The Ultrasuede® Shoulder Strap Wrap is designed as an optional accessory
for our Small
Café Bags or any bag with a 1-1/2" webbing
Our two smaller sizes of Café Bag come standard with a
small, low-profile, molded plastic pad with a grippy underside. Some
customers found this plastic pad not cushy enough and the plastic
uncomfortable on bare summer shoulders, and they requested a softer, cushier
shoulder strap pad. Our Ultrasuede® Shoulder Strap Wrap is a
sophisticated response to this simple request.
It's made of ultrasoft
Ultrasuede® laminated to soft Ensolite foam. The Ultrasuede® Shoulder
Strap Wrap wraps around the shoulder strap and attaches back on itself
with hook and loop and snaps: it's easy to add it "after market,"
as they say. The Ensolite foam provides a tacky surface to keep the
webbing from slipping so the pad stays where you put it (the foam is not
exposed except to the strap webbing).
How to install the Ultrasuede® Shoulder Strap Wrap
Ensure the strap is 1-1/2" or 38 / 40 mm webbing — the Ultrasuede®
Shoulder Strap Wrap (USSW) won't work on 2" straps. To install the USSW
on your Café Bag or similar bag:
Slide the existing pad out of the way to one end of the strap or the other.
Simply wrap the USSW around the strap in the center of the length of the strap,
fastening the hook and loop and the snaps at either end of the pad. Make sure
the snaps end up on the top of the strap so the underside is free of
anything that might not feel so good against your shoulder. The pad will mold
to both your strap and your shoulder over time, but it should feel comfortable right away.
After you've used the USSW for a while, go ahead and cut off the old molded
plastic pad. Use a scissors to carefully snip the plastic without cutting the strap webbing.
