EPGear POD-PAD-BK overview

  • 1Description

The black Pod Pad Tripod Shoulder Cushion from Essential Photo Gear is a unique shoulder pad designed to fit most large tripods such as the Gitzo Systematic Series. The easy-to-install pad provides a layer of non-collapsing neoprene between the tripod base and the user's shoulder—making the tripod easier to carry in the field. The durable, tear-proof cordura nylon construction protects the pad from the most rigorous use and its water resistant design permits use in the rain or the surf.

The Pod Pad drapes over the top of the tripod without obstructing the baseplate or the attached head. Then each side of the pad attaches to an individual leg using an integrated hook-and-loop strap—a design that allows the tripod to be used as normal without interference.

    EPGear POD-PAD-BK reviews

    Pod Pad Tripod Shoulder Cushion (Black) is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Major design flaw This is a great idea, and mostly better than my home-grown solutions. But, whomever designed this didn't consider that tripod legs are vertical, not horizontal. The Velcro straps at the bottom should extend from the side in order to wrap around the tripod legs. Instead they extend down (see pics). So, you must twist them, wrap them around the leg, and then hope there is enough strap left to secure. This is a TERRIBLE design. I used some of my own Velcro straps to hold this to the legs. But, for $30, I shouldn't need to do that.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok, could stay in place better, and be a little softer. Better than nothing, slips a lot, not as padded as I had hopped, was using socks and duct tape, not sure which works better.
