If you are getting the velo backpack and plan on putting some weight in it, these straps are for you. I have stuffed my backpack to the brim and my shoulders have been comfortable. Nothing digging into my shoulders. The sternum strap also helps to center the weight by pulling the straps together. This makes the bottom of the straps pull closer to your back which in turn takes some of the weight of your shoulders. I don't know what the seat belt straps feel like but these particular straps have taken care of me. I've never had shoulder issues with straps and I've definitely stuffed this bag and made it heavy. I recommend these straps because they fulfill their function and then some.
