I'm curious to how much your packs weigh with everything in it minus food and water. I have taken a few things out to get the weight down. A few things I have weigh more than I would like them but its about comfort. Like my sleeping bag - Its good to -20C but weighs a bit more. I might get rid of some of my luxuries ... but that includes my camera and such small electronic things. I don't really wanna give those up.
