I used to love wearing a backpack and saw no downsides. Until I stopped wearing a backpack. I'll never go back now unless it's absolutely necessary. I still wear a small fannypack but whenever possible I keep it nice and light. I miss being able to take whatever I want but I also dress better and plan more carefully as a result.  Going packless has helped my riding significantly, but if wearing a pack works for you that's great. It's the most convenient and practical solution in many ways. Oh - and packs with mesh-back like Deuter, will cure the back sweat issue. As a bonus they aren't moist when you put them back on after a break, and neither is your back.
