Product Highlights
  • High Abrasion Resistance/Soft Feel
  • Comfortably Carry Monopod on Shoulder

The Aqua Tech Monopod Wrap was designed to make carrying your monopod easy without inflicting discomfort to your shoulder. The outer fabric is made of a Polyamide material which has exceptionally high abrasion resistance and a soft feel. It also aerates when in contact with skin and will not hold water or perspiration which could lead to rashes or blisters. The inside surface is a rubber-like, high-quality neoprene 12mm closed-cell foam which is durable and provides superior adhesion to the monopod leg.

You will notice before applying the Wrap that it is shaped a little like your hand. The inside gripping surface is smaller than the outer surface so it naturally wraps around the pole. The fingers in this case are the three large hook Velcro tabs that adhere to anywhere on the outer fabric, so it can be secured tightly. The combination of the inside rubberized grip surface and the adjustable Velcro tabs will ensure that the Wrap will not cause irritation to the user by sliding down the pole.

Material Neoprene and Polyamide
Dimensions (LxWxH) 9.1 x 7 x 1" (23.2 x 17.8 x 2.5cm)
Weight 3.1 oz (87.9 g)

      Comments about AquaTech Monopod Wrap:

      I have a mono pod from Manfrotto and was looking for extra padding of some type. Decided to look on B&H's site where the AquaTech was listed, so I purchased one to see how it was made. It arrived today, and I really like that it locks itself in place and doesn't worm around the shaft of the mono pod. I may wind up adding some more bulk under the pad, but as is it's plenty to tote around a 300mm 2.8 lens.

      Comments about AquaTech Monopod Wrap:

      Tripod or Monopod wrap. The velco and construction are excellent just the padding is a bit thin. Though it is added support for sure, we went to a fabrice store and bought additional header to stuff around the monopod / tripod legs using the Aquatech product to hold it all in place. No slippage, works much better as there's no grinding of the carbon fiber legs in your shoulder blades. This is the second one we've purchased as one is not enough for a tripod.

        Comments about AquaTech Monopod Wrap:

        Great addition to my Benro A48F monopod especially when I'm carrying the Sigma 120-300mm 2.8. The only thing that may bother some people is that once you add this to a large diameter monopod then it makes gripping it a little harder if you have small hands. I also will be using this on my carbon fiber Manfrotto 055CXPRO3, since it does not come with any pads. It does however make it a little harder to close it completely but that has not been a real issue. It should also help on cold days. Really glad I purchased this.

          Before purchasing the AquaTech monopod wrap I was using my own homemade wrap made up of foam rubber and ducktape! This is functional and much more attractive. I've noticed a lot less chuckling on the sidelines now.

          Comments about AquaTech Monopod Wrap:

          Love this wrap! definitely a must for sports photog's lugging around the big glass. I use it while carrying a 600 f/4 and though it doesn't make the weight completely unnoticeable it's enough to keep my shoulder from dying while shooting football games. As other reviews have said it is a tad annoying how anything and everything velcro sticks to it, but not a big deal by any means.

            The product works well and improves the comfort of carring a momopod over the should with a farely big lens (Nikon 300mm f2.8). The velcro fasteners are excellent. The Wrap fits directly under the ball head on my momopod and unfortunately you still get the knobs of the ball head poking into your shoulder at times.

              Comments about AquaTech Monopod Wrap:

              So much better than the Canon foamish piece. Let me put it this way, its like going from a worn out matress with springs poing through, to a memory foam piece of heaven.

              My first assignment with this was the Indy 500 last May, and it was a LIFESAVER. That is a huge track, and I was slogging the 400 2.8 IS all over the place. Without that pad, my shoulder would have been a wreck.

              The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is that if you have rain gear with any kind of velcro, it will get caught on the pad, which can be annoying. Other than that solid.

                I bought this after getting tired of having a sore collar bone from lugging my gear up and down the sidelines at football games. The padding on my monopod is great for a grip, but is not very soft. I used it for the first time shooting a football game last week, and it made a world of difference. I wish I would have bought it a long time ago. The only disadvantage it has is that it is difficult to remove.

                Comments about AquaTech Monopod Wrap:

                The [$] Aqua Tech monopod pad makes it much more comfortable to sling a monopod with a 300mm or 400mm on the shoulder. The design does indeed take away the discomfort. Forget about the DIY "pipe insulation". It does not have the right amount of cushioning compared to the Aqua Tech wrap.

                  This is the first monopod wrap I've owned. It fits well and doesn't slid around. Helps to provide a cushion when slugging the camera and 400mm/2.8 lens on my shoulder. Only complaint is if your coat or gloves has a velcro it gets caught on the wrap.

                    OK, I've been shooting sports since I was in college in 1985. I've got most of Canon's long glass and I tried one of these from a tip from a buddy of mine. It was obvious even coming out of the box that it replaces any prior attempt to make a mono-pod cover. Anyone who spends long hours dragging a 400mm f/2.8, 600mm f/4, 800mm f/5.6 around will be instantly surprised at how much better your should will feel after a long day of shooting football, gold, or shooting nature photography. It's simply how they should have been designed in the first place! And, they are very inexpensive, in my opinion. I now have three of these, one for each mono-pod and they are fantastic...

                    There are two Lightware monopod pads in the trash can in my garage right now. A buddy of mine turned me on to these and they completely replace any need for competition out there for this type product. I've had Canon pads, Lightware, and even a few home-made jobs too. I hump a 600mm f/4 and 400 f/2.8 at football games and I'm 45 yrs. old. These pads really make a difference at the end of the day! They are super comfortable even at a dead run, bouncing on your shoulder, and they fit perfectly, due to the three heavy duty velcro straps. None of my prior pads ever fit right on a monopod with the rubber grip at the top--not this one!!! This is an Awesome product that will do very well for you!
