this was a big one for me because the one and only thing i found uncomfortable about my rickshaw bag was the big plastic attachment ring digging into my shoulder. granted, my left shoulder's been broken and dislocated and separated at various points, so it's a little sensitive anyway, but my point is that this completely rectifies that situation, particularly when the bag's really loaded down. bonus — more surface area for pin buttons and decorations! thanks for keeping local SF business alive!

It's a nice to have, it's not essential.
As long as you haven't over stuffed / weighed down your bag, the strap pad isn't needed as the bag strap isn't uncomfortable. If you do have lots of heavy stuff in your bag, then this will be very useful.

I bought this for my small Zero. I'm glad I did, one thing I wish is if there was a smaller option for the smaller bags. This seems a bit large. Other than that it works great when you are walking around the city for extended periods, great for keeping your shoulder comfortable.
