I just put my 6 million dollar bag on then the black rapid strap. Or if I'm wearing the dual strap, I'll put that on first, then the bag. While I'm putting the bag on I put the camera through the bags strap. I generally only carry spares in the bag and only get into every other hour or so. With bag under the straps, I can pull it around from the back and get in whenever I need to.

Make the sling bag strap the sling strap by attaching a karabiner to it.

This can actually be done to about every bag. I just swap the karabiner to the bag I'm using, if you have a wider strap just use a bigger karabiner.

Get a marine grade karabiner for extra strength, make sure you don't use one of those included with novelties and give aways as these are not weight bearing.

Shoulder Bag
QUOTED IMAGE

This is an interesting solution.
I'm going to look into this with my bags.

I don't really have a problem with wearing my BR strap and a sling except I get concerned about the camera hitting against the sling bag when they're dangling around by my hip. Does anyone have any special tactics to prevent this?

Thanks everyone for responses, they all were very helpful.
After some messing around with BlackRapid RS-7 and Lowepro Slingshot 202 AW I've found what looks like perfect setup.
What I've done is put BlackRapid on first, fasten BRAD underarm thingy and put Slignshot on the top, but after that I unclipped Slingshot strap buckle that attaches it to the bag and threaded it under RS-7 strap on the chest.
What I ended up with was RS-7 under Slingshot on the back and on the top on front. And I can still swing Slingshot into front position.

With RS strap over sling on the front you won't.
