I missed the original addition of a pad to the list:( I carry a very old Thermarest Backpackerlite that weighs 1# 10oz...I use it in both tents and in the hammock plus it forms the backpad in the Golite Trek...the weird thing is that, old as it is, it's still lighter than any other full length, rectangular pad now made by Thermarest...

I'm just now starting to lighten my pack, so right now the list looks like:

Moutainsmith Phantom: 52.2 oz (w/o top pocket)
Marmot Trestles 15 long: 58.7 oz
Thermarest 3/4: 26.4 oz (not sure of the model)
Eureka Zeus EXO 2: 67.8 oz (w/ stakes and poles)

Total: 205.1 oz or 12.82 lbs

I guess its a good starting point. I've been looking at sewing a Ray-Way Quilt (can't afford a WM bag right now on my college budget ) and either sewing a tarp or just buying one (I really like the Oware cat tarps). Maybe a GG Torso Nightlite as well, I find I sleep as well on a closed cell as I do the Thermarest, so I figure I'll just shave the weight. I'll keep the pack for now until I'm done replacing everything else. If anyone has any other affordable alternatives I'd be happy to hear them too.

Finally got a few details ironed out and now I can post in this thread.

Pack: GG VT size L 34oz.
Shelter: GoLite Hut2 31oz. (including stuff sack, stakes and poles)
Bag: Big Agnes Horse Thief 27oz.
Pad: Big Agnes Insulated Air Core 23oz.

Total: 115 oz. or 7.18lbs.

The pad is a bit of a splurge but real comfy. Still not to bad for someone over 40lbs total just 6 months ago.

Pack: GG Nimbus Ozone 3 Lb 0 oz
Tent: Hilleberg Akto 3 lb 5 oz (complete)
Bag: WM Alpinlite Super (long) 2 lb 1 oz
Pad: BA Insul Air Core (long) 1 lb 7 oz

Total: 9 lb 13 oz
