@Philreedshikes haha! My pack weight isn't always that heavy, but depending on the excursion (if there is technical rock work involved, if I have to carry all of my water for the entire trip, how much camera gear I am bringing, for a few examples), and if I am carrying gear for others (or extra gear in case of emergencies in group settings), my pack can easily become that heavy!
