You really don't. I think they help add rigidity to the thin material of the Radisson, but a Pack is plenty rigid as is. It would almost certainly be a waste of money on a Pack or Guide.
I understand how they can give you a feeling of confidence, but that's all they would do on a Pack. Learn to bend side to side at the waist to keep your shoulders square to the horizon no matter what your hips are doing and pretty much you're going to stay upright in your canoe (assuming water conditions you talked about in the original post).
