Backpack blower shoulder pads

Does anyone have experience with W.E. Capps - Pro-Tex Covered Shoulder Pads for backpack blowers? They are suppose to give the operator relief of the shoulders and back from fatigue from operation. Anyone that has experience with this please write.

i can see if your doing leaf clean up, you might need them, but for post mow the time you were it is soo low i dont think its worth it. Just take some foam rubber and tape it to the straps, thats all i use.

My backpack blowers have a waist belt, there's not much weight on the shoulder straps. The waist belt carries the load.
