I apologize in advance for the really stupid question, but I've never used the waist strap on either my Imago or my ID. However, I will be going hiking in the mountains soon (short hikes on well-cleared trails), and I'd like to use my Imago as my camera bag. I've switched the Absolute strap from my ID to my Imago, so that will help. And I re-attached the waist straps that I took off when I first received the Imago a few months ago. I plan to wear the Imago across my chest, and I can see that whilst hiking, I will definitely want the extra stability that the waist strap offers.
But when I tried the Imago on today with the waist strap, I discovered that I have to cinch the shoulder strap very, very short, and carry the Imago much higher on my body than I normally do, to the point where it felt sort of awkward. Even then the waist straps still were going more around my hips than my waist. So I wondered if anyone could share what the best way is to carry an Imago when using the waist strap.
Thanks so much!
