    18-70 kit lens
    70-300 F4-5.6 Sigma
    F56AM with lambency

    i may bring a 24-70mm F2.8 sigma too but never felt inclined to bring my 70-200 f2.8 yet...
    maybe also a tripod if places are known for nice scenery....

    That's very encouraging. This is because I am also planning to take full load with tripod end of the year for a trip.
    So looks like I am quite safe, for this will be the first time I am carrying more.

    It really depends on individual choices ..

    I have 2 x DSLRs, 3 lens, tripod and Apple MBP weighting around 15Kg to China for photoshoot trip ...

    Else a PNS will do just for causal shoot ..

    are you going on a photographic trip or holiday?

    i would only bring my D60 or my D100 for my trip with a all in one lens

    or maybe one wide and one tele not too much, one which can all fit into my hadley pro,

    or my F3x

    but for tokyo, it's always only M6 with 50mm/f2
    Pentax K-x

    For India trip, is for holiday & photography (60/40).
    As for trip to Bangladesh, is for business & photography (80/20). That is why I only bring 'light' gear.

    most of the time D60 with 18-200 and a 50mm f1.8

    its sometimes hard to decide what you want to bring especially if you are out for a trekking trip and you will be moving place to place with just a daypack, which needs to contain your extra clothings, toiletries and your gears.

    Pentax k20d
    Tamron 28-75mm, f2.8
    Pentax 12-24mm, f4
    Pentax 50mm, f1.4

    Hoya 77mm Circular polarizer, Gorillapod, Lenspens, SDHC cards, extra batteries

    Panasonic LX3

    Asus EeePc 1000HE, LaCie Rugged 500GB disk drive (have to process images from a year + travel somehow).

    My recent trip to California:

    D300
    Nikon 18-55mm - used a lot
    Sigma 10-20mm - hardly used
    CPLs - used somewhat
    Monopod - used somewhat
    Speedlight - hardly used

    It was a business trip though, so didn't really have much time to check out the tourisy places.

    I guess you would be walking quite a bit while you are at Angkor Wat.
    All your equipment fit nicely into your Flipside 400AW would be just nice, but not light certainly.
    Do you intend to walk mostly with this set up and with your Flipside 400AW on your back?

    It really depends very much on the kind of trip. Is it a trekking, city-sight-seeing/shopping, possibility of night scenary, who's travelling together, duration of the trip, etc. I will also read the itinerary to visualise what I need and then pack some of the gears I have below plus the associating accessories such as the filters to match the lens, memory back-up, batteries and chargers, etc, and pick the appropriate bag for them. I will also usually travel with more than 1 camera bag. A big one, hand-carry into the plane, and a small one, stuffed with not so precious stuffs will be put into the check-in luggage. During the trip, pick the bag depending on the need of the day.

    I just did a test packing & carrying this morning..... 1st off, can't find a place to put my 580EX MkII, likely won't be bring it (my friend is bringing his 480EX... can share). 2nd, the Tripod is hanging lose on the top, Lowepro Flipside 400AW doesn't have 2 straps to hold the tripod.... only a tripod leg/foot pocket + 1 middle support strap. I've already DIY an extra strip for supporting the top of the tripod...... so, problem solved

    The weight is of course.... not as light as I would like it to be.... but also not so bad. Everything is nicely balance on my back. My only 'fear' is the extra weight of the tripod.... but believe that except for certain location.... Angkor Wat, Sunrise, Sunset and perhars nightshot. I won't need to take it out all of the time...... Street Candid, walking about... etc.
