Wear pads give a sling extra protection from abrasion where it is needed.  They can be made from nylon or polyester webbing, Cordura nylon, rubber or leather.  Leather is the most cut resistant, but is subject to oil, grease and weather deterioration.  Wear pads may reduce, but may not eliminate, cutting, puncturing or abrasion.
Cordura Wear Pad
Sewn on one or both sides of the sling to protect anticipated wear points.
Rubber Webbing Protector
Protects one side and edges of the sling.  Moveable. 1, 2, 3, and 4 in.
Cordura Sliding Sleeve
Protects both sides of the sling. May be shifted to the wear points.
