What's your favorite dual-camera body harness system?

Honestly, I have spent a good deal of money on 3 or 4 different set ups and I'm not comfortable with any. I do a lot of running with my gear and all the bouncing makes me nervous. I was covering a college football game and my buddy standing next to me had his 7D w/ 70-200mm attached to one and it fell and needed to go to Canon. Now, even he said he thought it failed only because it worked loose while running up and down the sidelines. Another photog that has been doing this a very long time has told me he buys the cheap ones off EBAY and then makes them more robust by doing things such as reinforcing the stitching in some places.

I think most would do for largely stationary photography.

I have the full Cotton Carrier system.It works. They have a vid showing a guy doing flips on a tramp with a camera and 200mm lens in a chest mount.

Cotton Carrier. While "best" is subjective, I can say that after all of the years I've used the Cotton Carrier it's never failed me. In my opinion it is the single best option out there.

Thanks for the feedback, all! I sincerely appreciate it! I ended up ordering a "new" BlackRapid RSD-1BB off eBay. The guy says he ordered it and never used it, so you never know if it's actually very lightly used or whatnot. But hey, for $60, I'll take the risk! :-P
