Good idea. That's the only thing I hate about mine. I have very little skin left on the back of my legs.

I wondered about whether height would have anything to do with this. I'm 6'1", also....and it's never been an issue with my Summit.

I'm 6'5" and I've got a Titan...I have this problem. Mine grabs hold of my tall rubber boots. But I can tell you one thing...I'm not cutting any straps! I'll just unclip em, move em, re-clip em!

What I'm puzzled about is whysomeone wouldneed to cut the straps to relocate them. Whey you buy a Summit stand, YOU put the backpack straps on yourself during assembly. Just unstrap them, un-do the loop and move them.
You're right!

I'm 6' 1", have the Goliath and this is not an issue. Just move the straps, no need to cut!

I didn't think to mention that this is model specific. Which models I don't know but I do know that my 3yr old Summit Bushmaster did this to me. And I base cutting the straps on my particular model. Mine was sewed to the upper most crossmember from the factory. I don't use this stand anymore since I bought my LW but had to do this modification for my brother since I donated it to him.

Option 2: get a LW

I'mroughly 5' 11" and I honestly don't have a problem with it. I mean it sits low, but it doesn't hit my legs.
