    I have a Vapor Trail too .... as well as a Nimbus Lattitude ..... great packs.

    I don't understand the issue then ..... once you deploy this gear you still have a pack full?

    My most typical set up:

    Pack: Arc'teryx Needle 35 = 3# 2 oz.
    Tent: Black Diamond Beta Lite = 1# 3 oz.
    Bag: WM Hooded Aspen = 2#
    Pad: Therma rest Prolite 4 full length. 1# 8 oz.

    total: 7 lbs, 13 oz.
    Weights provided by respective manufacturers. In truth, my pack weighs more cuz i have a knife and compass mounted to it... Also, my "tent" (a floorless tensile tarp) has a "mosquito skirt" sewn into the perimeter to keep the bugs off me. I probably weigh in at more than 8.5 # considering modifications.

    My AT Section or Thru-hike big four:

    Granite Gear Vapor Trail 2 lbs
    Golite Ultra 20 quilt 20 oz
    MYOG Momentum Bivy, 6.5 oz
    MLD Cuben ponchotarp, 3.9 oz

    3.9 lbs

    Also .... I've found that using a Gossamer Gear Nightlight 3/4 pad, AND the Torso pad at the same time, makes for a VERY comfy night's sleep for about 12 oz.

    Default I'm there...

    Ok - after some trial, error and $$$ I'm where I want to be....

    Pack: ULA Catalyst - 2 lb 15 oz
    Bag: Mont Bell SS #2 Long - 2 lb
    Tent: Six Moon Designs Lunar Duo - 3 lb
    Pad: Gossamer Gear NightLight 3/4 - 8 oz

    Total: 8 lbs 7 oz

    I splurged and went for the Lunar Duo over the Lunar Solo - it's worth the extra pound to have all that floor space.

    (I do not have the tent yet)

    Hilleberg Atko - 53oz
    Jansport Big Bear 5000 - 62oz
    Marmot Helium - 29oz
    BA Insulated Air Core - 21oz

    Total= 165oz or 10.3lbs

    I plan on getting a ULA Catalyst very soon. That would knock me down to:
    148oz or 9.2lbs.

    I still consider this pretty heavy (compared to you guys atleast ) But thats sleeping in comfort in winter. For summer I plan on using a Tarptent and havent decided on bag yet. I know there are many ways to get that 9lbs down to about 6 easily but I like to sleep comfortable.

    If you mean $ wise. Those items were $110 / $250 / $205 / $18 = $583

    If you check my TJ you can see the gear that makes up the 3 pound base weight for this years LT.
    For the Colorado Trail the base is going to be a bit heavier and will probably end up at or just over 5 pounds since I'm taking a heavier pack (10.5 oz), a bivy, a warmer bag, an Icebreaker shirt, and a camera.

    To answer the question below. Up until this year I've carried at least a partial change of clothes for when I got to civilization and had a shower. I've decided that was a waste, so now carry only a change of socks. Other than the clothes you saw on the TJ, I may take a cap (1.6 oz) since it's handy in the sun and under the rain cape, and also the same old buff. I honestly don't like "luxury items", probably because I view them in terms of weight.
