It sounds like I should be learning from you! My total pack weight could be reduced quite a bit if I was willing to sacrifice a bit of comfort. For example, I could shave some serious weight if I made the move to a tarp in place of my ultralight tent (or my hammock) or swapped out my sleeping bag for a quilt or blanket. But to me those comforts are worth the extra weight on the trail.
