camera/lens belts....? Which one do you recommend?

I would like to keep my lenses on my belt while I am shooting. I have found 4 belts I like.
Do you have any of these? Which one would you recommend?

- I like the wider/thicker belsts hoping that they don't hurt your back... The thin ones may hurt my back... Any thoughts?
- Also, I would like to use any pouches for the belts... Some only accept their own brand pouches which is very limiting...

1. Lowepro S&F Deluxe Technical Belt (L/XL) B&H # LOSFDTBLX MFR # LP36285

2. Lowepro S&F Light Utility Belt

3. Think Tank Photo Pro Speed Belt V2.0 (Medium / Large, Black)
4. Think Tank Photo Steroid Speed Belt V2.0 (Medium / Large, Black)

5. Think Tank Thin Skin Belt V2.0 - L-XL-XXL

Nobody using these for event or wedding photography? I guess they are not as good as they look.

I suspect most photographers are afraid of fanny pack- like gear, even today.

Actually, I use a fanny-pack like bag (as a fanny pack) when hiking or skiing. Its not of the type mentioned in the original post. I think its a Mountainsmith and I put a pad insert in it. I like the water bottle holders on either side of the main bag, but sometimes worry about getting gear wet. Hasn't happened yet, the material is adequately waterproof.

I also have an everyday bag that I use as a shoulder bag, but it has a fanny belt built in (tucks into a pocket on the back of the bag). I haven't used that feature yet, but I did think it was a positive feature when selecting a bag.

I dislike lens cases in general (excepting the bag/cases for very large tele lenses, such as the 600/4). But for my M lenses (say an extra 50 or a 28) I much rather have my bag with room for said lenses.

haring, what kind of lenses are we talking about? How many? Is this primarily for wedding jobs?

No body uses and most people use a camera choose to minimise switching in to several lenses. Instead they have several cameras with different lens which is more practical.

I choose the second option too.
