Handling Long Guns

The revolutionary GunBearer® is a simple, efficient way to securely carry your long gun, transferring the weight comfortably to your hips leaving both your hands free for climbing, bushwhacking, whatever. No more rifle slings slipping off your shoulder, no more banged scopes. This is the safest, most comfortable way ever devised to carry your rifle and a backpack. With a flick of your wrist, your rifle or shotgun can be instantly shouldered for firing. Fully adjustable for any length rifle or shotgun, use it right or left handed, or remove it when you aren’t packing a long gun.

The Kifaru GunBearers®

Fits any Kifaru pack system (Kifaru packs only)
Offered as: GunBearer Right-Hand Carry and Left-Hand Carry

Originally invented for rambling in bear country, this is the safest, most comfortable way ever devised to carry your rifle and a backpack. Quicker than a shoulder sling, it’s fast enough for wing shooting. While many rifle slings function well for MOUT and CQB work, ours excel in rough terrain such as mountains and desert, where you need your hands free for bushwhacking or handling other equipment while still having quick access to your rifle for instant firing. The weight of the firearm rests on your waistbelt to keep your upper body from fatiguing.

Weight: 4.2oz
– Fits Kifaru pack belts only
– Forearm (Upper) strap: used to secure your rifle with optics (install on the lower metal 3-bar slider only). Offer for Right or Left-Handed individuals.
– Cradle Mount – Used to attach cradle to the PALS webbing of the waistbelt.
– Black Hypalon cradle with height adjustable black Nylon web lower strap

This carry system is a game-changer for me. It’s a very secure carry and a quick release. No more shoulder strain and my hands are freed up for pushing through brush, glassing, etc. Tried it out Spring goose hunting last weekend with my shotgun - loved it. It works with every rifle and shotgun I own.

For anyone that has struggled with the typical old school over-the-shoulder gun sling.....this is the answer to all the problems. Lightweight, well built, easy to use, gun slides out like butter and works as designed. Allows you to pack gun, protect scope and have both hands free. This is super nice when packing meat, glassing and using trekking poles while still being able to deploy gun in a second! One of my favorite things about my pack and Hunting system Blacktail buck killed using this sling, came around the corner of a hill and there he was at 50 yards onto me. No way using any other sling could I have made such a smooth transition to shouldering my rifle... big reason I killed this buck.

I've been hearing about the Kifaru gun bearer for many years. Have taken up longer hikes while hunting, and finally ordered one. It works every bit as well as I've heard, I'd recommend it to anyone. Service was excellent, shipping was fast

    Recently returned from CO First Rifle Elk hunt in which I used the gun bearer system. I thought it performed well and even the guide was thinking of purchasing one for himself. However, if your rifle uses an after-market cheek rest (I used a Kydex) the presence of the screws in the stock do not permit the stock to easily slide into cradle – the Kydex screws get hung up. It is a minor inconvenience though. My rifle always felt safe and secure and it kept both arms free for climbing on steep terrain. Very helpful on backpacking hunts.

    Its a good functional product but its grossly overpriced. Its basically nylon straps and velcro. The $60 price tag isn’t at all justifiable.

    Fully functional, I don’t really like how the tri-glides have the ability to rub on the stock, I eventually has to make a cover for them where they go through the Molle webbing. But it does function as designed and advertised.
