    I selected the Pana forum because I'm using a GH3, but this works for all m43 cameras.

    I've been using a "Lowepro Photo Sport Sling" all summer for medium killer day hikes up to 8 miles and it works great. After a while, and especially on the down part (this probably results as much from age, fatigue, and muscle stress as from design), my right shoulder starts to get a bit sore. But having grown up in the mountains (in the "pre-goretex" era), it works great. Light as light can be. For tramping around (including in cities) I can't imagine a better quick-draw pack and it holds my jacket, lunch, water, and whatever else quite comfortably.

    I just bought, in anticipation of shooting throughout the fall and winter, the "photo sport 200 aw" which is slightly larger and a balanced backpack. The same easy access camera pocket, but with more space for layers and food.

    Absolutely no connection to Lowe, but credit where credit is due.

    I wear a Utilikilt (or hiking shorts with extra pockets) when I hike. No shoulder burden whatsoever. :D Notice the conveniently stashed bag of animal crackers.

    And I also bring a Mirrorless Mover 20 if I am bringing more than one body or two lenses.

    Thank goodness for cultural differences. My middle name may be Fullerton, but I doubt that even I'd escape the mountains unharmed (Ned Beatty anyone?) thus kilted.

    I do hope to tramp around the Scottish Highlands within the next few years as a dream vacation (Ben Nevis here we come). Although it could turn out to be just another Steve Coogan/Rob Brydon jokefest.

    But then my Rob is named Colleen, and we live in Maine, not LDN, so the omens rejoice.

    Photos to come in years future.
