    Does anyone have a breakdown of the items they pack into the backcountry? I'm looking to reduce my weight of approximately 30lbs. I dont have s scale, so i use the manufactures specs. Looking for the item and weight. Here is what i have. Would love to see someone from Eastman's list.

    what's wrong with your list now? I don't really see how you could cut that much further except lighter pack and less water. 30lbs is pretty light already.

    I recently bought the same pack and really like it. have been doing 3 mile conditioning walks through the hills with 45lbs in it every other night and it handles the weight really well. That said, you could drop some weight there. I like the J34 better than many of the lighter packs because it gives you the option of packing meat to camp right away, and out with camp sometimes. If you don't plan to do that you could drop 3-3.5lb by going to a lighter soft pack.

    I think your list looks good, but I'm new to backpacking. My list is currently under construction and heavier than yours, but I'm also trying to trim it down.

    My gear list reads real similar to yours. A few different brand names but only one big change. I went away from the tent and footprint and went to a bivy sac. Mine is 1.94lbs and replaces my tent and footprint. I do add a siltarp at 0.51lbs if I'm going for more than 5 days or into the high alpine where I expect bad weather.
    People in SUV's and suburbs will kill more game animals than a man with a bow, ever could.

    Look at the badlands sacrifice. You will save a few pounds. Other than that you are not going to loose anything worth weighing. Your pack of 30 pounds is really light. Mine weighed about 46 last year going into the Rubies.
