Trouble with Eberlestock pack

I had my wife sew a strap I cut off an old sleeping bag across the front from to both shoulder straps with the clip in the middle. This way I could adjust it to hold the bag closer to my back. The straps were about lower arm pit high. This made the pack perfectly comfortable for me and kept the shoulder straps from pulling to the outside of my chest.

I have the J4 & I have to tell you I to bought the zip in duffel. I have to say though on my next hunt it will be on but just half full. It is tough as nails but I have found out 1/3 of what I took was not used. We all love gear but you realy have to decide what you realy need.
