They aren't for crop, which was the basis of my gripe, but I didn't expect it to be cheaper anyhow.

1) Canon 200 EG Deluxe Backpack
2) Crumpler 7 Million Dollar Home
It would be to carry all of the gear in my sig (though, it may not be necessary to bring everything, I'm thinking I'd kick myself if I didn't).
The other option is, enjoying this as a vacation, and bringing only my old Point and Shoot. I'm pretty sure my wife might like that a bit more, but part of the appeal of me buying some of the stuff that I bought was the fact that I could bring it to Aruba.
So, any last minute thoughts/ideas?
I think it would be pointless to have invested all the money into your DSLR kit and not bring at least some of it, but that's just my opinion. I've traveled abroad and always brought my DSLR, and I'm glad I did, despite lugging the gear around (I went light, 7D w/50 + 10-22, but I was on the move a lot).
With that being said, I think that your 50 and 10-20 are the only two lenses I'd bring, unless you foresee a specific need for a telephoto lens. But it couldn't hurt to bring it anyway (you could leave it in the hotel room safe if you didn't want to carry it around).
As for bags, the 7DMH is what I'd bring. It will make for a nice bag to carry your gear while your out, as opposed to an awkward backpack (just picturing someone walking on the beach with a big black backpack is off-putting).

I think it will be just fine. Bring a cloth to wipe off snow just case. I once dropped my 5DII + 24-70 into deep snow, lens first, and it didn't slow it down. And if you shoot skiing, you might want something with a better AF like the D700 or Canon 1D MkIII.
