    5Amazingly padded!
    By NR Nightfox
    Bought this for my hubby. He has a small frame so he personally thinks it makes the strap too bulky so I have since put it onto a messenger bag that sadly came without any padding and I think it's amazing. It is super comfy and can handle a heavy weights.

    Pros.
    Super padded
    Good quality
    Velcro adhesive is strong (hence why it was still attached to the bag in the photo. It's a pain in the butt to remove)

    Cons
    Large (approx 10-12 inches long) which could be a pro depending on your size

    4Sturdy and Comfortable, though a bit Rigid.
    By DSS
    I was looking for a shoulder strap to attach to a heavy cross-body bag. I know the description is for a guitar strap, but a couple of reviewers mentioned it's great for bags as well. It looked comfortable. That's why I bought it.

    POSITIVES:

    - The strap does provide better comfort for an otherwise uncomfortable bag strap.
    - It's easy to put it on any strap thanks to the ability to open the flap at the top and secure it.
    - It seems very sturdy and well-made. Looks like it will last a long time.

    NEGATIVES:

    - This shoulder pad is surprisingly heavy.
    - Due to the material that helps it attach to a strap, it can make some noise as you move. It is most noticeable in a quiet room. It's not a deal-breaker, I was just surprised to hear it making noise.
    - It is not the most flexible shoulder pad I've ever experienced. It can be a bit stiff.

    OVERALL - I would recommend it for heavier bags, but I think I need to use it cross-shoulder more to recommend it for that purpose. I think the shoulder strap could have been a little more flexible to form to the area between the neck and shoulder, but if you use it just over one shoulder, it should be fine.

    5Good pad for shoulder bags/carry-on luggage
    By Greg
    One of those items that look at least as good as you expected when you open it up. Classy looking, it matches all my carry-on luggage straps, from Tumi to cotton duck. The gel pads allow the pad to "articulate" or bend easily so that you don't have a mass of heavy, unbendable gel in one place. The pads also decrease the weight that could be a problem with gel padding. The only criticism I have is that there is no non-slip surface, just a smooth fabric (exactly like a gel wrist pad for your mouse). So it is fine if you are wearing your strap cross-body but probably going to slide off if you are just wearing the strap on one shoulder. Can't wait to try this with an overloaded messenger bag!
