      Comments about SP20 Shoulder Pad (Tan):

      Sometimes small things make big differences and this is so with the Billingham shoulder pad. It makes the bag much more comfortable on the shoulder. The initital pad had a flaw in one of the snaps and as usuall B&H came through with a replacement no questions asked. I always prefer to deal with B&H

        Comments about SP20 Shoulder Pad (Black):

        I bought this for my hadley pro. I thought it would be thicker and more padded, but I kind of prefer its low profile look. Keeps the shoulder strap in place on my shoulder better than without. Bhphoto was cheapest I could find and still a little expensive

          Comments about SP20 Shoulder Pad (Black):

          I purchased the black Billingham Hadley Pro and decided to pick up the leather strap as well. It is built with the same quality as the bag itself, and is very comfortable.

          The picture doesn't do justice to the padding on the underside of the leather. It is nice foam rubber padding that sits nicely on my shoulder. The buttons hold it into place perfectly (doesn't slide around).

          I think that having the padded shoulder pad is required for a Billingham bag purchase.

            Comments about SP20 Shoulder Pad (Black):

            This is a great aftermarket pad for various messenger bags. Currently I'm using it with a custom Timbuk2 laptop messenger bag, in faux brown leather, and in compliments the bag very well. I considered going with the brown pad instead of the black, but since the Timbuk2 strap is black, went with the black pad, and am glad that I did. The pad is wide, conforms immediately to the shoulder without a breakin period, is very soft on the shoulder & distributes the weight of a fully loaded (laptop, 5DMkII, 28-75, 50, 100-400, charger, etc) very well. The only thing that I would like to see on the pad is a bit better locking mechanism. If one catches the snap-locks on something, then they can come out. I'm going to put a bit of blue locktite on them, and that issue should be solved. Otherwise, despite the slightly high price, this pad is perfect.

            At first was going to take a star off for the very high price...after using it for several months on several messenger bags it earns the full 5 stars...with this your messenger bag will never ever slide off your shoulder again...and looks great too...you'll forget about the price quickly...it's a perfect size as well...

            Recommended accessory to go with your Billingham Bag. Very durable and well constructed. It keeps your bag strap from falling of your shoulder. Bad thing is that it is overprice.

                Makes the bag so much more comfortable to carry. Only drawback is the price, but it is well worth it.
