Blackrapid double strap, or a pair of spiderholsters will work quite well

I used to use the BR double strap - and still have it, although i knly use it when there is a drop risk (over water, at height etc)

I now use the Spiderholster system - i took the holsters off the supplied belt, and just use them on a sturdy nylon "riggers" belt that i wear everday (a Titanium buckled, Wilderness riggers belt)
Comfy, fast and secure - even with a pair of 1DX.
It will take a little while before you can holster your cameras without looking - but only about a week for the fear of dropping them to go away.

I find the Cotton Carrier Vest system as the most stable and comfortable solution. However, not everyone likes it as much as I do, so it's really all personal preference. What we hang on our bodies is as individualistic as what kind of cloth we like to wear. Take a look at this system as well as aforementioned Blackrapid and Spider holster, etc. and pick the one you could live with.

There are plenty of ways to do that.
It can be hard to find what is comfortable and suits your style.
I use a Black Rapid Sport for one camera and a shoulder/neck strap for the other.
