Updated 1/16/17, post-PCT hike. If you’re interested in what I got rid of/replaced, I’ll be making an article on that shortly (in short I got rid of ~3lbs of stuff). Also no, I don’t carry a stove. I need to update that with a weight on a peanut butter jar that I soak my food in, but since I don’t just have one on hand it’s gonna have to wait. I also need to weigh a couple micro usb cords. In all a couple things aren’t listed and they’re largely inconsequential.

This list is constantly in flux as I get rid of more and more stuff.
