Basically, a bikini for your bow. Covers the cams, sight and quiver with a sling. Allows you to be hands free walking. So far, I have found it has not messed with my sights or settings. I like it.

Fits my set up perfectly and is ultra quiet! I love not having to worry about anything falling out when I climb my to my stand and it was well worth the cost.

Several reviews saying that this won't fit a Triax, well it fits mine just fine, and I've been using it for two seasons now with no special tricks or mods to it. Also fits my V3 31 and Bear Empire as well. I trust any of my bows in this sling and have never had the slightest of issues. It's real nice to have both hands free when going in or coming out, or even when taking the bow to the truck or coming back into the house. Didn't know that I needed this until I had it, now I can't go without.

Sitka gear is absolutely top of the line, the fact that there’s no way to secure the bow in the sling is a huge design flaw. My bow fell out and hit right on the sites while hunting in Utah.

This has got to be the biggest piece of junk I've ever bought. My V3 27 comes out all the time!. Thought I had maybe put it on wrong so I watched more than enough videos online and sure enough I had it on right! Ive dropped my brand new V3 5 times in 3 days of it being in the bow sling and honestly that is just unacceptable.

Every bow hunter should have this sling. This sling is a great way to protect your string and other parts you don’t want to break in the field. I like how you can remove the carry strap as well. I have used this when I only want protection for my bow string and cams but won’t need to sling it over my shoulder.

Great product, makes getting to and from with your bow much easier. Also love the addition of sight cover.

Exactly as described - I have a Mathews Chill and it works great - both the arrow and sight covers are great additions and its light weight as well. Not complicated to take on and off - easy and quick. Great job on design

The Sitka Bow Sling fits my BowTech RPM 360 perfectly ...
... & the included camo Sight Cover fits & covers my Garmin Xero to a T, & is always attached to the Bow Sling (it's great not having to "find" the Garmin sight cover for the Xero when packing-up) ...
I don't use the camo Fletching Cover for my arrows (5 arrow Tight Spot quiver), but I do find that it's a handy place to keep my primary thumb release close to the bow for storage.
Nice work as usual Sitka; too bad it doesn't work for "all" bows, but apparently for those it does fit, the owners are very pleased with the Bow Sling - I know I am.

Holds a Halon like a glove. It’s nice and secure and can be removed quickly. Only reason for not 5 stars is the way the covers attach if you are left handed you have to cross over the bow for the fletching cover. It still works fine just a chance of tangling the cord if needed to remove fast. Right handed bow this would be no problem.

Excellent design. Easy to slip on with Carbon RX-3. Perfect for long treks and saddle hunting stealth. Highly recommend.

My Triax fell out of this and scraped the cam and bumped my sight. I wasn’t too happy about that... I love Sitka, but this product is not trustworthy when it comes to carrying your bow.

Love the product but did not feel that I trusted the cover to securely hold my vertical limb Mathews properly. I could of been wrong but did not want to find out while I was in the back country. I had my wife make a small modification by adding some small web strapping and a buckle to both ends that securely hold the ends on to the bow around the limbs. Takes an additional 2 seconds to take the cover off but I no longer worry that the cams will slip out while hiking.

This design simply missed the mark; not compatibility to the Matthews Triax cams. I had a seamstress modify the sling material with feature that captures the upper and lower cam - otherwise the Triax platform simply falls out of the sling. Adapt, overcome and move on.

Love this! Was super handy when taking the bow for a long walk. Fits Mathews Avail great and is a comfortable sling.

I do love Sitka gear, but this product is a miss. Nice try, there is a need for a quality bow sling, in this pattern especially, but if you love your bow be real careful here. I bought a new $2k Mathews Triax rig and have had it fall out of the sling twice getting into the tree and several times just preparing to walk out in the woods. If you're raising it up in the tree by rope, make sure the rope is tied to the actual bow, not the strap (I did; this is not how it fell out). If you do not take extreme care in cinching down the cam covers it WILL fall out eventually. And if you DO cinch down the cam covers extra tight it can be a PITA trying to loosen up and stash the sling in the dark. Nice try, Sitka, A for effort, but you missed the mark here and for $89 that's a shame.

Super Nice product! I used it for my Halon 32, fits snug with the larger Cams and longer bow. Glad I purchased it.

Quality seemed good, but this doesn't fit the Bowtech Realm X or Insanity CPXL. Really disappointing.

Bought it on a splurge and glad I did. Awesome cover for my bow. Nice to cover sights and fletchings too. Not cheap but still Sitka quality. No regrets but yet to use in the field. If anything changes I’ll write a post. I just absolutely love Sitka gear. Spent my entire life buying average or cheap camo. Tons to get rid of. If I had bought quality for big bucks earlier, I would’ve saved a lot of money. Plus their stuff packs so dang easy.
Get it, you won’t regret it.

I own several bow slings and this one is the best of them all by far. The cam covers are well executed, hold very securely to the cams and will not slip off. The material on the cam covers is comprised of several layers, also.

The included fletching and sight covers are well thought out as well. One can remove them from their internal pockets to use, and unhook the teather if they want to, which I did on the scope cover but left the fletching cover attached by its long cord.

I use a Garmin Xero bow sight on my Carbon Defiant hunting bow, so I used the fletching cover over the sight and the scope cover to cover my 5-arrow Tightspot quiver hood.

All in all this is a really nice system, and I will be getting another for my CD34 back up bow. That one has a conventional sight on it, and I am not sure if I will use the covers the same way on it, or as they are intended. It is nice to have a choice and I highly recommend this bow sling. Otherwise I would certainly not be buying a second one.
