The newly engineered foam makes pad more durable and attractive than ever.

Helps a log with a heavy camera bag

This is my second shoulder pad since the foam in the first one started to deteriorate. I wouldn't use the camera bag without it. It just helps when carrying lots of lenses and a big camera.

Must have item

Have to use this for domke. I bought my domke 15yrs ago, and I also this pad at that moment. I bought a new one for replace old one. Must have item for the bag.


Totally worth it. Very Durable and functional.

I purchased this shoulder pad in March of 2014 (over 5 years ago as of this writing). I am a IT field technician and use this shoulder pad on my work bag. I carry this bag with me everywhere for 8 hours/day 5 days/week and it has held up remarkably well. When I first purchased the pad I thought it was a bit expensive for what it was but after 5 years and counting of great service i was proven wrong.



Walking around Manhattan, this product is a lifesaver - and a shoulder safer.

Amazing product

I have carried shoulder slung bags of various kinds weighing 2-10 lbs and have always had the same problems; a) the strap tends to slide down your shoulder b) strap digs into your shoulder. This product solves both problems nicely. First, the pad is wedge shaped, being very thick on one side and very thin on the other. This allows the strap to sit in a "level" manner on your tapper shoulder. Second, the dense, rubberized foam is soft yet firm. It grips your clothing and resists slipping while also distributing the load over a broad surface area. Its well constructed with strong velcro used in the attachment tabs. It fits the Domke strap on my Chronicle bag perfectly. I will likely purchase additional pads to go on other non-Domke bags.
