Replacing the Sony camera strap

Looking for a comfortable and secure way to carry my A77 around with me on city walks, visiting customers, hikes, etc.

I have a few bad disks in my neck, so the strap that comes with it causes me a lot of pain.

Have found the BlackRapid (BR) and Sunsniper.

The BR seems like an amazing solution altho I have read about it failing from time to time and I don't want to see my A77 falling. Wondering if any of you have a BR strap, which model do you have? I like the RS-7 but it has a quick release at the back which would be so convenient for a thief in a crowded street to help himself to.. So I guess I would get the RS-5 or 4.

I don't know anything about the Sunsniper, but it looks to be German made and very robust with a steel cable running through one version to protect against thieves.

Really interested in hearing what you guys think and use personally.
