Software & Accessories / Re: Perfect solution for carry photo equipment while traveling backpacker style??« on: December 08, 2014, 12:34:12 PM »
Extremely interesting, valuable, and informed discussion. Thanks to all. I also plan several extended trips, though not in such harsh environments. I'd think about carrying a smaller daypack of any sort, inside your large backpack. Two points, though: a) have you considered wheeled luggage of any sort? (I have the largest Eagle Creek backpack with a detachable daypack, neither ideal for photo gear, but doable in mild environments.) But b) whatever else you jettison, DON'T omit 2-3 backup hard drives. If you don't have multiple rugged HD's, you will regret it. Even if only an array of large USB thumb drives... for God's sake don't minimize backup!
