Any of you know what 5,20m means in length for a sling? I was looking at the garisol sling site and they list that as the largest they have that is best for all carry holds.
I tried googling it but come up short.
Thanks!

Re: Ring Sling-- best uses

I have a ZanyToes Splash RS & I only use it to walk my baby down to the water & take him for a dip. I can't imagine using it for over an hour - too much stress on my one shoulder.

Re: Ring Sling-- best uses

Fjb74,
The "5,20m" you are seeing means that the girasol wrap/ sling is 5.2 meters long. European /non-US websites often use the word "sling" for wraps as well as ring slings. Also, Europeans use commas as decimal points (rather than periods).
So what you were looking at on the girasol site was a very long wrap, not a ring sling. Ring slings will typically come in sizes like Medium, Large, etc. or else would be around 2 meters long.
