I'll be going out to Alaska sometime next year to photograph the bears for 3-4 days. I will be going with a guide, so I'll have a home base where I can leave stuff.
Being that these trips are weight conscious, I'm trying to find a way to limit myself to one bag that carries all my clothing and all my photography equipment. My intent is to take 2 days worth of clothes - wear, allow to dry, wear and done. Lots of socks as we will be hiking 2-5 miles per day and crossing streams and what not.
My photography gears consists of: 7d x2, Sigma 17-50, 50-150, 120-300, polarizer and tripod. Anything else will be left at home for this trip.
I've read on here a about several guys using a hiking pack with cube insert for trips like this. Having looked at some hiking bags this weekend, I like the idea of this as a one bag approach - carry everything for the trip, unpack at camp and carry only the essentials in the field. However, I am yet to find a cube big enough to hold the 120-300, which is about 12"x6". The thought then comes up that a cube big enough to hold it may take up alot of space in the bag, more than what I am thinking.
So, anyone got any suggestions on a cube or bag that might work well for this?
Forgot to mention - the F-stop bags look great but don't think they'll work for this as I would require a large ICU with the Satori and, based on their pictures, that won't leave much room for other gear.
