    I have a levys gig bag, that while being a great bag, the straps dig into my shoulders after carrying it for a while.

    Does anyone know where I can get pads that can be attached to backpack straps?

    Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks.

    I been everywhere, man...
    None. At all.
    I bogarted pads from one of my wife's gym bags to use with my double gig bag.

    You could probably find a set of pads on an old bag from a thrift store, or look into buying them new from a camping supply store.

    Go to an auto parts store and get the pads (with Velcro closures) that are put on seat belt shoulder harnesses to keep them from digging into your shoulder. Put one on each of the gig bag straps. For under ten bucks, the problem is solved.
