I save the other stuff for the trunk of my car or hiking locally. I'm always with other members of the family, and don't want to hold them back while I set up 4x5 for instance. If I was traveling solo and staying for an extended time it might be different. It's freeing to walk through airports and have everything on me in the vest I'm wearing, and nothing in my checked luggage except for clothing and toothpaste, all easily replaced.
