I'd love a wheeled camera bag but many of the places I travel to require that the terrain be covered on foot travel, and sometimes its very rural.
For the life of me I can't think of anything better than a backpack. The ideal solution would be a large, neutrally buoyant helium balloon you could tie off to a pelican case, then leash the case to a belt loop. You could tow your gear through the atmosphere with no effort. That may require some logistical hoop jumping and get you some odd looks, though.
Another alternative is to purchase a REAL hiking backpack, maybe something with a full body harness, one that puts some of the weight on your hips. Find an outfitter in your area, bring all your gear, and try a few out. Try a pack with an internal frame. Just put your camera bag inside and off you go.
