During a Women's Wheeling Day event, NORA 4x4 ~ NorthEast OffRoad Adventures ~ held a hi-lift / winching class.

Jon, a i4wdta certified trainer, shared some really great recovery tips. He also showed us the many different types of recovery gear. One piece I had very little knowledge of was the soft shackle.

Jon sold me on the importance of this cool Jeep item.  I decided to go with the GatorJaw 7/16" Synthetic shackle

These things are beast. They have a 32,000 lb breaking strength. They are stronger than the steel shackles, and 10 times lighter. These flexible synthetic shackles float. Plus, you don't need to unscrew your shackle to use them. They just slip right thru the D-ring.

I used this shackle dozens of times on the trail over the years. It holds up amazingly.
