How do you wear your Imago?
I was wondering how Imago owners wear this bag. It appears to be a shoulder bag but I wonder if it's mostly worn on the side or over the head. I also wonder about the waist strap and how well that works. I'm interested in this bag but I dislike bags that bounce around alot. I might try this bag to store stuff as I walk the dog so comfort is important. I sometimes train my dog on walks to the park and for that I need both hands free to give signals.
I use it as my bicycle bag
My Imago's main payload is a brain cell with my Macbook. I slip the Imago over my head so the strap hangs on my left shoulder and the bag sits on my right lower-back. I then buckle up the waist strap, get on my bicycle and ride a few miles to work. I have been doing this every day for about 3 months now. The bag stays without bouncing and shifting around. I am happy with it.
Specifically, I like two things about this solution.
1. Backpacks make my back sweat a lot while biking. I don't have that problem with Imago because it sort of rests on my right lower back, or upper butt, I guess!
2. I stick my iPhone in the side pocket of Imago (which is well lined to avoid scratches), and wear the ear buds while I ride. It allows me to listen to music, while letting me answer phone calls handsfree.
I still would like to have a pocket for my iPhone on the shoulder strap, though. Although what I described above works well for receiving calls, I still have to stop and spend more time than necessary, to pick up the phone from the Imago side pocket and make a call. I guess this wouldn't be a problem if the darn iPhone would do voice dial!
