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 / 12" x 2.5". Weight approx. 35 g / 12 oz.
  • 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-cell foam-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.

Sewn in Estonia

These are sewn for us by Savotta in Estonia. Savotta is the contractor for all Finnish army tents and load-bearing equipment, this gear is made exactly to Finnish military spec.

This review is written in the context of being worn on the DP-10.

The pros:
1. They fit without sliding around.
2. Probably bearproof.

The cons:

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.

Savotan jääkäri s reppua varten hommasin ja siinä toimii erittäin hyvin, reppu ei enää valu alaselkään vaan pysyy ryhdikkäästi oikealla paikallaan. Pehmusteet eivät hirveästi pehmusta mutta pitävät hyvin ja repun kantaminen on huomattavasti miellyttävämpä oli kuormaa vähän tai paljon.

Yeah they are a bit stiff, but that's why you need to load 56 cans of beans into your rucksack and break them in - I am certain they'll be fine after a bit of use.
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.

Yllättävän hyvä. Käytän näitä Savotan minijääkärin / jääkäri S-repun kanssa ja ylittivät odotukseni.
+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!

I don't recommend buying these. They don't get better with age/use. I've used these every day for over 2 months on a Jakaari S pack and often with a lot of weight added to try and break them in.. If anything they've become more uncomfortable as time has gone on. The 'padding' is incredibly thin, firm and doesn't soften. It folds instead so the surface against your shoulder becomes crinkled and the fabric cover ruffles creating lines of pressure rubbing against the skin.

The pads are also incredibly stiff 'sideways' so the outer fabric band sewn over the edges remains extremely stiff and firm which a) rubs your shoulders and b) pokes into your neck and the upper part of your arm if you reach across to use a hydration tube or are moving your arms whilst balancing yourself across uneven ground. The fabric edging is also rough/hard either side of the stitching because the stiching pinches the pad in slightly (as you'd expect as a consequence of sewing) which means the parts either side of the stitching are rasied slightly and also rubs your skin.

Further, the crossing molle strap things which you thread the backpack straps through are quite tight. That would be good if the padding had any thickness or give at all but it doesn't, so what happens is the strap causes the pad to 'round' slightly to fit the straps through, meaning the pads cause greater pressure on your shoulders than the plain straps themselves. this is made worse the more things you attach to the molle, like perhaps threading some velcro tabs to hold a hydration tube (not even the tube threaded through the molle, it would be too tight for that, just some thing velcro tabs threaded is enough to create more pressure).

I've removed mine and the plain webbing straps on the Jakaari S are so much more comfortable without these pads.

The only thing these pads did do was reduce the straps sliding outwards on the shoulder when wearing slick synthetic materials - but a sternum strap would do a better job at that and without the discomfort of these pads.

Avoid!
