I think there have been plenty of suggestions and the fact there has been no reply either means they haven't checked their own thread or they aren't interested and are trolling. lols

1. no way a woman can carry a child most the day. They are short spurts, and oftentimes, when sitting down.

2. who says anything about a gig? I said pretty clearly, that I can handle plenty of gear, 15 lbs worth, when it comes to dedicated work. I carry a 200/2, 100/2, 50 1.2, and 24-70 when I go shooting events (can carry the setup all day long).

Clearly, there is a time and place to carry a heavy load, but if I'm going to an amusement park, and already carrying a 25lb baby on one hand with gear on the shoulder, I'de want a way to lesson the load.

There's nothing wrong with wanting more comfort.

Read back through the thread. Several straps have been recommended and the OP hasn't replied.
I'm impressed with your strength allowing you to carry all that kit.

the op also hasn't been back to the site since they asked the questions...i think sometimes newer people ask a question and then come back a few days later to see the answers, sometimes not expecting answers to come so quickly.

I am a 120 lbs woman with very thin arms. It gets heavy carrying this after a couple of hours. I was in New York in May and carried it with my neck strap and my neck and shoulders got very sore after a while. Also I hike a lot in rough terrain and it is hard when hanging from shoulders or neck. Just wondered what others used.

Another vote for BlackRapid. Very comfortable carrying a camera around all day.

No, not offending me at least. I have a rather petite friend with a similar setup that uses blackrapid strap. Best out there

I searched on line and it looks like an over-the-shoulder strap. I'm pretty sure it would be almost the same as what I have now.

The difference with BlackRapid style straps is much better ergonomic cushioned design design whereas OEM is just a thin unpadded strap with zero weight distribution characteristics. I think you would be surprised. If you still have concerns, look into chest, backpack or belt carry systems that place the camera right on your body, which is super helpful in rougher terrain. I am out of ideas if that will still be insufficient...

Some quick Amazon search examples...

I use the Optec strap with extensions and carry it on the opposite shoulder. Works pretty well for me, (7D with 500 F4). I also used it with the 70-200 for a lighter setup and thought it worked well too. Just took a little adjusting to get just the right height for walking and good to go. Very inexpensive too!.

I like my cotton carrier vest and my wife has one of their belts, take a load off of the neck and camera doesn't swing around when hiking and climbing.

Peak Design Slide is a 3 way strap. Cross body is so comfortable & your camera isn't tossed around. I use mine with a 7d mark ii & 100-400mm mkii & am buying another for my 6d. Check out YouTube for videos of the different straps recommended here. Good luck!
