Travel backpack help

I'm looking for a good backpack for travel/hiking that will fit my camera as well as clothes and etc. I've narrowed my options down to roughly 3:

F stop anja + small icu:
Advantages - supposedly carry on compliant but the dimensions are too large so if packed full it might be risky. Maybe some of you frequent flyers can advise on this.
Weather resistance
Made with cameras in mind

Disadvantages - The icu takes up the whole width so it won't be possible to fit a tripod inside vertically. The only reason why I would put my tripod inside is because I heard airlines don't like it when people carry on tripods. Not sure how big an issue this is

F stop Loka ul + small icu:
Advantages - on paper the size is just around the 115 cm limit of the airlines I checked.
It's quite much lighter than the anja.
Weather resistance
Made with cameras in mind

Disadvantages - less durable than the anja?
Same tripod issue as anja

Osprey farpoint 40 + camera insert:
Advantages - cheaper
More options for camera inserts
Can be arranged so that tripod can be put inside
Disadvantages -
Less weather resistant?

My gear: Sony A7iii, 24-105, 16-35 f4, sirui r2204(52cm folded). Might get a smaller tripod if needed

What do you travel pros think? My previous holidays have been with suitcases and the fam so all this is new to me.
