I am looking to get a harness to use while hiking. I have interest in the cotton carry and the spider.Of the two which do you feel would be best for the above application? Or is there a better option besides a back pack.I am looking to go light.My factory camera strap is not very comfortable and I don't like my camera swinging about while climbing over rocks etc.

Thanks for any input, jlstan

The capture clip from Peak Designs. https://peakdesignltd.​com/capture/ (external link)

I own the cotton carrier, and its a very nice rig, but I'm currently selling it due to the fact that I never use it since I have the capture clip now. The capture clip was made by a hiker for hiking with a camera. Basically it just attaches to the shoulder strap of your pack (or other similar strap such as a belt) and the camera locks into it using an Arca-Swiss compatible plate (they now offer an RC2 plate as well).

If you're looking for a fully enclosed camera carrier then Clik Elite makes several chest packs. http://www.clikelite.c​om/products/#Chest%20C​arriers (external link)

I guess you cant use the capture clip with any old arca plate though, such as a RRS L-plate?

If I'm not mistaken the RRS L-plate has a 1/4x20 hole in the bottom of the plate that the captures plate can screw into.

If you're asking if any AS plate can be used in place of the Capture Clip's QR plate then no. The capture uses a plate that is made to lock into their system. Its not a system that just any AS plate can lock into. However their plate can be used with just about AS tripod head.

Yeah. Was asking whether it was a system I could use with the l plate and no secondary plate. The red plate doesn't have the 1/4 hole centered. Which makes it awkward with a secondary. Plus having to take the plate off every time you go to use the L bracket is then frustrating.
