I'm planning a 2 1/2 week trip to the Andes and Amazonia regions of Ecuador at the beginning of 2014. I've figured out my clothing for two climates and all will fit in my brand new Synapse 25. However, I would appreciate a bag recommendation to carry gear I don't want to let out of my sight, such as: noise cancelling headphones, I-pad mini or I-phone (depending on wben I migrate back to Apple from android), Kindle, small camera, Minox binoculars, and the cables and chargers and batteries if applicable; my travel tray filled with glasses, sunglasses, hearing aids, meds, flashlight, headlamp; wallet, travel papers, cop kit, snacks, maybe one change of clothes, and the kitchen sink. I worry that it would be a tight fit with the Copilot, the cadet, and the imago. I see that the Imago is being retired. I'm not sure that whatever the new release will meet my space needs. Anyone have any ideas?
Also, how do you deal with trekking poles and the airlines?
