I needed a bit of padding for one of my barbells as I do Seated Calf Raises and using any reasonable amount of weight meant that the bar was digging into and bruising the tops of my legs just above the knees.
So I bought the 1" Barbell Pad from York. As with all York's gear (well, certainly the stuff I've bought), it's well made and sturdy. It fits snugly on my 5ft, 1" bar and I was able to put 100kg on without having any problems. In that past, I've been using pillows just above my knees but this pad does the job 101% better (and it stops my wife nagging me when I take them from her side of the bed).
The only downside is that I've found that you need to position it just right, with the opening at the top. Otherwise, they barbell has a tendency to roll a bit and slip out. But that's a minor point and as long as you keep the bar steady, it's no problem.
I've not squatted with it (I use an Olympic bar for that and don't have a problem with taking the weight unpadded) but I have also used it for Good Mornings and again found it very comfortable.
All in all, a good buy.

I have been using this Barbell Pad for a few days now and what a difference it makes, when doing squats i was getting fed up with my neck and shoulders aching every time i did a set of squats, it is very comfortable to use and does not allow the bar to move and more importantly it allows me to move onto heavier weights with no added discomfort so i can recommend this product good price and does the job

i bought this to use when doing squats with a bar and was quite dissapointed with the pad.
Firstly the pad comes in two seperate parts, the foam bit and the lether to hold it on. it would have been much easier if they were attached, however i dont know if others are like this and its not such a big problem. The main problem is that the pad is too small to wrap around a standard barbell. The foam wraps around about 3/4 of the bar which leaves the rest with no padding between you and the bar. You can twist it around a bit to get the foam bit but this is quite awkward to do with all that weight on your back.
Seeing that this pad does not even fit around the standard (not olympic) barbell it brings me to think whats the point of it. i am normally very happy with other york products and dont know why they went so wrong with this one.

Good product but easy room for improvements!

This is much thicker and better than the cheap £2 one I bought to begin with. The 2 inch thick pad provides support for your back/shoulders when squatting however the red fold around literally just folds around!

It is not connected/attached to the pad at all and I find it annoying to fit each time so I just use the black cushion bit.

Was not expecting much for the price but this turned out to be a great addition to my bench. I do agree with others about the velcro coming open if placed a certain way on your back but resolved this by using electrical tape around the foam insert then wrapping it in the original outer. Hasn't done it since.

Bought this to use with my spare barbell in my home gym and wasn't disappointed. It comes in two parts, the foam middle which is cut to easily place over the barbell and then the outer padding which is wrapped around this and held in place with Velcro. This is great because it means its easy and fast to remove if you are wanting to do dead lifts with your hands close together and then you can easily pop it back on to do squats. The pad is large enough to accommodate those with broad shoulders and is very comfortable. The outer padding is quite robust so it should last a long long time. A great and cheap addition to make squats more bearable.

This pad does not fit an olimpic bar, but for a standard bar it does the job just fine, the foam is a high density tube with one side cut through so you can slip it on your bar (and not thread it onto the bar from the end) and the cover is vinal so can be wiped clean from sweat/dirt it's little thin but it's only there to hold the foam in place.

The pad takes away a lot of the discomfort across the shoulders/traps and alowed me to put all my effort into good squats instead of being distracted by the discomfort.

I'm realy glad i bought this item as before i avoided doing squats but now I enjoy squats and I only wish I bought it sooner.

Rubbish compared to competitor products. Foam is too thin. Also foam is not attached to the sleeve so slips out when being fitted so a pain. Also a very tight fit so not simple to velcro on. I also have the same barbell pad made by We R which cost about £1 more but which is vastly superior
