    It works best to wear more like a satchel, but I've got one of these and like it quite well- http://www.recycledwaders.com/pages/...p_nooksack.asp

    Some people swear by these packs: !The Richardson Chest Fly Box Company Richardson Chest Fly Box Company - Built by Hand, Built to Order, Built to last a Lifetime... One Box at a Time
    I'm not 100% sure they're U.S. made any longer though. I guess you could call Richardson and ask. Even if they're not made here, that phone call will tell them there are still people like us aroiund who prefer domestically made products when price and quality allow.
    Personally and being the klutz that I am, I have to see my feet to wade safely.

    Ooh, forgot about those. I think they're super cool. Somebody really ought to post a video online demonstrating how they work.

    I mean, if they're good enough for George Harvey, Ed Shenk, and Joe Humphreys-
