    get a camera insert pouch from Orient Photo at SL. Its $25... good enough for protecting one DSLR and one-two lens.. or bring alot of clothing to insert in between the camera and lens... keke..

    you should be able to put your camera in your backpack (on top of your things) . . . have a cushion (a shirt or towel) below as support . . .

    alternatively, get a camera backpack bag.

    A bit more troublesome way is to put your camera slingbag into your backpack. It does take up quite a bit of space that way but then this set-up gives you the option to take only your camera slingbag with you. Since you mentioned travel, let's say you're going to the hotel lobby for a meal. You'd like your cam with you but the backpack will be cumbersome while carrying the cam without a bag isn't exactly safe. So at least you have the slingbag. That's my thinking though.

    Wow..u guys are great! That is a lot of methods to use haha... so my final setup is made up of a neoprene camera pouch to hold the entire camera with the 18-55kit ...then place it carefully on top of layers of clothings, far away from all used underwears, placed clothings between the extra lens n the covered camera

    Sorry cannot fit in the camera insert, camera backpack, domke pack, pack a sling bag (cos my free Canon messenger is kinda big) :P

    Is your backpack going to be with you everywhere you go? If not, then bring the sling bag along. Better still, dicth the Canon bag and get a 5M Crumpler.
