Outlaw sling?

The sling that allows you to wear your long gun like a backpack.
I was curious if any body had amy experience with one and what your opinion was. I have one and while it doesn't really fill a need for me, I can't seem to get a good fit to where I wouldn't beat my scope up on my back.
Maybe I am doing something wrong.
Any suggestions or opinions would be welcomed.

Thanks!

No experience with it at all, but my understanding is that they work best on longer rifles, where the mounting points are farther apart. Also the scope should be near your shoulder, not the middle of your back. Here's a picture of a guy wearing one.

That is about how mine sits.
While walking there is nothing to hold the rifle in that spot. It will sway back and forth on your back pivoting from the swivels and banging around pretty good.
I though maybe I was doing something wrong but I guess that is the way is rides.
