Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, not great Bought a new winter jacket that had been treated with DWR for waterproofing, my trusty Timbuk2 bag would slide off my shoulder every time - annoying and frustrating. Bought the Tough-Tek Strap Pad expecting it to be tacky to the touch after reading other reviews . . . it is not tacky or sticky to the touch, who would want that. Once it's attached to the strap, it does move around a little so sometimes you have to adjust it so it sits on your shoulder correctly. Also, it's not super "gripy", it does slide off my shoulder but not very easily. Overall, I expected it to have a little more grip then it actually does, but not bad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Initially I was skeptical about this Tough-Tek strap pad--it was bulky and expensive for my taste--but after taking my medium-sized Timbuk2 messenger bag with me on an overseas trip where I did a lot of walking with my Timbuk2 bag, I can say that this strap is a sound investment for your messenger bag. I was able to carry heavy loads without discomfort and the strap did not slip even when I wore my bag on one shoulder at times.So, if you have a Timbuk2 bag without a strap pad, I would definitely purchase one. I cannot comment on the other Timbuk2 straps, just the Tough-Tek strap because it was the only one I purchased. In short, a great investment!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Backward step (compared w older strap) I hate do this to a company i adore, but this strap is extremely disappointing. the no slip stuff works, but there is minimal padding offered by this pad over the naked strap. my older, simply ballistic strap which i bought almost 10 years ago for my older bag may be stiff, but it's thick padding helps mitigate any hot spots when carrying a heavy load. this new strap is IMHO, a huge step backwards and was a waste of my money. (unfortunately, my old strap is falling apart!) from pictures i've seen, it seems the new ballistic strap is "thin cushioning" too, but i haven't confirmed that in person nor gotten a response on the timbuk2 "discussion boards."

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not "sticky" enough I like the shoulder straps that are available with Timbuk2's bags, but I usually wear them over one shoulder so I am constantly dealing with dropping and sliding bags. When I ordered this most recent bag, I thought "wow, a rubberized strap. I am in luck." But alas, it does not seem to stay on my shoulder any better than a regular strap. I expected little rubber dots or strips but the bottom seems to be a coated (not rubbarized) mesh. Even running my hand over it, I do not get any sense of any friction or stickiness. A nice shoulder strap but definitely not non-slip.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A must-have! My birthday present from my husband this year was a custom bag with a Tough-Tek Strap Pad, and I'd gotten him a custom bag with a regular old strap pad last year. He loves his bag, but when he saw my strap pad, he couldn't stop talking about how much nicer it was than his. This strap pad is really versatile and easy to maneuver. It distributes the bag's weight really effectively, and is surprisingly sometimes best positioned over the chest rather than the shoulder (strange, right?). My only complaint is that it's a little bulky and I wish there were a way to lock it to a certain part of the strap so I didn't have to slide it around every time I put my bag on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I'd buy this bag again. In Flathead Co. MT. 15 -20 mile commute oneway in both 'urban' and semi-rural traffic. The spectrum of low-elevation mountain climate patterns. Very good bag for all those scenarios. Wld like waist strap to be wider. I'm having some wider webbing made up special to my needs to replace stap that comes with bag. The bag cover part that hits against the shoulder strap, on side from which straps drops from supporting shoulder in direction of shoulder blade. That portion of bag cover should be designed to TUCK between the strap and outside side of bag in order to provide for better water-tightness (i.e., to assure that no water/rain gets into the bag from that point.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Strap improves the overall experience So I've had my timbuk 2 messenger bag for at least 5 years before it occurred to me to try to get a strap pad. When I'm carrying a lot (which is most of the time) the strap was really digging into my shoulder. The strap has definitely improved the experience of carrying the bag. The only downside is that it's more difficult to adjust the length of the strap, which I guess I like to do a lot. Now i have to remove the strap pad. It adds another 5-10 seconds to the process. But overall, it's so nice to have the padding. I'm not sure why I waited so long. Not sure why it didn't come with the bag in the first place!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect size for the minimalist! This is the second bike seat pack I have purchased from Timbuk2, and I am as happy with this one as I was the first. If you are looking for a bag that carries a lot this is not the bag for you. If you are looking for a bag that will carry the essentials then I highly recommend. I don't like big, bulky bike bags when I ride and the size is perfect. It holds a tube, CO2 cartridge and adapter, tire changing tool, and I could probably squeeze my car key in there if I really wanted to. I actually like to carry two extra tubes, but don't want a bag big enough to carry both so I just carry the extra in my jersey pocket. The bag is well made, and looks great on the bike. I also like the color choices you offer. I ride a lot of bike and these are definitely my favorite bags.
