I see major "cheats" in the way people weigh their gear with the pack weight and worn items stuff.
Ive taken to adopting a formula where weight is considered to be FSO minus consumables.
I figure, it doesnt matter if the weight is in your pockets, around your neck, stuffed down into your sock, or in your backpack - you are carrying it regardless. Just saying "its in my pocket so it doesnt count" is a bit dishonest in my opinion. It takes the same effort to lug it in your pocket as it does in your backpack, so why pretend it isnt there?
I would count consumables as well but for the fact that they are in a constant state of flux. I generally only consider food and water to be "consumable", not bug pro or sunscreen or toothpaste. Those weights dont change fast enough to realistically be considered a consumable in the same class as food and water, not in my opinion at least, and as such I think counting those as "consumable" is another bit of dishonesty. Especially when people count the total weight of those items as being "consumable", not just the contents.
Course, thats just my 2 pesos and may or may not answer your question... but hey, I tried. :)
