I have no idea how much my first pack weighed on my initial excursion into the BC....cheap 2 man tent and a borrowed llbean down bag...high tech fibers were scarce and not a lot of wool worn in Fla...only interest was not having to hike in and out every day to fish in the same locale....probably took way too many creature comforts...have packed in several times with my son who always claimed to be able to carry more than he could....big mistake on my part...did do an overnight trip once with nothing more than a ground cover, a sweat suit and a thin sleep closed foam pad...all was fine until the temps dropped way below the comfort zone....
