My experience has been less than stellar with side of the pack scabbards. My current system is setup that way & I'm not super happy with it.
Can ride my ATV w/o having to remove my rifle or pack.
I can pull it from the scabbard w/o removing the pack. (Read Quick)
My rifle is ~10lbs, too much weight on one side of my pack.
Can throw you off balance while on rough terrain.
Seems to get caught on more things sticking out on the side, where, if it was in line with your head, I would tend to think it would be in a more "natural" place.
