$17 Canadian with shipping. Not bad. Have you tried those and the Timbuk2 strap pads?

I have tried the strap pad from Timbuk2. My two cents say they suck. The Pad slides around, to where you don't need it...

Easily cured by stitching it to the strap, but my bag serves double duty of walking in addition to riding. Whats comfortable for one is not for the other.

No pad here.

Hmm. So I have 2 responses of "neither." Since I haven't had big problems without a pad, I guess I'll just continue to go sans-a-pad.

No, but I don't have a Timbuk2 bag. I use the loops for keys, U-lock, etc.

Good luck. It slides around a little, but that's with keys, U-lock, whatever pulling it down.
