I’m not to good at making spread sheets (if anyone wants to send me one I will fill it out). Anyway here is a 3 season, 10 day trip list.
Cook set: 33 oz This is everything from fuel to the water filter.
Sleeping: 102.32 oz Includes tent, pad, quilt, pillow, tent steaks and guy lines
Utility: 67.2 first aid, bug stuff, lotion, sunblock, fire kit, flashlight, toiletries, camera, knife, multi tool, chair, soap.
Pack: 31 oz
I don’t carry a lot of clothes, usually just 5 pairs of darn tough socks, sock liners, 2 pair of long underwear, one long sleeve shirt and two pair of underwear, one t shirt. All the cloths are wool or tri blend.
I know its hard to pick apart without a list. Sorry about that. I weighed the pack and it came in at 14.6 lbs with everything. 10 days of food is usually around 10 lbs for me and I carry 3 liters of water (have never completely recovered from heat stroke I got years back).Jan 28, 2018 at 5:54 pm #3514953

A lot of folks use
for their pack list needs.
That is a lot of clothes. Definitely need more detail for the crowd here to rip apart. In a good way.
Read this thread,
Check all the links that Link provides.Jan 28, 2018 at 7:36 pm #3514990
Ok here is the list
I would like lighter boots but I need the stiffness for my ankle. I know there are lighter hydration systems but being able to blow that one up acts like a support in the pack. I like the chair, I’ve had chair envy:)
I’m willing to give any advice a go at least one time thoJan 28, 2018 at 9:20 pm #3515008

Ken, Thanks for posting the link to my links for beginners trying to cut weight, here are a couple more not on the list and an update on one of the videos
. Beginner backpackers: Start here || Advice, info, tips & resources from Andrew Skurka’s Blog
And for some reason in my newbie help link the Oregon Field Guide Ultralight Hiking video link is down so if you want to watch it(it is worth watching) HERE is another link for you so you can( it starts 8 min 30 sec. into the episode). Hope this will help with getting the weight down for you and welcome to BPL, Enjoy!

I love that episode… it shows him drinking from a puddle (“He claims he’s never gotten sick…”)
Then at the end he walks away and it shows Aquamira in his mesh pocket (18:34 in video) … oopsJan 28, 2018 at 9:50 pm #3515061
Haha.. I’ll look for it but when I got heat stroke I was drinking out of puddles then laying down in them. It was a long hike back to the truck and I’m glad I had the boys with me to carry my gear.Jan 29, 2018 at 11:53 am #3515425

Lint does treat his water on rare occasions he doesn’t talk about it in that video or give a gear list so for that you can watch Linthikes 2017 5lb Ultra light gear list .or Lint’s 2015 CDT ultralight gear list . These are just an example to help you see what is possible, you have to make your own decisions as to what you are comfortable with or without, a lot of weight can be saved by leaving unnecessary items behind but that has to be up to the individual.
