> Mike S, the next step is diving into your gear with a scissors to cut off all those heavy labels and excess straps...
When you start cutting, keep everything you cut off in a ziplock bag. I have a zip lock bag of tags, straps, and trash I have cut off that now weighs 50 g. Unfortunately my tag/trash bag is incomplete b/c I didn't start saving them from the beginning.
When people (justifiably?) make fun of me for cutting extra garbage off stuff, I hand them my collection and tell them they are welcomed to pack it if they want.
