How tight do you tighten your backpack straps?

I have the straps as tight as they can go so the top of the backpack sits just behind my neck

    My fingers have to be able to slide in between the strap and my back.

    Wearing the pack with a very light load in it, loosen the vertical shoulder straps almost as far as they loosen. Then put the hip belt on and adjust it such a way that the hip belt is supporting the entire load, just as if you were wearing a hip pack, a lumbar pack. The load will be hanging loose and want to swing around with every step you take. Tighten the shoulder straps just enough to decrease the load's swinging around but not so tight that it's your shoulders rather than your hips carrying to load, not so tight that the load is snug against your back. Then fasten the chest strap so that the shoulder straps don't want to drift downwards off your shoulders.

    Wrap them around your neck and pull them as tight as they can go.

    Why would you want them that tight? Can't possibly be good for your back or neck.
