Travel restrictions allowed only 44lbs per passenger so I had to get creative about balancing camera gear weight and needing other items like clothing and toiletries. My camera bag ended up being about 12-14lbs with all of the gear I ended up taking. Below is a list of what I brought:

What I Took

Kata Sensitivity-V Camera Bag

Canon EOS 7D Body

Sigma 10-20mm Wide Angle

Canon 70-300mm IS L (Rented)

Chargers & memory cards

Canon Powershot G12
