Wearing a pack at first while riding can seem a bit odd.. might throw off your balance or just feel a little constricting.
However, you get used to it.. in fact you start to love it.. IT keeps you warmer.. protects your spine and for the most part… it just feels like wearing a seatbelt.
Most operations ask guests to gear “Avi” gear or they provide packs for guests to wear..
Its just part of the deal.. and think its a good one.
Safety is no accident. Right?
