Default Anyone add padding to your sling?

So have a rifle just a hair under 9 lbs, looking at getting a standard heavy duty 1.25" webbing sling. I was wondering how comfortable that would be on my shoulder on short to mid-length hikes hanging on my shoulder. Was wondering if I might need some padding. Do any of you add homemade padding to a sling that does not impede its functionality? Not sure If I want to purchase one of those padded slings or not. Curious if anyone had any home made padding tricks for their slings.

Thanks guys. I was asking this to one guy and he had a great answer, he said he usually hiked with a rucksack and light shirt with a standard webbing sling, he said if it gets uncomfortable you could always just ranger up and suck it up, I think I will take his advice. Those Vickers do look pretty comfortable though.

AutoZone and O'reilly have the padding for shoulder seatbelt. That might work.
