Peak Design Slide Lite. I don't like single point connection straps. The camera tends to bounce when not held.

I use several Peak Design products and couldn't be happier. The Peak Design Lite is my choice for my X-T2 and X-Pro2.

I own both the Peak Design and the BR.  I always grab the Peak Design.  It's much more easily removable, and less obstructive.

Peak Design. Much more practical than BR. I use the larger Slide for big lenses, and the Lite for everything else.

Another fan of Peak Design here. 

 

I'm afraid my XT-2 looks a little strange with three dongles hanging from it, but truth is the Peak Design just works.  Two dongles hanging from the top for when I am carrying a heavy lens like my 100-400 and then one more hanging from the bottom of the Vertical grip for when I just want to handhold.  The straps just attach and unattach so easily it makes shooting so much easier.

Thanks everyone for the recommendations. I guess I'll go with PEAK DESIGN SlideLITE then!

Do you have the  PEAK DESIGN SlideLITE attached with the bottom plate or straight to the camera?

I only use TWO dongles, both hanging off the left side of the camera.  This way the camera dangles off my right hip very comfortably.

I have both the leash and the slide lite.  I found that I use the leash more, more compact and packable.

I think you will find that Peak Design call them "anchors".
