that also looks great but not wanting to spend $60 on a sling.
Well worth it for something that comfortably carries more than $1000 worth of gear.

Glad to see someone has the luma cinch. been pondering one for hiking. I like the ability to tighten it up on the fly. Hiking with a gripped 7D and 70-200 with my sling does create an issue with the camera wanting to bounce around. My current solution is a carabiner attached to the ring by my plate that I connect to a ring on the chest of a vest. But I really hate the vest. It looks ridiculous. lol
The question is - with that stretchy material, will that kind of weight hold steady and close to the body while I'm climbing up a steep slope? Just curious if you've used it in this manner and how well it's performed.
I find that the stretchy material that the pad is made out of doesn't really stretch enough to be significant. Granted my gripped T2i is quite a bit lighter, but even with the 70-200 I rented recently, it stayed tight when I needed it to. I just cinch it down and rotate the camera to my back, and it pretty much stays there. I do have the version 1 of the strap, but I have heard really good things about the new one, and they work pretty much the same. The only disadvantage is that it doesn't work great with a backpack on.
Peak design has also got a new kickstarter you might be interested in that gets you their new, pretty cool sling/strap and a Capture Pro as a reward.
