I added the shoulder pads to a backpack with canvas straps and the pads work as hoped. I recommend them.
I don't always need a shoulder pad with my canvas camera bag, but when it's nicely packed, I want to be able to sling it cross-body and walk around without feeling the shoulder pad edge dig into the side of my neck. This one wins on all fronts: it snaps on easily, wide footprint with neck curve design and grippy bottom means it stays firmly on the shoulder, and it distributes the weight nicely. I love it!
I love these shoulder pads. I play guitar and with my favorite guitar strap I was battling the dreaded "neck dive" where the gravity pulls the guitar neck down making it a little bit of a battle to hold upright properly. Not only did the shoulder pad stop the neck dive, it's super comfortable and I can play for hours. I leave the pad just barely visible from the front as it holds really well mostly on the back side of my shoulder--a very comfortable position with the guitar (versus being draped over my shoulder like you would with a bag). I loved it so much I bought a second for my other guitar. Great craftsmanship too--makes my guitar strap seem much nicer.
What is the difference between a Simple Strap and a Suspensions Strap
The Simple Strap is all nylon, no shoulder pad included. The Suspension Strap has its own built-in shoulder pad which has a soft grippy underside that stays on your shoulder.
Can I use your Straps with a third party bag or case?
No problem. So long as bag or case has hardware for the strap to attache, it will work.
Can I use your Shoulder Pads with a third party strap?
Yes. The Shoulder Pads can be used with any strap 1.5" - 2".
