Load up with more cigars and throw those five other things away.Jul 13, 2020 at 8:56 am #3657935David ThomasBPL Member

Looks great. Everything from the Big 3 (it appears you sleep cold?) to most all of the little items. Without the bear can, you’d be under 8 pounds BW.
Your lighter is listed as 1 ounce. A mini-Bic is 11 grams.
Your bandana or hat could function as a pot cozy.
There are lighter sunglasses.
It’s summer, the days are long and the nights are short. Sometimes I’ll only bring a 10-gram, $10, 40-lumen NiteCore Tube.
I’ll skip the philosophical discussion about whether a phone is “worn weight” or not.
Lots of grow operations in the Sierra foothills – you could find something to smoke instead of carrying 3 ounces of cigars.Jul 13, 2020 at 4:07 pm #3658005Nick GatelBPL Member

Oh, no! Your base weight shows 10.04 lbs. You’re not ultralight!!
You must remove at least 0.05 ounces from your pack immediately.
However, I noticed you included your cigars in your base weight. These actually weigh zero, because they are consumables and don’t count against base weight. So now you are officially UL. Good job. Just make sure you don’t put your cell phone inside your pack, it will put your BW over 10lbs make hiking much more difficult.
Of course, all in jest. It looks like a good list
