This is a great addition to your cover. I've added about 20 ft of 550 under the strap, so having a little extra storage space is nice. It's easy to load this thing and the cover up with so much stuff you might as well take a daypack, so police yourself. The strap itself does what it's advertised to do: it pads the shoulder strap. It does make a difference if you're out humping it all day and the additional webbing is handy for attaching gloves and stuff but again, police yourself. All in all, I'm very happy with it and would certainly recommend and would buy again.
Padded strap wrap
What a way to make a great product better! My mother canteen carrier is one of my favorite pieces of kit, and now it's better. With just a little bit of padding I can tell this will really add to the comfort of this product. It goes with out saying that the quality is top notch on everything you buy from CLS. The only thing better than their quality is the customer service. Within two minutes of placing my order the owner called me to ask a question. He wanted to be sure he had my order right and we even had some time to chat. That's service!! I would safely say any product they make is top quality and worth every penny. I'm certainly not done buying yet.
