Being new to backpacking I was afraid, I'd pick the wrong pack. I took two three day hikes in the Northern Cascades and Grand Tetons. The internal frame shaped right to my back. The pack put weight right on my hips. I hear that's what its supposed to do. There are a few simple adjustments if one position gets tiring. The other guy I hiked with was a NOLS veteran and he was jealous of the simple inline design of the pack. No complaints from me yet.
