    I'll update mine and get it posted, but it'll be a little while. It doesn't copy well from excel so I'll have to type it.

    25contender, FWIW look at your base weight....the big three of pack, sleeping, and shelter. Your pack is 7 lbs 10 oz, sleeping is 4 lbs 13 oz, shelter is 3 lbs 4 oz. Your total base weight is 15 lbs 11 oz.

    My base weight:

    Pack - Paradox Packs Evolution 4800 with Hydration Talon - 3 lbs 13 oz

    Sleeping - Neoair Large- 19 oz, Granite Gear Thinlite pad regular - 3.6 oz, Enlightened Equipment Rev X Quilt Large/Wide - 28 oz Total 3 lbs 2.6 oz

    Shelter - Seek Outside LBO with vestibule, stakes, and pole - 36 oz / 2 lbs 4 oz

    Total Base Weight with this setup is 9 lbs 3.6 oz. If I swap out a trekking pole for the tent pole then it's multiuse and I can remove 5-6 oz. I can also take a lighter sleeping pad, or take a Paradox Unaweep 4800 at 3 lbs 3 oz to drop weight, but I'm pretty comfortable with that gear.

    My base weight is almost 6 lbs lighter than yours. That alone would get you really close to your goal of under 50 including bow.

    Look at your water filtration...what are you using now - Hiker Pro, Sweetwater?

    You've got a lot of clothing. Wool is great because it doesn't stink after days, which is an opportunity to reduce redundancy. Puffy vests and jackets add a lot of warmth for little weight.

    The multitool...9 oz? Look at a channellock 424 and a good knife. A Mora and the channellocks would weigh less than your current multitool.

    Something to remember guys, don't pack to achieve a certain weight. Pack the most efficient systems for the hunt on hand.

    That is right. I was comfortable with what I packed in last year for where I was hunting and how long I was in for. 7-10 days of a 14 day hunt. I did have to pack back to the truck and get some food on day 8. But then I was good for another week.I like to be comfortable since I am normally in for two weeks at a time. I find it easier to pack in a few extra cloths and a little more food then have to pack all the way out for cloths. Love this stuff!!.
