Weíll be tossing these up over the weekend. Two firmness levels, one thatís about right and one thatís just a little firmer.

Do you have any of the "sciency" stuff about what makes these great and how they differ from the generic Vdev or JM pad? If you need to send me a couple to beta test, I'll be happy to take one for the team. Dirty job, but somebody has to do it!

If it's on the same level as the Dark Wing or Koala, it will be a winner.

Itís an injection molded EVA foam that comes in two densities that Iíll call normal and a little firmer, when comparing things to other pads. Theyíre neither inherently better or worse, just different than what others offer. These arenít foam that has been cut, theyíre molded. That is better on one sense that the pads have a skin and wonít absorb moisture. The pads Tony uses though only absorb a small amount. Theyíre still a consumable item, but that will vary by user and how they install it. The Velcro is die cut to the back but is still an adhesive that may peel if youíre a super sweaty person. Not much can be done when tossing a flexible pad onto a hard surface, warming it up, making it wet, and then pushing on it all day. The same little tricks, a dab of super glue now and again may be needed.

The only disadvantage would be size, these are one size at the moment. Iím working out the kinks of a smaller flat pad and then perhaps a more traditional doorstop shaped pad. This one covers most of the bases and works kinda how I think a pad can be optimally shaped but still ambi.

Iíve got the placeholder ready and a few of you have already found it.

Details and images are coming. Thus far all the reviews from T&E users have been what I hoped for, theyíre solid outta the box and appear like a finished product. More details to come. One thing to note, orders with Dark Wings and pads ship as soon as I can, orders with holsters and other accessories ship when everything is completed.

Do the pads ship with the loop Velcro as well?

Not yet. Been waiting on a few shops to have loop back in stock in black so we can order them in strips.

Is McMaster Carr no bueno? I was looking at a couple options there for rehabbing a couple holsters.

Flat pads are up! (https://darkstargear.com/product/flatpad/)


These work for pouches, sheaths, and when you don't need a door stop in your pants.
