A few weeks ago I went to the AT and my pack weighed about 33lbs for just a 2 night stay which I think is too heavy but with a few changes I can get it down.
To start with, the Coleman sleeping pad I bought at Wal Mart that weight right at 3lbs was returned for the main reason it was very uncomfortable and I do not recommend them. Instead I went to REI and got a Big Agnes that weighs 22oz.
I bought new Ascend external frame pack that weights 7lbs, it would not adjust small enough to rest on my waist so I took it back. Went to REI and got one that weighs 3lbs.
I figured out I didn't need to take all of my Coleman anodized cookset but only 1 of the set.
Now that it's warmer I don't need my 25* Coleman mummy bag at 5.4lbs but now and use my Jr. sleeping that weighs a little over 2lbs. (I'm only 5'1'') or I can use my woobie.
I can also use my Eureka Solitare instead of the Half Dome.
I haven't packed and weighed it yet but I'm sure it will be a lot lighter.
What are some other tips to reduce pack weigh?
