Chest-mount "holder" for WG?

Went out kayaking the Sound today with my new WG10, and discovered that for what I want to do (take movies as I'm paddling/sailing), I don't really have a good way to do this. Since I'd rather not staple it to my forehead, I was wondering if any might know of a holder of some sort (stretchy pouch, straps, etc) that could be secured across my chest over the lifejacket?

I've seen something like this for the GoPro. Maybe their chest strap is universal?

How about a suction cap tripod mount to the kayak deck?

Look at the 'Gecko' range from Delkin Devices. They get used on boats, cars, planes, etc,

Hmm, maybe. The biggest problem with that is that I'm using a sit-on-top boat, and there's not a real deck in front of me. And the surface I do have to work with is slightly textured, so I'm not sure any suction cup mount would stick anyway.

Manacho/Matt, that sport harness looks perfect! Thanks...

Hm, link not working for me. I'll have to try from home, might be our filters... Interestingly, the Pentax harness has a nice page showing it in Products, but I sure couldn't find it under the actual shopping section of the website. But, as long as I know such a thing exists I can get hold of one eventually... :-)

Update: apparently amazon.com is "temporarily gone"... Not just that link.

Yeah, somebody screwed up in their website design section and missed some work... But, having it available from B&H is great. :-)
