So what would you folk reckon is LIght and still be very comfortable on tour.i just packed my rear panniers and with everything i need for a week's touring they weigh in at 4kg in each pannier plus 2.5 or so for tent. by the time i've everything sorted might just be another 1kg
so 11.5kg for a good touring load.
done my best to buy new gear that packs small and weighs little.cloths i kept to 1 change only ,cloths can weigh so much and bulky so 1 pair of pants 1 t shirt.my cycling jacket will double up i reckon as will my base layers.
i guess a few overnighters will let me know if i got things right or wrong.
