Schleping While Running Hack

I was given a few important errands yesterday—return a movie to the library and drop off our taxes at a FedEx shipping box—and figured incorporating them into a jog around the neighborhood was the way to go. But I wasn't sure the best way to carry the items with a minimum of fuss (and flippty-flop from a loose backpack).

At the last second, I came up with the following: put the items my Sea to Summit packable backpack and then put my sweatshirt *over* the pack.

Here's a few attempts at showing how this setup looks:

The result was surprisingly comfortable. There was a little movement from the pack while running, but it was minimal; far less than if I had just tossed on a backpack and ran out the door.
