping you about a certain color combo when ready?

Just saw your post about these load slings.
I have the mystery ranch metcalf on the guide lite frame.
Have been thinking about getting the mule bag for training & lite day hikes. Then I saw these.

Does your load sling have any pockets??

Are you asking if I can make a pocket to accompany the standard load sling with PALS/daisey chain in the first post? If so yes, just need to know the desired size and such. The bladder slings shown in post 4 have a built in pocket and shock cord criss cross to stuff a jacket under or such.

The pocket ones aren't build yet (other than the sample I made in post 4), I've mentioned them here so anyone considering the basic sling knows that option is coming. I'm taking note of anyone that wants to be notified on a color combination when available, I will temporarily hold them one before posting to premade inventory to see if they still are interested. Up in post 4 the pocket ones for the mystery ranch will run $65shipped based on the time that goes into those ones and extra material vs the smaller pocket panel shown for the stone glacier frame.

Bottle holder are over in this thread. I typically make ones for the guidelight to order vs prestocking them, a buckle loop that goes through the triangular opening at the rear corner of the belt where it meets the frame is the method I typically use for attaching those. https://www.rokslide.com/forums/threads/water-bottle-holders-xcurve-exo-pals.82130/#post811588

Thank you!
Yes please notify when you have some made or are going to put them up for sale.
I’m new to this style of backpacks so the terminology of descriptions I’m kinda clueless. Just got my metcalf in August

I’ll order a bottle holder too

Notify me please

I’d like to grab one for guidelight frame. Either foliage or coyote will work.

Could be used as stickit as well with pack???

Nice work! Thanks, Jesse
What version are you interested in?

It’s primary intention is a stand alone hauling sling but with some split bar buckles or other stuff like that I am sure folks could rig it up in that fashion if they are creative.
