    If you are shooting for a light load like that, you could go with a much lighter frameless pack, like the ULA Ohm or GoLite Jam. They weigh a whole lot less than 40 oz, and usually cost about the same.

    Just for the record i haven gotten the pack yet but i figure ill get a osprey exos 58.
    Frameless packs make me nervous granted i have never used one but im concerned about weight distribution if i need to do some canyoneering or something that will require a heavier load. u know of anywhere online where i can rent frame-less packs to see how they work.

    The Osprey Exos is a GREAT pack. Can't go wrong there. But, the Gossamer Gear Mariposa and ULA OHM 2.0 are both under 30 ounces and do have internal frame struts that'll handle the base load you're shooting for.

    As far as gear, it's looking pretty good. As I read it, I had the following thoughts:
    - What temps will you be in? If it drops much below 35 or so at night, I'd consider a beanie and possibly lightweight gloves.
    - Rain Gear is missing a listed weight.
    - Any thoughts on a bear bag? Even if bears aren't a major issue, it's often nice to hang things away from critters. That'd add about 4-6 ounces for a light-weight one.
    - A camera is sometimes nice to bring.

    As a point of sharing/reference, the following is my current lightweight list for 3-season backpacking here in Colorado. It'll take me down to about 20 degrees and could maybe go a touch lower. It includes a more robust first-aid/repair kit than you have here (and probably more than most need). I hike almost exclusively with my family or the boy scouts, so I like to take a bit extra in those areas.

    Add toilet paper, tooth paste and a tooth brush, please. You may well be more disciplined then I am, but a few baggies of various sizes, a couple of stuff sacks, line for bagging, BIC mini-lighter usually find their way into my pack. Looks like you've missed the weight of a few things, like rain gear. Are stakes and tarp lines included.

    I love doing this stuff but my brain cramps after trying to get everything written down and weighed. I feel another one coming on just thinking about your list. Good luck!

    I like using geargrams.com. You only have to weigh and input once and then you can make as many different gear lists as you want. Makes it a little easier on my brain.
