I already have the pack, sleeping bag, and base layer. All the other stuff I plan to pick up progressively.
I plan on using this gear for trips in the midatlantic in late spring, summer, and early fall.
For my dry sacks, what size for all four should I get and will I need to put my pot and stove with my food when I hang it out at night.

I'm noticing many unnecessary doubles on your list:
*Why a Campmor poncho and Driducks suit? Is the poncho your shelter?
*Personally, I'd dump the dry sacks and get a trash compactor bag and save $$$ and weight to keep your gear dry.
*Why a 1L canteen and a Camelbak?
*If all you're lighting is your stove, I'd dump the backup fire starter and take either the magnesium striker or the bic; both will light a Snowpeak stove with just sparks.
*What is your shelter?
*When bear-bagging, I usually hang my pot as well (but not my stove)

I'll probably get rid of either the poncho or suit i don't know yet. I was thinking that I would use the suit when it was kind of cold and poncho in the summer. I was thinking a 1L canteen for filling up the camelbak. Your right on the fire starter, I'll probably just take the bic. And right now, I won't be carrying the tent, another person in my group will be.

Clay good start- I hope the sub kilo works out- here are a couple of my thoughts on how you might shave some weight and save a lot of money in the long run.

>Running shorts<
No need unless you use it for a swimming suit

>Under Armour synthetic TS<
No need you are already wearing one and you have the wool base layer below

>North Face Fleece< If you haven't bought this already there are much lighter options for the same cost- Montbell down inner jacket 6.9 oz. You can get one off gear swap.

>Omni-wool base layer top
Omni-wool base layer bottom<
I would just wear these and not have any of the Under Armour, leave all the UA at home and if you haven't bought the columbia shirt yet- get the BPL Thorofare instead!

>4 Dry Sacks<
Ditto on the compactor bag, maybe a drybag for hanging, but you can make a silnylon stuff sack for cheap, and it is lighter.

>Big Agnes insulated AirCore Pad<
This is a heavy pad! You are better off with their lighter un-insulated version (Clear View). When necessary carry a thin closed cell pad, this would be lighter and better.
View Clear View here ClearView

>Nalgene widemouth canteen 1L<
These things weigh 4 to 5 oz's, go with a gatorade bottle they are 1.7 oz. and are free!

>Camelbak 100oz<
When full you are carrying 6.52 pounds of water- If you are hiking in the desert you might need that much at a time but I bet water is more plentiful in WV. Use an old gatorade bottle or 2, it is way cheaper and easier to deal with.

>Snowpeak gigapower stove
Snowpeak 110g canister<
for short trips I would save the money and MYOG Alcohol stove. Or get the Caldera cone for your MSR Kettle.

>Adventure Medical Ultralight .9 first aid<
Make you own up, again far lighter and cheaper. Jason Klass has a video that might help.

Hope this is helpful.

What are the weights of each item?

Do you have a scale???

My only top is the columbia omni-dry silver ridge (maybe get the BPL one tad mentioned), a UA synthetic T-shirt in case it gets real hot, and my sleeping omni-wool. For pants, I just have the canyon pants and the omni-wool long jons. I wouldn't really consider the underwear a base layer.

And I don't have a scale yet, nor most of the items. But I'll definitely be looking for a nice inexpensive scale.
