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.

5.3 oz/sqyd 3D Spacer Mesh

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.

Helpful shoulder padding
These shoulder pads are easy to install and they stay in place, even when taking the pack off or putting it on. A bit on the pricey side but because they helped me tolerate a heavy load better they help are well worth it.
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.
I placed them as high a possible. But after some time they move a bit down during usage....
Excellent, one the first hike immediately noticed that the pack was more comfortable with these pads helping to hike longer.
Great for comfort
Good fit good product good service
