This is my current running list of gear I used on the Oregon Coast Trail and will likely use most of this again on the Pacific Crest Trail. Using Lighterpack, I am sitting at 9.62lb base weight (my total pack weight minus water, fuel and food) this puts me right under the line of what is considered "ultralight".
