I think those two concepts often go hand-in-hand, yes. Shaving off fraction of a gram often (always?) sacrifices an element of safety. We all have to balance pack weight against comfort and safety. Very hard to tell when it becomes "stupid," though. Glad you are safe and sound all the same! Good story/warning. Thanks for sharing.
