Blue Force Gear Limited Edition – VCAS Tiger Stripe Sling

Wednesday, February 14th, 2024

Introducing the Limited Edition VCAS GTS Sling – a fusion of a historical camo pattern with an iconic weapon sling design. This exclusive two-point, quick-adjustment sling in GTS (Green Tiger Stripe) pattern is brought to you by TFBTV host, James Reeves, and Blue Force Gear. “Tiger Stripe is a functional and interesting pattern, which also happens to be timeless.”, stated Reeves, while attending SHOT Show 2024. “…aesthetically pleasing camo in spite of the fact that it was never formally adopted by the US military.”

Reeves also adds a dose of history here, “…It was so effective that military advisors and special operations units in Vietnam, sourced the pattern locally and unofficially adopted it themselves.” Talk about resourcefulness.

“In that way, the pattern is itself an homage to ingenuity and improvisation. When I approached BFG about making the Vickers sling in the pattern, it was because the origins of Tiger Stripe are in alignment with BFG’s philosophy- Always Better. Plus, I selfishly wanted the best sling in the world, in one of the best camo patterns ever devised.” -James Reeves, TFBTV.

Only available at and by subscribing to the email notice of their release, there are limited quantities, so get them while you can. 500 are being produced in VCAS and VCAS push button slings.  Take advantage and own a tribute piece of military history, blending the legacy of the Green Tiger Stripe pattern, with the renowned Vickers Sling.
