I've never been a big fan of sternum straps, as they seem to
interfere with my breathing. Then again, I'm 6'4" and 200+, so I
usually don't have a problem with the shoulder straps sliding.
However, one day when my load wasn't balanced real well, and I still
had most of my food, a sternum strap would have helped a little. I'd
probably use just wrap a small nylon strap around the shoulder straps
so it could be removed when I didn't want it.
I've met several hikers smaller than me who have considered an added
sternum strap essential.
