IceVents Universal Shoulder Pad Compatibility Guide: Backpacks

IceVents Shoulder Pads Backpack Compatibility Guide

IceVents Shoulder Pads, our universal shoulder pads with built in cord management, are the result of a synergistic collaboration between Qore Performance and @GarandThumb

IceVents boast a number of impressive features revolutionizing load carrying capacity: lightweight (the weight of a first class letter), ideal load distribution (IceVents use Stimulite, an impact-absorbing hexagonal honeycomb TPE), superior ventilation, and most relevant to this post - Universal Backpack Compatibility.

What follows is a running list of backpacks that are compatible with IceVents Shoulder Pads.  Don't see your backpack?  No worries.  IceVents fit any backpack.
