Any regrets on your load so far? Or does it feel just right? Or even light?
Load seems to be balance, but front load was not properly balanced. Came apart 2 times . I needed 1 more cord. I did manage to take one cord off back, so all is well.
l do feel front heavy though.
l covered a lot of ground in the rain. Great experience though.
