I've been climbing a few relatively short trees, but I'm having trouble getting my DSLR up there without it swinging around and hitting branches. Is there a decent means to do this?

If it's only for DSLR try put it inside your shirt hung by your neck. Specially at autumn/winter with sweaters works for me.
