hehe always fun just tossing your pack over your shoulder when folks are doing contortions. same with standing around with pack on while they are leaning against rocks and trees to rest. Smile and know you're more comfortable :)

OMG! What does Crocodile Dundee have in his ruck?! A couple of dead hookers?

My original definition of lightweight backpacking included not needing gymnastic maneuvers, aid from inanimate object (rocks, chairs, trees) or grunting and bellowing of any kind when putting on my pack.

Actually either the guy in the vid is pretty strong, or his pack is not THAT bad. I've seen worse! But it still makes me laugh that an educational video is needed.

I don't know about the dead hooker thing, but something about the shape of his pack, plus the volume does feel off to me. Really does have that "box-in-barton-fink" aura to it.
