        Comments about SP40 Leather Shoulder Pad (Tan):

        Yes, I know it's pricey, but the photos of this shoulder pad do not do it justice. The padding is just right, and the quality is outstanding. There is enough grip on the padded side to keep the strap from falling off the shoulder, and while it's made of quality, durable materials, it isn't exceedingly heavy, nor bulky.

        I use this on my Billingham Hadley Pro bag. I initially wasn't going to pay the extra, but I purchased two AVEA 5 bags to add to the Hadley Pro, whenever I needed to carry more, and felt the shoulder pad would provide welcomed comfort, if I'd decided to use all the bags and fill them with stuff. I'm glad I didn't skimp.

            Good shoulder pad

            By Philo Willetts

            from Westerly, RI

            Comments about SP40 Leather Shoulder Pad (Tan):

            This is a good-quality shoulder pad for the 1 1/2inch Billingham shoulder straps. It's comfortable, fits on the shoulder strap with the right tension. Like every othe Billingham product, this looks good and promises to last a very long time.

            thick padding

            By Ryan

            from Columbia, SC

            Comments about SP40 Leather Shoulder Pad (Black):

            I like the sturdy construction and the thick padding. I think it should be included with the bag, as I wouldn't recommend buying the bag without it. It's especially important if the bag is full of heavy gear.

              Purchased to use with my Billingham camera bag. The strap on the bag without this had a tendency to slip off the shoulder. This Pad seems to cure that. As with all things Billingham, it is pricey but very high quality. Glad I bought it.

                Comments about SP40 Leather Shoulder Pad (Tan):

                I waited diligently for this shoulder pad to be restocked, and I'm glad I did. Like the Billingham Hadley Pro to which it is attached, the shoulder pad is impeccably made, without a single errant stitch. The padding is comfortable, and the underside of the pad has just the right amount of grip. The width is perfect, too; unlike shoulder pads on cheap duffel bags, this pad won't twist around on the strap. It makes the Hadley Pro an even better bag without detracting from its aesthetics -- in fact, it arguably makes the bag look better.

                The only problem with the shoulder strap is that it should have been included with the bag in the first place.

                Beautifully crafted, completes the look of the bag. Feels great on the shoulder esp with a full bag. Great grip. Arguably overpriced, but I think it's worth it.

                          I have two of these to go with two Billi bags. While I wish that Billingham would provide the pads with the bag purchase, I can say these are ideal in size and use (as well as looks).

                          These are also worthy to adapt to non Billi Bags as well if the width of the strap is 1.5" or narrower. On the Billi Bags, they look like they "belong" and provide a great level of comfort and as important reduced slippage of the strap on the shoulder.

                            Excellent craftsmanship and quality. Billingham uses the same high quality leather that is used on the Hadley bags. The padding on the back is very comfortable and thick. Unfortunately, this is a very expensive shoulder pad, but there is no sense deducting a star for that.

It also feels comfortable around my neck and across my chest when you need a more secure carry.I would certainly buy this again and recommend it to all.

                                      The perfect accessory for my Billingham bag. It buttons onto the shoulder strap and holds the strap in place on the shoulder. No slipping. I trust my equipment to this pad, and it has not let me down. Beautifully made. Disconnects in seconds if you don't want to use it.

                                      This shoulder pad is great. Very good addition to my (Khaki/Tan) Billingham Hadley Pro. The color match is perfect. The padding is thick and very comfortable. It's totally better than bare strap. With the pad, the bag even looks cooler and more complete. My only complaint is that one of the press studs pops open time to time and this is not something you'd expect from Billingham products, especially when you consider the amount you pay for it.
                                      Other than that, great pad and highly recommended.

                                          Does exactlty what it claims, excellent build quality, Pricey, but worth every penny. The only negative is that Billingham should include it with their bag, and bake it into the price.

                                              It's pretty comfortable but a little hard. Perhaps it needs some time to break in. Fits the Hadley Pro just right.

                                                    Very thick and nicely made. Stays put but also slides easily when you want it to, as in repositioning the bag.

                                                      This strap is of fine quality and all, I just don't understand why my $300 bag didn't come with it to begin with! Also, if your thinking you want it and it's in stock then you should jump on it. I waited over 6 months for mine to ship from backorder.

                                                      This model fits the Henley Pro.

                                                          I us it on all occassions with my Billinham bag. It fits perfectly, and does the job. I wish it would have been included when I purchased the bag.

                                                              I recently received a small Billingham Hadley bag as a gift, with only the canvas shoulder strap. I wanted to add a shoulder pad for greater comfort, and the Billingham Web site suggested the SP40. (Please note that the B&H site makes a different recommendation for this bag.)

                                                              This pad is both beautiful and comfortable, made from heavy leather that looks and smells like a fine saddle, and with a contoured foam pad for greater comfort. It snaps securely onto the Hadley's canvas strap, enhancing both its appearance and comfort. I highly recommend this as an add-on to your Billingham bag.
