comment The best solution for carrying a D-SLR when hiking
@KateGregory Thanks Kate. That confirms the ease of access to the camera, which was a really important factor in my question. I guess the only point remaining to be confirmed is whether one can wear such a waist bag at the same time as a large backpack when that backpack is strapped to the hips. I assume the waist bag and its strap go above the backpack strap, between chest and hip level?

Thanks Kate, it's good to know my batteries might be okay after all. Can you comment on the compatibility of using a waist bag like this in conjunction with a backpack? The waist bag on its own would not have sufficient capacity to hold my tent, food, sleeping bag, etc.

@berry120 Thanks for the Eneloops tip, I hadn't heard of those. Having just spent a few minutes Googling these, am I correct in assuming they are only available in standard formats like AA or AAA? If this is the case, it would not suit my D-SLR which takes a proprietary battery format.
