I've tried many different things, including the one above, and I'm not a fan of it. The issue I found is that little pad slides around, particularly when you are popping the canoe up on your back with a pack on. The sharp sides of the contour also dig into my trapezius muscle. YMMV there.

I've also tried the suspension system type yoke pads with an aluminum frame and padded shoulder support, but they tend to get caught on backpacks when loading and unloading. They are quite comfy with no pack though.

Then I found this:

By far the most comfortable with a pack on and doesn't get caught or shift. You glue it to a flat yoke with contact cement. Weighs nothing.
