There are services that will deliver an RSS news feed to you via email.
 
FeedMyInbox and BlogTrottr are two such services with free variants of their offerings. By default, FeedMyInbox delivers one email per day and BlogTrottr delivers an email for each post. Both worked fine in my testing. Signing up and unsubscribing is very easy with both services.
 
Here are the news feed URLs you need if subscribing to these services:

From Think Tank Photo:
 
When getting the shot requires extreme body movements, there are few sensations more annoying than having your gear slapping against your chest. To solve this problem, we have released the Backpack Connection Kit.
 
This accessory strap kit is designed to keep the body and lens stored in your Digital Holster stationary and snug against the torso. Carrying a Digital Holster V2.0 chest-mounted allows rapid access to the DSLR inside it while protecting the camera from dust and damage. The straps of the specially designed Backpack Connection Kit keep the Holster bag and DSLR from sagging or shifting weight during continuous movement.
 
In the Backpack Connection Kit video, Kurt Rogers explains how to attach the Think Tank Photo Backpack Connection Kit to a backpack, in order to carry a Digital Holster V2.0 bag on the backpack harness. The Backpack Connection Kit attaches to any Think Tank Photo backpack and the Digital Holster V2.0 series of camera bags.
