BTW- I'd appreciate it if you use my pics in the future to at least acknowledge where you get them from.
Too, that pic of my blower that you used was taken from much farther away from the pad (using the zoom feature on my camera) than that of the one of the Echo. In reality, it is actuallly pretty large and covers all the bearing points of the back frame against a person's back very well. The load distributing belt can also clearly be seen, and over half the weight of the load is resting on that very nicely padded belt, then distributed around the hip area.
