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, 2.92 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)

2.92 oz/sqyd Dyneema Composite Fabric Hybrid


This material is made from the same 1.43 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)

Thickness:
 About 3/32" (2.5 mm)

Ideal

These are just great, I have a separated shoulder with funky bone protrusions that wear on all straps. These really-really help!

Functional shoulder strap pads

Just got back from a trip using the shoulder strap pads on my inadequate North Face shoulder straps. They stayed put well and made all of the difference in the world between an uncomfortable and a useable backpack. Also they arrived very quickly with a reasonable shipping charge. So glad to have found these pads—no one else makes them as far as I can tell—if you’re trying not to shop on amazon.

Does the job

Needed some padding for a day pack because the rifle sling was digging into my shoulder. These pads fit perfectly, are easy to install, and really help with keeping the shoulder from getting sore

Shoulder Strap Pads

Excellent addition to our Zpacks backpacks. Make the packs more comfortable with heavy loads.

Definite improvement but...

They are very well made and easy to add to your pack straps. For me (I'm 6'2" tall and 240lb) the pads could be longer to cover more of my shoulder. The pads rotate when putting the pack on but are easily straighten out and then stay in place. I'm using them on my camera backpack the weight 35lb and the factory straps are not padded well enough for that much weigh. I would make these pads longer and with a sleeve that slide over the strap and can be attached in a way that they don't rotate. I was not able to find such a pad when I was shopping.
