    I'll go first.

    With 2 of us including water, salt and one rifle we were exactly 102lbs 6 ounces. This is for ~10 days. I think I could drop that a few lbs but at the sacrifice of some comfort.

    I use a wilderness wanderer , for 10 days, around 60lbs not including rifle. lots of sox is the key. Change em every morning. Smart wool over cotton liners. NO blisters at all.

    I use horses but I pack about 30lbs on my day trips remember a full body cape with horns and every ounce of meat will be 110-130lbs for thinhorns anyway. When you pack one out by yourself you hurt for days but man its worth it!!!

    40 lbs, that's pretty light,its the right idea but what do you leave behind to obtain that low net?I went on a fly in 10 day backpack trip, and I'll be honest with you,I packed and unpacked and weighed and reweighed that flippin wilderness wanderer so many times that I thought my wife was going to have a fit !Still could not leave enough stuff behind to break 55lbs!!

    I've dreamed about a 40 lb pack. So far it's never turned to reality. The best I've done is 55 lbs all in. I know how I could shave 2-3 more pounds, but that would cost another 400-600 bucks and a little less comfort.

    PS. Never skimp on socks. If your feet are dry & comfortable ALL the time, 60% of the battle is won.
