The Ultimate Combination of Comfort and Durability Our new design - the optimum combination of comfort, light weight and durability. The sling-like design of our pads flexes to adapt the load to your shoulders. Our new longer thicker pads completely cover the pad frame. The single bolt mount, when loosened, provides enough side-to-side adjustment to comfortably fit any shoulders. You would be amazed how much difference in comfort even a half inch of adjustment can make! Weighing in at only 12 ounces, our pads are the best value in portaging! Their durability is becoming legendary - outfitters have found that they get season after season of use and abuse without failure. In addition, the pads themselves are replaceable, so you can replace a damaged pad for far less than the cost of a new set. You can also order our new pads to replace your original pads for only $25! If you'd like wing nuts in place of the standard nuts, just say so when ordering - we'll include them for you.

Gen 2 Clamp-on Yoke Pads Is your yoke just too beautiful to drill? Are there times when you'd like to take your pads off and not leave a hole behind? If so, our new clamp-on pads are for you! Based on the same comfortable, yet bombproof design as our original pads, these pads offer many advantages over existing clamp-ons. There's no protruding hardware to tear your packs on. Also, all of the hardware is captive, so you can't lose any parts at the worst possible time. The clamp mechanism now fits on our standard pad - so the new clamp-on is also a bolt-on. Just remove the clamp and bolt it on. Imagine! Comfort, durability, lightness, and convenience - all in one pad design!
Sometimes the nylon straps of a backpack can make a slippery surface for yoke pads to sit on. Our new Grip Wraps solve that problem. Our grippy material gives your pads "bite", and go on & off easily with a velcro attachment.
