        Bought this to put on strap of holster case that holds my t3i. Well made pad with velcro flap for easy attachment. Pad is thick and big enough to provide good padding but not overdone. Only negative is I wish it were available in black to match the color of most cameras, straps, and bags.

          Comments about National Geographic A7300 Africa Series Padded Shoulder Pad (Dark Brown):

          I am using this on a Kata messenger bag. The strap is wide but has no padding, and since it is permanently attached, I had to find a pad that could be wrapped around the strap, not one that slides up over one end like most. This fits the bill. I wish they had a black one.

          Stiff, but great when broken in

          By Matt

          from Michigan

          Comments about National Geographic A7300 Africa Series Padded Shoulder Pad (Dark Brown):

          The reviews that mention how stuff this is are accurate. The trick is to roll it up and break it in like you would a baseball or hockey glove. Roll it both ways, sit on it. Repeat until it holds a curved shape for your shoulder. Once you do that, this strap is quite comfortable.

          My messenger camera pack with two good sized lenses and sub gear on board was a bit of a burden to carry on a long hike because of the narrow lightly padded shoulder strap digging in, however with the addition of the National Geo velcro-on strap all the discomfort is alleviated. I'm impressed with the structural integrity and the designed versatility the strap offers as it easily transfers to other straps that need a bit of cushion. I would definately recommend this product to anyone who walks a ways to get that great shot.

              My shoulder bag has a fixed 1 3/8 in (3.5cm) strap that was too painful when the bag is loaded with water bottle, binoculars, camera, and iPad.
              The A7300 Shoulder Pad solved the problem and will wrap around a strap up to 2in (5cm) wide very securely with strong velcro. I keep the pad from sliding along the strap with some double stick tape.

              Bought this strap for my canvas messenger bag which I converted to a camera messenger bag. Great accessory that'll fit most padless straps. the only negative thing I have to say about this is that it's a little stiff and doesn't mold to my shoulder as much as I would like, but I'm sure it'll get better as I break it in.

              I usually carry a backpack, but was not feasible on this trip. Slipped this shoulder pad over another bag I had, and it made it so much more comfortable with all my gear! Plus, I was not walking around Paris, France with a camera bag that looked like a camera bag! Nice!

                  The pad works great! I usually carry my laptop around in a messenger bag with a basic fabric strap. The pad helps distribute the weight and significantly reduces shoulder pain. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is that it does slide a little bit.

                    I had purchased the NG Earth Explorer bag several years ago and was generally very pleased with it, EXCEPT that the strap was uncomfortable and my shoulders got tired using it pretty quickly. I soon stopped using that bag at all for cameras and began simply using it as a book bag. But now, with this new padded cover, I love my Explorer bag again! My only beef, and it is nothing major, is that the look and feel of the pad really is designed to match National Geo's Africa series of bags, and it does look a little out of place on the Explorer series.

                          I use this strap with my NG A2550 bag. With DSLR, grip, 2 lenses and laptop, this shoulder pad really lightens the load on my shoulders. With just the camera and an attached lens, it isn't necessary and just gets in the way. Move it down the shoulder strap and it is out of the way.

                            I got this shoulder strap at the trade fair photkina in cologne (for free) and think it is the best I ever used. It gives the impression the weight of the bags is only half! I just love it!!
