Morning Gang, I'm the recently proud owner of a Kifaru E&E bag. It's funny how, when you wait for several weeks, a simple purchase can feel like Christmas when it arrives. So, I bought the optional X-ray straps based on what I've read here on the Forum about comfort. Now, being rather hesitant about cutting something I think I just paid 100$ and waited 6 weeks to get, I've been running around with just the basic 3inch webbing shoulder straps. And I've found that it's comfortable for me on my daily EDC, even some light day hiking. Even loaded up with 6 water bottles and some hiking munchies, it felt find after several hours. So what I'm wondering is how much weight those of you who switched to the straps are carrying in their packs, and dose anyone know a way of attaching the X-ray's with out having to cut the E&E's straps off. Thanks again!
