Actually that is not even slightly noticed. BUT, the only issue I have really noticed with it is if you are not that tall (5.5 or less) and have a long boat (8.2 and up).
Beyond that its really great for walks more than a half mile or so up to... lets say 3 miles. The most I have hiked is about 3 miles and it doesn't matter what you are using after that... 75lbs with gear in your boat is just that 75 LBS!!!!
If you have any questions, give me a holler at 303-517-2621
