I like to shoot with just a tank top over the summer as it gets too hot to wear anything more. What's the best recoil pad to use that would be least abrasive to your skin? My thought is that it would need to be more slick versus rubbery (like a Kick-eez) so that there's no rub. Thank you for any suggestions.

I have struggled with over heat exhaustion in the past while shooting. I tried the lightest shirts and short and couldn't stay cool.

I tried the Under Armour Compression HeatGear and holy cow did it make a difference.

Seems counterintuitive to wear long sleeves, but I won't shoot in hot weather without it now.

Getting back to your question about a recoil pad: My answer is Kick-Eeze.

Good luck and break them all!

Actually if you look at Arabs that travel in the desert none of them are wearing short sleeves. The sun shining directly on your skin can suck the moisture out of your body pretty quick.

When I was an apprentice years ago the journeymen always wore long sleeves. I thought they were just crazy old men until I asked why and I tried it. The other option is move to Calif. where the weather is always perfect.

My daughter also likes to shoot in a tank top. He gun has a kickeez pad on it but she also wears one of these. Takes her a few seconds to put on/off.

I shoot all summer long at the Silver Dollar in high heat and humidity. I wear thin, long sleeve microfiber tees and they work great. We have a dept store chain in Florida called Beall’s that sells a brand called Reel Legends. I find the “Keep It Cool” version works the best.

If you like shooting in a tank top . What pad have you been using, that you like.
If you are having trouble with your current pad , then you dont like shooting in a tank top!
Many like the moisture wicking shirts, I dont, it would need to be tight to stop wrinkles and slippage.

There used to be a shooter in SE Mich that shot without a shirt in a mesh vest, he took the recoil pads off his gun, just the wood. We called him Booker T. Dummy. He was one hell of a shooter.

We had 1 guy at our club that had this on every shotgun he owned. He also was one of those shooters that was brought up at a time when you missed you didn't eat. Just an incredible shooter.

Microcell pads. Not tacky at all and won’t grip your skin.
I was curious about the Microcell. Do you find a difference between the thinner ones versus the thickest? Looks like the thinner ones are covered in a “black leather” material and the 1.25” is a “black soft design” which looks more slick.

No difference that I’ve noticed. Ive never had the 32mm pad though. The 23mm is a close match to most factory pads.

Get a Microcell, they are really nice. I'm certain they'd be just fine on bare shoulders. Better than rubber...

Microcell Ultra-Light Recoil Pad

  • 15mm (.59") Thin
  • 80mm hole distance
  • 46mm (1.89") wide x 146mm (5.75") long
  • Weight 56g (1.97oz)
  • Black Leather Effect
  • Screws are not included


The pads are made in Italy by Cervellati. They are also the supplier to Beretta, Perazzi, Blaser, FN, and other firearm manufacturers. Recoil absorption is higher than the typical rubber pad, with no "bottom out" effect, and the lightweight will not affect the balance of the gun.

Fitting Tips: To grind the toe end of the pad, it is necessary to use a high-speed machine with a 400 grit sanding belt for finishing. The product does not melt, however, failing to use a fine sanding belt might damage the pad 's external appearance. Best results can be achieved by using a new and lubricated belt, and the stock should be gently drawn close to the belt.

The .59" pad is amazing! I ground it to fit my Browning XT and tested it against some light handicap rounds. I was shocked at how comfortable the pad was.almost no felt recoil at all and no pressure points despite its flat profile.
