This sash has sewn-in padding for your shoulder. Plus, it's made with super-durable, 3 inch wide webbing. The strap's width and shoulder pad allow you to comfortably support the weight of a heavy bucket. It's adjustable up to 12 inches so that people with different length arms can adjust to their liking. It's rated for up to 35 lbs, but is tested at a much higher break-strength. This sash helps to reduce fatigue! Phenomenal quality! Made in USA.
