So I am going to throw a wrench right into this.....what about a DSLR camera bag that has dual functions. I need to be able to carry the pack on a plane with the camera AND a laptop in it. But I want to take the camera (Canon and 80-200 lens) with me while skiing but don't want a huge pack on my back when skiing....I'll feel like the Hunchback of Notre Dame! Any ideas?
A Tranpack Sidekick Pro will allow this along with your boots too. Remember the more things you ask a product to do, the less things it does well.
