The Thick Pad harness can be used to replace the standard harness on most Eberlestock packs. Choose it if you prefer a little bit more plush padding vs. the more minimalist padding in our standard "Shooters Harness." Works on all packs with removable harness except those with mid-back kidney pads attached to the harness (i.e, its not recommended for J117, J79, V69/90, etc.).
I purchased the thick padded shoulder harness and large padded hip belt for my Eberlestock Gunslinger 2 pack to get the very most comfort for carrying my 19 pound rifle and heavy accessories. These products have enabled me to comfortably haul a lot more weight for those extra long distances while hunting. The stock hip belt and shoulder harness were sufficient but the larger padded products helped me for those longer treks while carrying large and heavier than usual supplies in my pack.
First off, just want to say what incredible customer service you provide! Thank you so much. I ordered the thick padded shoulder harness and wasnt sure it was the right one. Emailed you guys and you had asked for pictures ( which i didn’t see the email). Few weeks went by and i reached out again, finally sent the pictures, and received the correct harness.
Worth the money especially when you put some weight on the pack. I prefer the extra padding as I like comfort over the shooting harness.
