Carries nicely on the body. Unfortunately for myself though, due to injuries on lumbar and hip-socket. the edge of the lumbar pad it has... exerts some amt of pressure it pushes in with over in the area which presses on the back-side of my hipsocket. Don't notice the after-pain very much when it's just 45Lbs, but with 90Lbs it unfortunately aggravates the heck out of it. We'll see what happens, as this year I intended to begin to get these conditions worked on, most likely surgically. So just felt the need to share this insight for others whom might also have similar injuries to consider. I'd pre-emptively ordered the extra lumbar pad. But since the pad adds extra thickness, I'm going to try using it without the extra pad and see if this helps by having the pad not press-in to me as deeply back there. We'll see how it goes. Also had an instance where the bottom of the shoulder straps K-clip just so happened to pull-thru.. out of... it's slot it's shoved thru in the frame. I'm going to consider that incident a fluke, since it happened while I was trying to strap it on at ground level with the 90Lbs strapped to it. Must have just-so-happened to have one of the clips edges partially pointing into that slot before I attempted to put it all on? Definitely alarming to have the bottom of a shoulder strap pull thru like that though.
ALSO? If you walk with one at night in your neighborhood.. be sure to where a headlamp and go slower! Had an uneven sidewalk catch my shoes sole and couldn't get that leg lifted up and extended forward because the sole's toe edge got caught on that raised sidewalk crack, and the fwd momentum disallowed me to lift it up. So mid-fall I realized that if I tried to stop the fall with extended hands I'd really jack em up HARD on sidewalk concrete so tried to catch with hands and roll into it from one side of body meeting pavement first, on over to the other. A lot of painful things will go on if you fall with this device on. It's that much more gravity/inertia coming to a stop at the bottom of the fall. Also back of my head got banged up a bit because even though you strap it onto your waist, it can move upward off the hip crests a lil during a fall, also of course your head can whip back as well and make contact with the frame.
