AFAIK there is no decicated backpack that will carry all of your equipment. I seriously doubt there are many backpacks at all that will carry it all and anything else at all. have you thought of the weight if you want to carry it all at once and all the time. I am adding up to well over 50 pounds just for the equipment.
I sometimes travel with a similar outfit (4x5 Horseman FA with 5 lenses, 8x10 Phillips Compact II with an additional couple of lenses, Noblex F, digital camera, and all the film and stuff that goes along with the above). I never try and cram it all into the same pack. I have a couple of ATA approved cases that carry the gear and I do carry a f64BPX backpack that I use when trekking on the other end. Whenever I can I ship the gear in advance via DHL/Airborne or UPS ground.
