Too easy though right? Just cinch the straps down till it fits, cut & burn. Sure, but I've cinched them as far as they will go and its not enough. I've had to tighten them to the point where the farthest back gear loops are useless, they're halfway *inside* the pouch. Not a big deal, because I don't really need to use those loops, I get by just fine with the other loops. I've debated just cutting them off but haven't in case a silverback gorilla needs to borrow it, so it can be adjusted back to its normal size.
The back pouch is great, I wish it was a little larger though, with a larger opening as well. a 1-liter bladder fits perfectly in there, though it is not easy to get in and out of there, the opening isn't too large. A standard-sized nalgene bottle fits in there and goes in with much less sass than a bladder.
Nalgene + a straw adapter works well, but then you have a 1 kilogram cylindrical weight digging into the small of your back and I hope you aren't having to squeeze through any areas you're climbing through. I prefer the bladder option.
The stitched loops on the back are kinda superfluous, I honestly don't know what I'd clip there, and using them to secure the harness to the wall for easy gear swap isn't ideal. If you like a 2 or 3L camelback-style bladder fo rhotter days, get a gear sling harness that has a smooth back and then just wear your bladder on top of that.
With the straps adjusted to fit, plus the weight of a bladder in the back and weigh of gear in the loops, the whole thing kind of rotates backwards on your body and the location of the sternum strap means it will be nearly across your throat. I removed it and reattached it farther down between some of the lower gear loops so it actually goes across the sternum. No drama there.
