I bought a new rucksack a 2 months ago and every time i use it imy back get rubbed raw. Tried all sorts of combinations to try and eliviate this, so far nothing works.
Have any of you had a similar experience?
I have an octane 18x which I use to run to work and have no such issue, I do have it pretty tight though to ensure it does not move. The shoulder straps I have very short and carry the weight as high up on my shoulders as I can, it works really well for me.Do you have yours tight enough to stop it from moving around ?
all the straps are tight, though the chest strap does loosen though. Only option i can see is to put foam or tweak the bottom of the pack to see if that makes any difference.
I bought one of these last week and tried it out in case it rubbed before a race...tbh it is brilliant, I too pull the shoulders tight, the only chafing is the waist belt buckle.
Are you sure you haven't got something badly adjusted?
