Travel storage for birding/photo equipment

Recommended Posts

I currently have a Lowepro backpack that barely fits Canon 7D MK II with battery grip, 400mm lens attached, 80mm angled scope, and Bushnell 10x42 binoculars in chestpack (stuffed in the outer section).  Add on other stuff in the bag, and tripod, and the thing is a beast to haul around the airport.  If I have room I have a couple of times thrown the tripod in my other carry-on.  

I’m looking at the Lowepro x200 AW, as a roller carryon, that also has a backpack option to it.  I have another decent size backpack that can handle about a week’s worth of clothes, and be much lighter.  I think I can use this for my normal birding also.  

What does everyone else else use for carrying all your equipment around?  Thanks in advance.

Nikon...Canon....doesn't matter to me:D  Just looking to see what everyone else uses for both birding and photography travel.  Seems like most of the stuff I find is strictly for photography equipment.  No scopes or binoculars.  The Bartley helped, thank you.  I follow him on YouTube, but don't get to his site much.  He recommends the x300 AW, which is not carry-on, but the same style as the x200 AW.
