Most camera bags are great for carrying your gear to the airport or to a shoot somewhere.  Frankly everyone that I have tried is crap for hiking, especially for an all day hike.

I would recommend:
- A hiking pack from an outdoor store - I have a berghaus one its fantastic.
- An insert like the one recommended above - I think there are heaps of options.
- A capture pro to carry the camera on the shoulder strap so you don't need to dig it out of the back everytime.

Cheers

unfortunately Lowepro does not offer a slightly larger Dashpoint pouch to fit EOS M6 or M5 w/attached 18-150. Still hoping for a Dashpoint 50 ...

+1

Just got my M6 + M18-150 kit.  The M6 + M11-22 fits (snugly!) in the Dashpoint 30, but the 18-150 is just a bit too long. 

I just ordered the Lowepro Format TLZ-10 for the M6+18-150 combo.

Among the Camera bags for outdoor I still say Lowepro 200 or 300 AWII is the closest. I had my feedback where it falls short for me in an earlier post. I also read about F-stop, which is pricy and yet a hiking pack with seperately sold inserts.

My practical approach for my M set has been this: I purchased a Fast-Pack Ultimate Direction from my favorate running store. I drop my dashpoint-30 in it and fix a lens in the side pocket. It has a strap in it and easily covers the largest M lens that I have (55-200).

 I like the idea of attaching dashpoint to a hook outside of the pack as @AvTvM suggested.
I had looked at Osprey packs for hiking and cycling. Those have several pockets that can be utilized for several gears. Most of them have a padded top pocket that I imagine is a good place for a mirrorless body.

I'm looking for a light bag-pack to put these on for short day hiking:
One M series body
2 lenses + filters + batteries
1LB Tripod
Water (would consider a hydration pack)
Fruit, trail mix etc 
Cellphone+Wallet etc
A light jacket etc

What's your suggestion?

I have a couple of cheap amazon bags that I use for my M's depending on the kit I'm carrying.

both of them are really cheap and I'm pleasantly surprised with the quality.

this is my bigger bag, and I think i'd carry all you are wanting to. I have an M5, DP1 merril, 11-22, 18-55, 18-150, full filter sets, batteries,etc in this bag no problems.

and this is my smaller bag when i'm just out with a couple of lenses and camera.

I pack things in it like medication and stuff when I'm packing my suitcase so it ends up not taking up much room as a spare bag when travelling.

when I had two M's with two sets of lenses and a couple of sigma's.. this was my bag. again, great quality for the price. no complaints.

I'm finding at least with amazon you don't have to go brand name, and big price to get some pretty amazing bags.
