I use two things.
1. Rifle sling style strap. Takes it off your "neck."
2. Backpack that opens from the inside, like the fast-backs from Lowepro, you simply turn the back while wearing it, unzip, get in there, zip it up, turn it back. It never gets taken off.
#1 for sure. Basically, just stick one arm through and loop the end over your neck. What do you call that: shoulder sling? Whatever the case, it allows you to hang the camera to your side when you want to free up your frontside. Definitely check out the Peak Designs SL2 strap. Life changing.
As for bag, I wholly recommend a sling type for travel. I used the Tamrac Velocity 8x for travel for years (to Italy once, actually). Very easy to sling it around, open top, change lens, sling back. I don't believe the Velocity is available anymore, unfortunately, but a more modern option is the ThinkTank TurnStyle 20. Very light weight, but if you're away from base for too long the lack of space to carry other essentials begins to wear on you.
Last time I did some urban travel I converted from the sling-style bag to a backpack. It's definitely cumbersome having to unsling it to switch lenses, but I also appreciate the extra bit of storage for phone, wallet, light jacket, water bottle, sunglasses, etc. I went with the ThinkTank Trifecta 10. The Thule Aspect is good for this too (which I also have, for sale no less )
