Pair of Shoulder Strap Pads
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
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)
Thickness: About 3/32" (2.5 mm)
These offered the extra cushion needed for pack that did not offer enough padding on the shoulder straps. Great lightweight add to pack
Nice, light-weight, quickly adjustable / position where needed. If you need a little extra cushion these work very well. Happy Trails... To You...
I got these pads to supplement my Arcblast backpack because I had issues with my shoulders hurting carrying heavy end pack loads on the AT. On a thru hike of the New England Trail this year, they worked great. My pack was packed with same weight, etc. just as before. I was very comfortable and had none of the same shoulder issues as on the AT hike.
