Got this bag to replace the ultralight daypack that I used to carry in my large backpack. So, wanted this for short day jaunts when in the alpine. It's okay. You obviously feel anything/everything that's at all pokey through the back, and it's a bit awkward feeling with any weight in it at all. Creeps up a bit. I found I wanted to keep my thumbs in front straps when I had a camera and jacket in the back to help it ride my snugly.
