    Shoulder strap pad question

    Greetings... am musing a medium vs. large Cafe bag purchase and have a question about the pad... is the default pad as pictured with little nubs or is it similar to the Imago's pad, which is almost gel-like? I have an Imago, so I ask.

    (I did see the pictures, but I do know that one of the Imago's featured pictures had a different pad than what is currently on mine, purchased 12/08).

    Thanks in advance!

    I have a large cafe bag and manage to stuff it. Dang netbooks, now ya gotta take 'em everywhere. My strap's pad is not nubby, but is lightly textured neoprene-like stuff. Not exactly gel-like either. Maybe you can get a glimse on Maverick's review a couple of fora down. I did not opt for the absolute strap for this bag, but the strap it comes with does a very good job of distributing the weight--if I had a purse this heavy it would really be uncomfortable.


      Your mileage may vary (I did get these a while back), but on my Medium, it's nubby and on my large, it's Imago style.
