Slings made from upcycled inner tubes of truck and bike tires

There’s a lot of green gear out there waiting for eco warriors to take them in, but a lot of it can get pretty apeish. Besides my trusty Freitag and a tarpaulin tote I carry for a laugh, I have one of these badass English Retreads shoulder slings. These are made from upcycled inner tubes of truck and bike tires, come with gorgeous metal rivets, and are tough as hell. Rather than kill an ungulate to make a bag, it’s like they’ve killed (okay, scavenged) a monster truck instead. Which feels great.
