@Jase... I don't think the Gliders Rig/belt/spring rod suffers from this rise/fall problem. Easy to understand that anything that relies on the combination of a shoulder support plus chest support might be problematic.
I have the Gliders Grey and put the camera (5 lbs) on the horizontal bar. Mechanically, it is quite solid.
I don't have enough experience with it yet to comment more but it beats hand holding.

I have been using a spring rod on the front of the cam for years and it's magic!! The belt is sorta almost near your hips so it doesn't really move as you breathe and the spring rod takes up any cam movement if you need to tilt up or down but more importantly it takes all the weight off the front of the camera .... the chest pod is really useless as the support is sitting right on your rib cage!!! If you ask nicely, Cine City will also sell you just the belt and spring rod..however I have added a mini ballhead to the top of my rod so it alllows the camera to move in any direction.
