If you carry serious amounts/value of gear and use ARCA plates, you may want to consider what I have come to use

Strap sun sniper pro with steel with two black rapid carbiners, operates on the same principal as a black rapid strap, I found this strap less prone to twisting, but you can,t beat the black rapid carbiners

On the body and lens feet I have the blackrapid slim manfrotto clips and attach them through drilled out  generic arca plates to ensue a flush fit

I always have a second connection by using the second carbiner and for lenses without tripod feet/arcaplate, then its connected  to either the body grip bottom bar using optech loop ends or an ARCA plate with side attachment

I also have the loop ends on lenses so that it frees up the ARCA plate for tripod use,and still retains the two connections
