I did just that. Decided shoulder straps were probably overkill and found a belt from an ALICE pack -- padded and has attachment loops on both sides. Thanks!

I do like your ability to turn around and grab something out of your sled without disconnecting. I'm thinking my sled may be too big for that though. I have the larger jet sled 1 and I think it's...

Yes, the Sampson lake lean-to was nice, but what we called our "stream" made it a muddy, wet mess directly in front of the lean-to. Sad to hear that about South Lake.
