Strap/holster solutions?

I currently use one of these to carry my Panasonic G9 and PL100-400 which is my normal walkaround kit.

It definitely helps with distribution of weight but I still have back issues. My strap sits on my right shoulder and my camera and lens hangs on my left side. I am however getting back issues which in turn affects my mobility badly.

I am thinking things would improve with some kind of holster which is supported either evenly across both shoulders or as a belt around my waste. The camera and lens combination is far from big by long shooter standards but it is a significant size and weight.

I thought maybe something like this

I'm not sure if it will limit my mobility with the large lens hanging and if I will be able to have speedy access to the camera.

I'd really appreciate input on a suggested solution.
