Backpack hurts

I bought the Echo ms100 a couple of weeks ago but it's rained so much I haven't had a chance to use it yet. Yesterday, I filled it with water to check calibration and such and the straps cut into my shoulders. Do you guys use any pads, and where can I get some. Also, do you use a chemical vest? I've seen these items in the Chapps catalog but, was wondering what everyone else is using?

A back packs going to cut into your shoulders without extra padding and a full load. The worse part is if you forget and bend over for one reason or another and the mix runs down your neck and back. Yes, wear a vest if you can stand the heat.
