This will be my first year using a scale, I bought a budget one off Amazon and hope it’s fairly accurate. I usually just went off of posted weights to get an idea and never laid it all out before. I will try to get at home numbers on my scale, an asterisk by the weight will mean it’s going off a posted weight still.
I rarely will pack it all on a trip but here is all the weights for what I may generally combine.

All of the gear listed above puts me at around 50 pounds if I were to pack every bit of it into my pack which is totally manageable but I will never be packing all of it on my back at once.
I will keep this updated constantly throughout the year with any changes and as I get the last few things tossed on the scale!
