Yes, my base weight without food or water for a 3-day trip is right under 7 pounds. Below is a link that lists all base gear and food (consumable weight). You will see the total pack weight start at 17.5lbs with all worn clothing, gear, food and water. Removing the clothing puts the pack at 13lbs. This includes a 10' 8.5' tarp, sleeping bag, mat, hammock, and gear for the dog as well.

Every item in my backpack, individually weighed: https://lighterpack.com/r/c6311a

I have spent nearly 8 years refining my gear, so it does take time to test what works and what does not. I continue to invest in lighter gear as it's released, and the cycle continues to repeat itself. I sell a lot of my gently used gear on Craigslist to help fund the obsession. Cheers!

Happy to help answer questions or provide some insight based on your setup.
