Emirates only allows 1 carryon with dimensions of 22x15x8 and 7 kg or 15 lbs. They don't allow a personal item (or I can't find it if they do)! I'm going on safari and need to keep my weight low, but not give the airlines a chance to lose critical items--cameras, binoculars, malaria and other medications, etc. I have a backpack that fits (barely) into a Tom Bihn shop bag. I also have another larger canvas bag that holds it more readily--giving me space for a small handbag, book, water bottle, etc. (Next the problem will be 15lbs). When I get to my seat I'd put the backpack overhead and put my safari hat in the bag along with my sidekick and other seat items and put those under the seat in front of me. I board with one bag and separate at my seat--keeping my safari had clean as an added bonus. Would this work?

I believe you need to check with the Airline that you will be travelling on. More and more airlines are being strict with luggage and carry-on's lately. As far as I know, airlines allow 1 carry on plus 1 personal item bag, and the 7 kg ruling and dimensions applies.
Some airlines in Asia is now applying a 1 carry-on ruling.

It is OK to place a small bag inside a larger one as long as the larger one then meets the airline's size and weight limits, if that's what you're asking. Whether you can separate them at your seat and place the larger overhead and the smaller under the seat in front of you depends on the airline's rules. There are some airlines and some fares that don't allow the use of the overhead compartment without an extra charge.

On the surface, I don't see why putting two small bags into one larger one wouldn't be allowed, as long as the large bag still meets all the rules.
