This is the set up I go with when my wife and dog come along - thus the need for the Rainshadow...

Pack: ULA Circuit - 32 oz
Bag: WM MegaLite - 26 oz
Pad: InsulMat Max Thermo (reg. mummy) - 22 oz
Shelter: TT Rainshadow 2 - 41 oz

Total: 121 oz. or ~7.5 lbs

If I go solo, I will probably substitute the Rainshadow with a homemade poncho/tarp like the one DancingLight Gear makes (10 oz), a small bug net for my head from DancingLight Gear (2.25 oz), and a silnylon groundsheet with drawstring (6.5 oz). This drops the weight to 98.75 oz or ~6.2 lbs. Might even go with a lighter/smaller pack, too, which weighs around a 1lb. and will drop the weight by that amount as well.

(all weights are from my accurate scale)

GG Vapor Latitude - 42 oz
TarpTent Cloudburst 2 - 40 oz
WM MegaLite - 27 oz (long model)

Total for the big three = 6 pounds 13 oz

If you want to add my pad - REI Lite-Core 1.5 Pad - 27 oz

Total for pack/shelter/sleep system = 8.5 pounds

The Cloudburst is on loan from my cousin, but it'll be a Double Rainbow as soon as they ship. That really shouldn't change weight much, maybe a few oz less. Right now my 3 season base wavers between 13 and 18 pounds depending on the trip and if I bring fishing gear, camera, or other toys.

Tent: Six Moon Design Europa 05/heavy floor option 37 oz
Bag: Bozeman Mountain Works (Nunatak) Arc - X down quilt 16 oz
Pad: Bozeman Mountain Works torsolite inflatable pad + Gossamer Gear Nightlight pad 13.5 oz (10 oz + 3.5 oz)
Pack: Gossamer Gear G5 7.8 oz

Total: 74.3 oz/4.64 lbs

I just realized that now my bag, tent and bag weigh less than 6 #'s

pack 2#'s: Golite Trek

bag 1# 3oz Western Mountaineering Summerlite

tent 2.5#'s Double Rainbow

or the 2 # Hennessy Backpacker Light Asym

That mean's I've reached my goal of getting the "Big 3" under 6 pounds! Wow, 7 years ago I didn't believe that possible...well, not possible and comfortable...I like my comfort...I want a large living area that protects me from the elements, a warm bag and a pack that doesn't make me hate backpacking....

and that's how I suggest lightening one's load

That's great! By the way, what do you carry for a sleeping pad?
