Kirk Photo Security Strap SS-1

The best product is Kirk Photo's Security Strap SS-1 that B&H sells for $80. I use it primarily with the 600mm f/4 lens and carry the 500mm PF by hand. The Kirk strap has an excellent pad which is great with the 10+ lb weight of the 600mm and DSLR, and it has a Arca-Swiss clamp to grab the foot or plate on a lens. 100% secure way to carry the lens and it is compact enough that I keep it in the lens carrier pocket whe using the 600m lens or in an outer pocket on my 18L backpack when using the 500mm PF lens.

Whether it is the 8 lb $13,000 600mm lens or the $3500 500mm PF lens the Kirk Security Strap is the only such device I trust.
