Or better yet, buy straps that attach to your packs should straps and put your camera on them. Won't feel the camera at all and it will be securely in front of you at all times. Hate shoulder straps when trekking as the camera always seems to bump things...like sharp rocks as you scramble.

Who makes these? Would you happen to have a photo of the setup.

Something like these. I have a different version, but I've seen these things available from other suppliers.

......and has a metal base mount that won't stick to your camera.

How do you prevent plastic mount from sticking? What causes it to stick? Many lenses have plastic mounts. I would like for this to not occur.

Very good point about it bumping things while trekking. I just suggested it more as a solution to relieve the weight of the camera on the neck. However, when I am hiking, I still use the shoulder strap, but I also have a waist pack (holster style) that I put the camera in while not shooting, that keeps the camera at my side so it doesn't flail around. While it is in the pack, I still have the shoulder strap on so when I am quick to pull it out to shoot, I don't have to worry about possibly dropping it. I don't like attaching it to my backpack because of when I take my backpack off and put it down. I'd still like to keep my camera on me.

some sort of holster would be best for hiking. The closest I have to a holster right now is a waist pack. An issue I have with that would be that I cant fit a hooded lens, and definitely wont fit a shoulder style strap.

I've looked into the capture clip as well, but I dont think it'll work with an L bracket. A super thin neck strap would be useful for lens changes (dont want to put the camera down).

You can save a few bucks.

You can use any strap that's thin enough. Canon EOS works fine.

Girth hitch (external link) is an awesome thing.

I have the Lowepro outback 200. It easily fits a camera with like a 24-70 w/hood attached in the normal position. It also fits a camera with a 70-200 with the hood attached in reverse. Not sure what your most used lens is when you go hiking, but mine is usually UWA - normal focal lengths. I keep the telephoto in the backpack or lens pouch except when needed.

Also, the shoulder strap like the RS-4 which I use attaches to the bottom of the camera, so I just have it dangle out of one end of the pouch and zip the holster so it is completely closed except the small area where the shoulder strap dangles out.

L-bracket is great as I can attach my camera to my tripod in portrait or landscape mode and not even worry about having to take the strap off to mount a plate.

I spent 5 years carrying a 40D (which by itself weights more than 6D) with attached battery grip. 6D feels really light now! :)

My travel camera is a T2i with light lenses, e.g. the old 35F2 or a light zoom. For hiking, I would take a look at the SL1 and the 18-55 STM IS, or a small light prime. Even the 17-40L is compact and light, and would be good for backpacking. I like optical viewfinders.

I now leave the 5DIII home most of the time along with the 24-105, 70-200 f/2.8 IS II and the 430EX II.

I carry the SL-1 with the 18-135 STM. Very pleased with the IQ, the weight, the handling, everything.

And, of course, this lens covers the range by the above lenses and a bit more reach.

L quality lens? Nope. 5DIII quality body? Nope. Tradeoffs. But I take more photos now.

The 5DIII is not totally reserved for professional use by me but the vast majority of non-pro use is with the SL-1. It's better than any Rebel I have ever owned and I have owned most of them. I like the shots far better than what I could get with the 30D, 50D and 60D as well.

I have the 24-70L and 70-300 DO for travel...they're the perfect combination

You and I must be the only two owners of that lens. ;)

I just got back from a trip to Germany. I carried the 24-105 on a 6D. It was a great combo. I wish I had taken the 70-300 DO as well but I didn't. Oh well.

The Peak Design capture clip version 2 is arca Swiss and manfroto compatible. It also fits right onto the bottom of my l-bracket. I put the clip on my backpack strap to hold the camera.
Regarding a super thin camera strap, I just bought peak design leash because the strap is thin and detachable so I can stuff in my pocket if I don't need it.

Have not done any real testing. Maybe this weekend. But I clearly don't miss the 24-105. The 18-135 STM is that good. At least on the SL-1 it is.

Please let me know what you think, I don't really care about charts etc just real world stuff. Focus speed, contrast/color. etc. I mostly use my 24-105 as a casual travel lens and I would like something for my 60D to work like this. There are times I like having a pop up flash and I don't always need full frame.

Thats every DSLR users problem. I tried several mirrosless models and cropped bodies but I am now back to my 5d+ 35L. I must say I was never happy with the IQ with the smaller sensors. FF is something different.
