The 3HGR slings were developed in Finland in co-operation with experienced hunters. Every detail has been carefully designed and tested. Not only did we challenge the traditional concept of the gun sling, we challenged the technology used to manufacture it. Every critical component of the product is manufactured by us, in Finland. Our mission is to provide Premium slings for hunters, who dare to venture into the true wilderness.

While in the forest in the autumn of 2011, I found myself thinking about how tree trunks could help me to shoot from a seated position as well as with a higher angle. The image of a product and its features began to form, but I couldn’t find anything similar in Finland or from other sources, or even from the patent databases. I’ve hunted for more than 20 years. I’ve also worked with shooting and firearms my whole career. I’ve served in the Finnish defensive forces as a sniper instructor and for the last 10 years I’ve worked as a border guard.
