You are exactly correct, he's got it packed weird and way too tall. The Hemisphere has many advantages over my original Coyote design and especially over the current mutation of that. Beyond the obvious (being able to remove the main compartment completely, waterproof, etc.) the shape is significantly improved. Carries the load much lower and is deeper fore to aft, plus the exterior stash pockets.
