Would any of this apply for flights not headed for the US?
If I'm going to, say, Canada and have no transit stops in the US, are they still gonna want to sniff my socks [ ] in Singapore?
If there's a significant difference in the way the flights are screened, I'm prepared to limit my choice of flights and even fly in the early morning hours, just to avoid having to fly into the US.
I intend to fly with my gear, and a laptop, but do not have a bag that is capable of carrying both.
Would ClubSnappers recommend buying a bag capable of such, or to carry the gear in one bag (like a squarish LowePro), and the laptop, separately, in a light sleeve?
I think the two-bag approach will present problems.... What's the smallest backpack that could hold all the following junk, and still qualify as carry-on baggage?
