something I'm still working on is the weight.
Pack - 85 liters 6lbs
JRB MW 3 - 1.5 lbs
Food - 3.5lbs (I take a little extra just in case)
Water - 4-5lbs (3liter bladder + 1 liter aluminum Sigg) (I take a little extra just in case)
Crazy cooking kit, bongo, fuel line, fuel - 3lbs
sleeping bag - 3.5lbs
WB black bird + superfly - 4lbs
medkit, notebook, headlamp, led small flashlight, tooth brush kit, glasses, contact solution - 4-5lbs
rain gear - 2lbs
extra clothes - 2-3lbs
water filter - 1.5 lbs
Right there is about 37lbs
I was going to use my 65 liter pack (REI Flash) but my winter sleeping bag is mega bulky and it was getting tough to put in extra clothes and food in the pack so I had to go with the heavier pack that I have. Its only 3lbs more.
I'm getting my summer back down to about 20lbs since I dont need that much clothing and my summer sleeping bag is half the weight
