Hey Jennifer, part of that is also being on a gentler slope. I had some trouble with it on the BH's in the beginig too. Takes a bit to build the core mscls for that if u aren't in best shape yet. It is easier on a steeper pitch, but seems u r still nervous about that. I wouldnt worry about it, I don't know of any particular reason it would b a problem or interfere, but if it is I'm sure someone will correct me.

Now the only time I seem to have trouble is if I got too much shit in my camlebak pack along with my water! . Makes me too top heavy.
