You might also consider a Pelican case for travel and have the backpack in your checked luggage to transfer to when you get to the destination.

Thanks. I try not to check luggage. US Airways is my usual airline (phoenix is hub) and they charge $25 to check a bag. I also hate hanging around to collect checked bags. I'm flying next week and will see how this works with my new loweprow 500 (hoping I don't get grief for tripod strapped on pack). I will have 7D, 500/4, Sigma 100-300/4, and Tamron 17-50/2.8 in pack (with charger, cards, Gimbal head, etc.). I have a smaller bag for some clothes that can fit under a seat if necessary. I will pack my tripod bag in my small carry-on just in case they make me check it.

I thought I would love a backpack for my camera until I bought one. It's probably just me, but I like a traditional bag better. I don't do much hiking any more though.
