For typical 3 season use up here:

Pack: MEC Guide's(50l) - 56.38
Shelter: HS Cloudburst - 43
Sleeping: MEC Raptor -7c Down - 42.29 Pad -TR 3/4 - 25

Total: 10.42lb

Summer overnighter
I can subsitute my pack for the MEC Genie(30l) @ 16.92 - dropping the weight to - 7.95lbs - and/or drop the Cloudburst and use a MEC 7' x 9' Scout tarp(15.44) for a total of - 6.23lbs

Before I started to 'lighten up' my total would typically have been - 23.42lbs -OUCH!

How about my Have/Want list? =)

Tent:
Have: 2person bivy, no name, 48oz (not 3 season - fairweather tent)
Want: TarpTent Rainbow w/ floor, 30oz

Pack:
Have: Home-made G4, 22oz
Want: Golite Trek, 30oz

Sleeping Gear:
Have: lightweight Sleeping Bag, 20oz
cut-to-size Z-Rest, 8oz
Want: still researching... thinking 20 degree bag, less than <1.5lbs.
will keep the Z-Rest, and retrim, <8oz

So, totalling: Have: 98oz, Want: 92oz

This is sort of misleading, because the stuff I had before was intended for Florida 3-season gear - it served me well, and was great for a summer out west, but I had to pull out a heavier sleeping bag at Bryce because I was just too cold. The tent was adequate, it didn't leak, but it collected condensation something awful here in Florida, and the wind was rough on it out west. I ended up normally not using a tent. I don't want to have to bring 'extras' this year, though, so I want some real 3-season stuff.

Reality and All,

Thanks for this thread. I was thinking I was carrying far too much but in looking at the scheme of things I'm not doing too bad at all..

Solo
WM Caribou MF Long 21oz
Hubba Hubba 49oz
Atmos 50 33oz
Including Z-rest or PL3 20oz OOOPS make that a Ridge Rest....

Total 122oz, 7.6 pounds

Even if I go with my Aether 90 as usuall at 78oz I only carry 1/3rd of the tent about 30 oz I'm still only at 148oz, 9.25 pounds. May have to splurge and carry the PL4 year round!

With any luck I got the math right, but figure if not I will certainly be corrected.

Ma.... you just ain't human. ;-) and I am envious.

Anyway, this thread started my day off right. Thanks ALL!

soon to be...

ULA Catalyst pack (being made as we type): 43 oz.
WM Ultralite bag: 26 oz.
Big Agnes Insulated Air Core: 25 oz.
homemade silnylon tarp (incl. poles, etc.): 19 oz. (?)

Total: 7 lb. 1 oz.

Now, if only I could sleep on a little blue pad, didn't need to carry a bear can, and hiked at sea level I could gain some real bragging rights. The scenery in the Sierras is worth it though.
