I wore this on a recent trip up Tryfan in Snowdonia, carrying a Nikon SLR. It's far better than a shoulder strap but is hard to get a perfect fit hence the 4 stars. I'm 6 feet tall and well built and the case tends to ride up a little. The camera is well place for removal but don't underestimate how far it sticks out the front if you are involved in physical activity Vs a gentle stroll. I will use this again when I need both hands free and can accept the slight compromise it means in terms of fit and adding a good few inches out front.
