Anyone used Thinktank belt bag such as the Speedracer

I have read most posts but not all so forgive me if this has been discussed. I did see a post where wearing on hip may be better than on back. I am 65 and not getting younger, and I hope to go on many 3- 8 mile hikes so my needs are not the same as those on all day hikes. I like to be able to get at my gear easily and this is why I am looking at the Speedracer or Speedfreak bags and maybe even a holster bag.

I like using two bodies, keeping my 70-200 on my D300s And either the 16-35 or 24-120 on my D800 (I will take both lenses). I want to start taking my Benro Travel Angel with me as I get lazy and don't bring a tripod. I am debating about taking the second body. I am usually with my wife when I hike and she gets impatient, so speed is important ant that is why I like using two bodies with a lens on each one. But everything is a trade off so I am rethinking how I want to do things.

I already own three Thinktank shoulder bags and have used Lowepro. If I did use the belt bags I still might want a small backpack for the tripod, food, water, extra cloths and typical stuff that is light and I might need for a longer hike.

Has anyone used the Speedracer or Speedfreak bags?
