Looking for a recommendation on a good sling for my wife's and my AR's. Both are M4 style. Looking for a good sling that will allow us to comfortable carry and use our rifle while carrying out backpacks and gear in-case we have to bug out by foot. Right now I have single point slings on both, and they suck for this purpose.

I like the Vickers or Gear Sector two point slings for this.

Vickers Blue Force Gear

Gear Sector

Viking tactics 2pt sling

Tried most on the market and these are my favorite by far.

I'll second this....

I've moved through a bunch of slings that are now filling drawers in my gear pile. Three pointers, single pointers. The VTAC Padded 2 point is the most comfortable I've used so far. I ordered it from LaRue and IIRC it came with the QD swivels to boot cheaper than if I had ordered the sling and QDs separately.

Another vote for Vickers.
Due to the price, it's taking me a while to cover all the long guns, but I'm almost there.

They're just simple, and practical.

Shitcanned all the 3-point slings as a result.

I use Gear Force 2 point slings on all of mine. They are comfortable, adjustable, and easily adapt from a 2 point to a one point.

All of our AR's and AK's wear a Vickers 2pt....best thing out there for fast adjustment and comfortable carry, none of the extra crap of a 3pt getting in the way

A few folks recommend Savvy Snipers. I think that's what I'm going to try for my first sling.

Vtac 2 pt, acts like a 3 point but wears like a 2. So you don't need to skip rope to get into the thing.

Vtac if you anticipate moving around with the rifle slung on your back or Vickers if you anticipate the need to quickly transition from sholder to sholder

I spend more time with my rifle slung on my back than I do needing to quickly transition. Gutting deer, dragging deer, carrying stuff, etc

I bought a used V-TAC 2 point at the gun show today. I'll see how both my wife and I like it and go from there.
