Utility Belt

I'm looking for a good lens belt for my dslr (around the waist, not over the shoulder). Any recommendations on a certain brand and/or product? I need room for two lenses, multiple batteries, and an SD card holder at least. A side question, how do those of you that carry your 70-200 around? My sigma 2.8 has a carrier for it, but is awkward dangling from my shoulder and just doesn't work. It's somewhat heavy, and may be too heavy for a belt.

Re: Utility Belt

Think Tank works well for me. The 70-200 sticks out a bit but it fits in a regular size pouch - I have 3 identical pouches on mine, each with a small zippered pocket underneath for cards and batteries as well as the included rain fly. They are the "25" size I think.

Re: Utility Belt

The problem with belts is with any type of load they can become uncomfortable very quickly. I prefer the Lowepro belt used with modular components and the load bearing harness. This works well if you have to carry a lot of gear. If not much gear, then the belt should suffice.
