I figure that if you start including food and water the whole notion of comparing gear weights becomes meaningless. Consumables are too variable day to day or even hour to hour. On a longish tour there may be a day here or there where I need to carry more than 24 hours worth of water and most days I never have more than two regular sized water bottles and one of the winds up empty much of the day.

Food weight is similarly variable, but not quite to the same extreme.
