I have issues with the strap around neck or shoulder. Especially when hiking 
and biking. For casual outings, OK. But just bend over and the camera comes 
swinging around. Sometimes you need your hands free to maneuver or to use 
trekking poles.

I have a Peak Design capture clip attached to the backpack strap. Camera is 
always in reach and does not flop around like a camera strapped around the 
neck. Works great for me for biking when attached to my Camelbak shoulder 
strap. Like the GX9 + PL 12-60. Very comfortable hiking with no neck weight. 
Scrambling up rocks, etc. the camera does not get in the way nor swing around 
into rocks, leaving both hands free. Probably does not work well with heavy 
zoom/telephoto lenses.

I've tried all sorts of ways to keep camera at the ready and so far this works 
the best.
