The sled is one of the coolest items in Sons of the Forest. It allows you to move really fast is you're by a slope. In order to use it, you just need to open your backpack and pull it out of the top left corner of your inventory. After that, go to the mountains or any area that has some hills for you to slide down.

Once you're positioned on a high spot with a smooth slope, grab your sled, jump, and click the left mouse button. Your character will sit on the Sled and you will be able to use it to slide down, avoiding any hazardous fall damage.

The Sled can be controlled, too. You don't need to worry about finding clean, straight roads to glide down. For some added flair, there's even a speed glitch you can use at launch to get to your destination that much faster. You'll struggle to control your direction, however, so it has limited practical use.
