Särmä TST Sling pad
A proper multifunctional strap pad, fits any slings or shoulder straps up to 40 mm in width. Recommended for backpacks, weapon slings and chest rig shoulder straps. Functions with pretty much any common strap you can find.
Single units. If you want these for a backpack, buy two.
- Dimensions 30 x 6,5 cm. Weight approx. 35 g
- Designed for 40 mm (1,75") wide webbing straps
- Three horizontal webbing channels
- Two hook-and-loop fasteners
- Cellfoam padding
- NIR compliant materials
Two straps of hook-and-loop on both ends of the pad are used to secure the pad to prevent that horribly annoying sliding around. The hook-and-loop straps can be anchored through D-rings or other buckles or more commonly any vertically sewn webbing loops, as pictured.
The pad fits straps up to 40 mm wide, the cross pieces are wide enough for 25 mm (1") side release buckles to slide through.
Finnish MILSPEC materials
These are made from a Cordura-cellfoam-polyester laminate, the same material is used to make Finnish army backpack shoulder straps. All materials including the webbing and Velcro hook-and-loop are NIR compliant.

1. They fit without sliding around.
2. Probably bearproof.
1. Padding may as well not be there at all. Feels like cardboard or plastic rather than foam.
2. The edges are very hard and will dig into your collarbone if you're not wearing thick clothing or a plate carrier.
3. Very stiff, and thus the collarbone digging. Doesn't like to bend so all the weight from the pack gets concentrated on the two edges. Maybe it'll loosen up with further use.
All in all better than plain web straps, but I'm still looking to get something else to replace them.
EDIT: Replacement found. Hazard 4 "Deluxe Shoulder Strap Pads." Cost the same, fit fine. Much more comfy.

They reminded me (slightly) of ALICE pack straps, but obviously more comfortable.
Fitting was simple and the quality exceptional - again really reasonable for what you get.

+Pysyvät jämäkästi hihnassa paikallaan eli eivät "klappaa"
+Istuvat ainakin omille raameilleni todella hyvin
+Riittävän leveät ja jakavat siten repun painon tasaisesti
+Useimmiten vastaavat pehmusteet ovat jotain sentin paksuisia vaahtomuovimöhköjä joiden pehmustuskyky kuitenkin huono. Tässä toteutuu matala, litteä profiili joka ei esim. haittaa aseen käyttämistä merkittävästi, mutta jakaa silti repun / vast. painon mukavasti. Tästä ehdottoman iso plussa!
