Handgun with extra mag...one mag is enough and a light weight handgun for me. Northface Tadpole tent #5, and Osprey Ather 70 backback- #5.4. I use chemiclas to treat my water. Have a UV light but heavy and need to recharge light.Jaron said:5# pack, 5.5# tent, handgun with extra mag, and my water filter is 15# right there. I may be remembering incorrectly and including food and water in that 30 pounds. Never-the-less, my goal this year is to get my pack weight as light as possibly without sacrificing comfort. Thought about getting a lighter tent but I like mine too much to replace it.
