Wrist strap for A6000 (hiking)

Normally when I hike I carry the camera in my hand and when things get difficult I quickly put the camera in a pouch that is securely fixed to the backpack's shoulder strap next to my chest region.

I don't like camera hanging on my neck or those sling things to the side as they can brush against side of mountains...rocks etc.

I am looking for a wrist strap to secure the A6000 while I am holding it in my hand. I seem to have narrowed down to these-

Joby seems nicer as it is simple with not too much stuff dangling from it. I just hope where the strap seems to be stitched together is strong enough and won't come apart.

Peak Design strap seems over designed with too many plastic bits. Also I don't feel confident about the circular tab thing which can be quickly released.

Are there any systems that are better that I might have overlooked? As things stand I will be going for the Joby one but I will wait 2 days to get your opinion before ordering it.

EDIT-  The attachment point on A6000 is strong enough, right?
