I can't handle much weight on my back, so I tend to use a hard-sided roller bag (Samsonite) carry-on size to carry my gear, and a smaller, lightweight backpack. Once I am at my destination I only carry what I need for the day in the backpack. The rest is locked up in the hard sided case. The padded inserts from the backpack pull out, so I put the padding with the camera gear in the carry-on roller bag when in transit. My backpack also holds a laptop. I take two mirror-less bodies, and lenses (including a telephoto), external backup drive, lots of batteries, filters, a flash, etc. All fits easily in the carry-on, with other things like clothing, books, etc. The set-up also worked when I had my bigger Nikon gear. I use a Tenba backpack. I too am short, and the Tenba fits me well, and is very light weight. If I am hiking and out for the day, I can use the upper portion for a rain parka, lunch, etc. instead of gear. The pack also holds water bottles. I was recently recommended to an Amazon DSLR backpack, told it was a great value, but I haven't checked it out yet.
As always, Steve, very inspirational. Thank you for taking the time to share your insights. Much appreciated.posted in TRAVEL PHOTOGRAPHY (Part Two - Extended Version)
