Lumbar packs?

Anybody else use lumbar packs for day hikes? I fell in love with the idea when I picked up a Kelty Summit from Sierra many moons ago...it had just enough room for most of the things I really needed for day hikes up to 3-4 hours. Only lately have I upgraded to a Mountainsmith Day TLS, and it may be the last pack I ever buy.

I think lumbar packs are useful thing for enjoying hiking in a good way. I use this always and feel free for having great sort of time in an easy way.

Because of a neck problem, my wife used a Mounainsmith lumbar pack for several years.  Earlier this year she switched to a ME-2 Pack.  It's strapless and big enough yet light enough for use as either a daypack or a backpack (she's used it for both).  It seems more comfortable and easier to pack than the lumbar pack she used before.
