I have wondered this myself.

B&H actually has a bunch of user reviews.

They all seem to like the way it functions.

I have the ClikElite Compact Sport backpack. The ergonomics of the ClikElite packs are great. One of the best investments I have made.

I posted the same question in DPR Pentax forum. That's what I got so far:

Just from watching the promo video, I can't say it would work for me as a working photographer.

I would need to be able to have on board at least 2 bodies and 3 to 4 lenses as minimum kit.

That said, it may well suit other folk, at least it's something new and different that I've not seen before.

My application is much easier. I usually hike with K-5 and FA*300/4.5 + 1.4X TC around my neck. I'm mostly interested in getting more stable camera position when shooting. It's definitely not really convenient for brisk walk, when a camera is attached, but how good is it for getting a steady shot?

For this sort of application I would recommend a simple bean bag affair, filled with light loose "beans" or similar.

Light to carry, can be placed just about anywhere and provides a very stable platform to shoot from.

Failing that, there are various monopod/walking stick pole things around that would work for photographic hiker types of folk.
