Cuffs - it looks to be reasonably well thought out if a bit on the heavy side for the volume

My first thought was that it looks like a corpsman's unit bag. I wouldn't want it for backpacking, but it would be useful short hikes or a camera bag (could hold a tripod nicely).

Its not hiking related in the use that I am looking for. It will be carried for short (3-5 miles) distances.

I carried a bag that I kept a bunch of smoke and a few frag grenades, some C-4, det cord, etc in. It had one strap. The purpose of the bag was to get that crap away from me when I was in proximity to enemy contact. It worked for that but it was a pain in the ass to carry any distance. Fortunately they made me President of the Army and I didn't have to carry all that shit. I'm not a fan of one strap bags. 3-5 miles can seem long with a one strap bag.

Looks too short for devil sticks and it'll never hold both clubs and diabolos at the same time.

looks about right for balls and (hacky) sacks

I like the top rapid opening double zipper feature. Can get to the booze bottle quicker w/o fiddling around after
rotating the pack from back to front.

Cuffs, you can get a used alice pack for less and have the advantage of twin shoulder straps if you need to carry anything heavy for a distance.
Plus you have more pockets

I guess I could/should have explained its purpose better.

It's for parading. Carrying beads to throw. Also carrying beer in cans.

I used a backpack. The problem came that when I needed to get out more beads out, they were do far at the bottom I had to stop and take the pack off to reach them.

I'm thinking this would slide around to the front easily to resupply and also carry a few beers in the small side pockets.

Ok, discuss.

Nice....withhold the important information. How bout one of those baby carrier thingies that moms use to carry the rug rat in front of her?

Oh yeah, you've got to get your share of the beads. How bout something on a belt around your waist that can be turned from back to front to back to front to back....etc.

Youre still not getting it. Im IN the parades. I have to carry dozens and dozens of beads to THROW. And carry some beers for personal consumption. The beads are quite heavy. I want to carry them on my back, not my front, not my waist.

LOL, so if you're in the parade you don't get to keep any beads? You have to throw all the beads you have to other women that are showing their boobs? Maybe you could make a friend that each of you could carry a backpack for the other person? That way you'd have easy access to beads and beer? ...or maybe use a big baloon attached to a cooler and have it floating next to you. OK, I guess I'm running low on great ideas.:angel:

how about a lumbar pack - loosen belt to slid it around so you can get to the stuff, slid it back into place and tighten to carry

The boobs are pretty much gone these days. They are mainly on Bourbon street and after 10pm. Most parades are not on Bourbon and anywheres from 10am to 7pm... And theres plenty of dudes that go to parades too... ;-)

I carried nearly 10 dozen beads for the Irish parade last weekend. I had to stash the other gross of beads with friends about 1/2 way. They take up huge amounts of space. a fanny pack just aint gonna cut it.

Why would so many guys go to parades if there are no boobs being flashed? I hope you understand that you've just trod on an old mans fantasy.

HOI that is what I was thinking. I have had one for 15+ years. Back when I was Rep Bitch, Patrick gave me one for helping newby thru hikers adjust their packs.

Many people have slack packed with it. When Kanga used it she said, "This is the most comfortable pack I have worn. It holds 17 #s.

The pack is so well designed that the only change made to it is water bottle (beer) holders.

I have the 5.11 Tactical Moab 10. Obviously not the same pack but it is designed by the same principle. I love it. I use it as a quick grab bag for going to see family for a day or maybe going on a day hike... Most of the time it's my SHTF bag that I keep my pistol and a few mags in as well as a first aid kit and some other essentials. I would recommend one of these if it's your style. The only thing I noticed about the sling arm packs is that if you carry too much weight, you really start to feel it... And by too much weight I mean, like 15lbs... but it is a nice simple type of pack that you could carry short term for sure.
