If you think the weight of your dslr gear will would kill your neck and you don't want to carry it I suggest you think about your porter for minute and decide if it is fair to make your poor porter carry your gear all day long for a few bucks.

I understand the sentiment, but I disagree. I could carry my own gear. I choose to employ a porter because it is one of the few ways of contributing the local economy. The porter obviously wont be carrying a camera around their neck, but my backpack. They will be carrying around 1/3rd of what they'd normally carry for goods movement and being paid twice as much as they normally would. This is a job for these people no different to if I pay a someone to help me move furniture and I respect them for it.
