There is a big difference between carrying all your gear to the trail,
as opposed to what you carry on the trail.
The tripod reference for example,
my tripod goes over the shoulder with the cam attached.
This means the rest my lenses and stuff easily go into the Kata Sling
with space for a Netbook (if you must).
Ready for action and no need for 10 minutes of assembly for every shot,
plus I can change lenses without a major production.
My old Kata (SB-902) has top entry and feet, which means I can put it down anywhere,
a massive improvement over backpacks, which just love falling over into mud.

Food drink and other messy stuff goes into a nifty small backpack of dubious parentage.

I have no intention of carry all my gear, in fact all my gear has been cut down a lot recently. 1 body two zooms and a prime.

But I am travelling I will have a lot of personal items to carry including the crap I buy on the way.
