Extremely adaptable and useful

Robust support for carrying heavy bags, and easily moved among straps. As a bonus, they also are very attractive and well-constructed.


Shoulder Pads

Worthy replacement

I had a very old - 2007 - bag where the old shoulder pad was leaving marks in my workshirt due to the rubber backing degrading. Ordered a replacement and velcroed it on. Works great.

Shoulder Pads

A very nice addition

Bought this as my current leather bag didn't come with one. It really makes carrying a heavier bag a lot easier and comfortable with this addition. The leather doesn't completely match but it's great if you consider that they were manufactured by two different companies. Love the rubber grip as well!

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".
