Just a note on ergonomics and the human body....
Anything you wear that puts the weight primarily on your shoulders/upper body will eventually give you very negative effects.... back pain, foot pain, pinched nerves, numbness in hands and feet, headaches, etc.
Our cameras weigh a TON. Your back/upper body is not designed to support that much weight. That is why any good backpack has a waist belt that will take 90% of the weight off your back and transfer it to your waist. The straps on a proper fitting backpack should not even touch your shoulders on top... the straps are there for lateral support primarily.
I used to have all kinds of simple and fancy strap systems that went on my shoulders. Massive pain was the only thing I got after a couple years. I eventually talked with a sports medicine doctor and was urged to start wearing a belt system...
The belt system has been in effect now for 3 years and I have no negative effects from it other than it sometimes feels like it pulls my pants down a little.
Help your back, feet, and general well being and get a good belt system.
