I know most folks/hikers here on Massdrop are not sub-2268 hikers, so just consider this some inspiration (or insanity on my part, your choice lol) but either way, I thought I would share a sub 4 pound setup I used on a recent hike.
The complete gear list is available at:
BPW: 1705 g / 3.76 lb
FSO: 4054 g / 8.94 lb (minus food/water)
I welcome any questions you might have.
Here is an ~11 minute video that shows my gear setup for the hike.
(fyi: i have five+ years experience of hiking with sub 5 pounds of gears, in nearly every type of weather condition, and have written about it for the entire time at hikelighter.com - it is not something I think the average hiker should do, and firmly believe that the 'sweet spot' is around the 6.5 pound mark. and please, keep the sub 2268 criticism to a minimum, that is not what things are about here at massdrop/talk... let us not have this place turn into how things pretty much everywhere else have)
