hiking without backpack?

Can I get away with hiking without backpack? I'm going on a trip soon, and there might be hiking involved. But, I also want to pack superlight, and don't really want to bring my hiking pack (it's a 30L pack, so it does take up some space). I've tried stowaway backpacks before but they are rarely comfortable. If I'm just bringing water, a clif bar, and my ID, do I really need a backpack? can I get away with a canvas tote? [more inside]

Backpack or messenger bag? And what sort of suitcase?

I need two pieces of luggage for a trip to India/Singapore/Australia:

  2. A piece of hand baggage (carry-on). Here I'm torn between a rucksack/backpack and a messenger bag. What are the best brands of each, and which should I choose?
