My main bag is currently a smallish crumpler messenger style bag. I tend to wear this up on my back so it sits at about a 45 degree angle. This length of strap is also just right to allow me to easily swing the bag around in front of me & access the innards.

Does anyone wear the Ristretto on this way, or is it more normal to let it hang lower on your hip, or bottom?

It's the vertical nature of the bag that makes me wonder how this would work.

Not sure yet whether I would go to the Q-AM strap to allow me to snug it up too.
