I certainly have a decent collection of bags I've gotten over the years and this is what has been my preference for a few years - pretty minimal. During air travel if bringing several lenses I have an old rolling Pelican bag that would carry all the items you list. It's held up well and I have zero complaints. The Pelican is my main bag for storage at home.
This is what I've started doing. Jim has the backpack, I have the camera on a Peak Design shoulder strap on my should. Extra lens and battery holder goes into Jim's backpack.

He's complained much less since I went mirrorless.

Thanks all for chiming in. Carrying in the park is not really an issue. The Peak actually works well, and I have Peak Design Capture clip that is on the shoulder strap that keeps my hands free but the camera close. And the pack has jackets, ponchos, etc. Laptop and iPad are safely in the safe back in the room. I'm really talking about the flight trip and transporting to location.

I'm almost considering the new Peak travel backpack with a Camera bundle bag, for transport, and then the Everyday as my day pack. I've got a few months to continue searching and researching. So we'll see what happens.

As for going Mirrorless....not happening anytime soon. Too happy with my 5D, and too invested in $$$ at this point. If its this hard to switch bags, switching to mirrorless FF is definitely a non-starter. And that could be some serious Points Add ons....

I find the glass is much heavier than the camera so going mirrorless made my load smaller but not that much lighter.

Anymore I seldom take my camera into the park, phone photography has become good enough for me. When I do take it then I usually have it on a PD strap cross body with the camera behind me in the small of my back.

I used to have a Canon 6D and then went mirrorless. I managed to finance the switch by swelling off my FF gear. I ended up going with Sony's aspc line (a6500) because I didn't want the weight and size of mirrorless. I was leaving stuff behind in the room, which kind of negates the point of having an interchangeable lens camera!

If you're happy with the 5D, absolutely zero need to switch to mirrorless FF as you'll not save that much in size or weight.

There are some things I miss about about FF, but the a6500 is so good it has well been worth the switch. If I were a more serious hobbyist or earned income from photography (even a small amount) then the calculus would be different.

I'm actually slightly kicking myself for not going Fuji instead of Sony, but looking back at my photos since the switch, no real reason to disappointed. The problem with camera gear (and bags), there is always something different that it appealing!
