Buying a Backpack?

Currently my kit contains the following :


2.18-55MM STM

3.55-250MM STM

4.40MM F2.8 (ordering today)

5.Couple of memory cards

6. Van guard Autcus 283CT Tripod(With Sirui k20x Ball head)

7.Cokin filter System

8. Other small accessories like lens cleaners,filters,straps etc

I am going to an east coast trip next week so the bag which came free with my purchase tend to be not so good so it too small. i am for something like bacpack for the ease of carrying

So , i am looking to buy this one

StreetWalker® HardDrive Camera Backpack

its around $230 i am also looking forward to buy some gear in the next 8 months or so ,it has lot of room and  also claims to carry a tripod (Externally).

Now my query is,

Is this worth cost or do i have similar option at lesser costs?

is it WITHIN the standard accepted across US?

Is a tripod actually allowed as carryon with bag ?(i have read lot of this on various forum most say its cool but just wanted to confirm because my tripod also a good 6 lbs+)
