    I have 2 fanny packs, one from eddie bauer, one from cabelas with the web shoulder straps, you can put alot of stuff in them but I find that once you go above about 3lbs the weight becomes uncomfortable. OK for some snacks, lunch, and necessaries, much more than that I prefer a conventional day pack even if it is hotter on the back.

    I have been using an Arcteryx Q-10 for many years, and like it. I got mine on sale at Campmor. I also have a an old Mountainsmith that I use mostly when biking and skiing that rides well and has held up well.

    I have the mountainsmith boundry backpack and the top lid is a great daypack. It has the thick waist strap like most fannypacks and it tucks inside a pocket when used as my top lid. It also has a zipper pouch with a clear cover for map use. I used it slacking several times and also as a daypack. My brother had once stitched a waist band on a top cover so he could use it for slacking, if your backpack has a removable top cover this could be a nice option for you.

    I was up at Mountain Crossings and talked to Alpine. He has this and liked it so I bought one with the straps too. I'll be going up Tray Mountain tomorrow so I'll let everyone know how it goes...

    I have a Mountainsmith, which is larger than the Go-Lite that I also use. I refer to them as lumbar packs.

    I used a Mountain Smith butt pack as my backpack through NJ/NY/CT some years back. I didn't like it. I found all the weight on my waist really annoying. I switch back over to my bookbag.

    Not really all that comfortable or helpful to me. I have tried a few over the years mainly for my water bottle.

    I went up Tray mountain today and found that the pack works great. With the shoulder straps and the adjustment straps you can pull the pack tight to your back so it feel pretty good.
