Pair of Shoulder Strap Pads
Excellent, Immediately noticed that the pack was more comfortable with these pads helping to hike longer.
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.
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.

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.

New shoulder pads
They fit my Osprey pack straps, but have not been on a hike to try them out , looking for my next long hiking trip, sure they will helpful for my comfort while hiking
Worth the buy
I really like the shoulder pads. They don’t slip and my shoulders don’t hurt anymore when I hike.
works on my UL Osprey Levity
After 1000 miles of pain on collarbones & hipbones on the AT using my Osprey Levity 60 with around 30# pack weight, I am finally pain free. Fastening these on the shoulder straps and hip belt on both sides added some desperately needed padding. I no longer have to use rock tape continuously to keep the bones happy. I have added double-sided extra-sticky velcro to hold them in position on the narrow shoulder straps. Zero pain now. Hope they last, I have already put 200 miles on them. The pads I added on the hip wings also took care of the second problem I had. After losing about 15 pounds, I no longer had any adjustment left on the hip belt. With the addition of the pads, I gained about 2 inches of adjustment again. You saved me from having to emergency purchase a new pack, although a new one is certainly in my future.
Excellent addition to an excellent pack
I broke my clavicle year ago but was left with an uncomfortable bump. I was concerned my backpacking days were over. No need for concern with these pads. They move well with the pack and do not make the pack unstable in any way (my concern). I highly recommend this addition if you lack "natural padding" on your shoulders. Would definitely buy again.
Great replacement part.
