I prefer the protactic because:
I t fits under the seat and the overhead compatment of all the airlines I used from the Boeing 737-800 for local flights to the Luftansa's Airbus A380. I fit far more gear than your list but not the tripod which I dont think you can carry on anyway. Its far lighter and more compact to carry on your back than the runner. the wont be much space for clothes in the 350, maybe the 450 if you not carrying a suit and tie.
Thanks for the first hand advice. I'm leaning that way, the reason I'm considering the Prorunner is because it's being marketed as very traveler friendly.
Do you have the 350 or 450? I'm asking because of the ability to put it under the seat would be a bonus if I need to get the larger one.
And no, this will be fairly casual clothing, the work I'm doing does not require suit and tie. If I need that I'll just do a small checked bag.

I've flown with a tripod many times, no complaints.
The protactic doesnt have wheels btw, you only carry option is in your hand on on your back. There is a about 1kg/2lb weight difference between the bags. I can load my bag and still make the 7kg carry weight restrictions cause I have to take the laptop out when it goes through the scanner. I would pop into a camera store with 10% more gear and clothes than you intending to carry and see if it all fits.
That's a good idea. It may be worth it buying at a local store just to see if everything fits. May not feel great about just going there and not buying.
