I ride an Airdrop Edit (FS) and a ‘20 Chromag Rootdown both of wich I would say are pretty low and slack. The bars are a little above saddle height, and the saddle is level, so I think I’m good in that department. I’ve developed a good tuck and roll, when i crash, and consider my backpack (with or without protector) part of my protection, so I’m not really interested in a hip pack. I also frequently carry a small folding saw and a (very) small folding spade, which I would have a hard time fitting into a hip pack. I’m (still) practising not overloading though.  If you aren’t experiencing further shoulder load with the Chase, I’m inclined to try it out. It looks stupid with the backpack waist belt tightened up like a dress belt anyway.
