Our Shoulder Strap Pads add extra padding to your shoulder straps right where you need it. These shoulder strap pads should be compatible with almost any backpack straps. They are made with 3/8" closed cell foam, and a layer of soft cushioning 3D mesh on the underside. 

  • 3D Mesh on the bottom, 3.1 oz/sqyd Hybrid Dyneema® Composite Fabric on the top, 3/8" Closed cell foam in the middle.

  • Two Velcro bands hold it in place. Attach the bands through your shoulder strap's daisy chain so they can't move up or down.

  • The pads have Velcro which wraps around your backpack's shoulder straps. If your shoulder straps have a daisy chain (like our straps) you can put the Velcro through the daisy chain to keep them in position. Otherwise use a safety pin so they don't slide up or down the strap.

  • All Zpacks gear has a two year limited warranty against defects in materials or workmanship. Please see our return / warranty policy.
  • Made in the USA.

Dimensions: 2.5" x 6.5" (6.5 cm x 16.5 cm)

3.1 oz/sqyd Dyneema® Composite Fabric Hybrid

This material is made from the same 1.6 oz/sqyd DCF material as seen above on the inside, with a protective layer of 50 denier polyester on the outside. The outer layer gives it more strength, and abrasion resistance, prevents fraying, and gives it a nice solid color. 

Tensile Strength:
 245 lb/in (2150 N/5cm)

Puncture Strength: 
7.3 lb (32 N)

Water Resistance:
 >20,000 mmH₂O

Made in the USA.



5.3 oz/sqyd 3D Spacer Mesh

This mesh has a three dimensional structure which allows airflow and adds cushioning. It has a tricot backing so you can't see clear through the holes. We use it on the underside of our backpack's shoulder straps and belts to absorb sweat, add cushion, and add grip. Our 3D mesh weighs less than most other types.


Weight:
 5.3 oz/sqyd (180 g/m²)

Fit perfectly with my Granite Gear backpack

Used them on my first solo Joshua Tree backpacking trip this New Years eve where I needed to carry 5L of water. I didn`t need to stop to re-adjust my pack for shoulder comfort once. And at 0.8 ounce it isn`t a deal breaker for sure. A very simple and clever idea for those heavier than usual loads or to compensate for a poor fitting/incorrectly adjusted pack.

Work OK

I placed them as high a possible. But after some time they move a bit down during usage....
