Thanks for the comments.
Regarding the Mica: On a recent trip at about the coldest I'll be at with this list, I had my baselayer (MH Wool Shirt) a BPL Beartooth hoody and the Mica over top, combined w/ a pair of possumdown gloves this was nice to about 30-35*, so an insulating layer isn't needed for me.
The 2 sets of Gaiters: I've had issues with sand getting in my shoes and causing horrible blisters/abrasions on my feet, therefore I always wear the Dirty Girl gaiters, the other ones are knee high and mainly to protect my lower legs from the local flora, as nearly all of it is pointy, and I've got 2 tattoos that I'd rather not get scratched into illegibility.
The headlight and frying pan lid:
I hadn't considered these before, definitely something to look into, thanks
First aid: I'm sure there's somewhere to cut a few ounces here, not sure till I scrub it though
Screwdriver: it'll be removed when I change trekking poles (useful for tightening up the BD flicklocks)
How exactly does one repackage bodyglide?
Yeah, it's probably a bit overkill on the soap.
Yeah, nixing the cup would be nice, but it's also how I measure water.
The side pockets on the Exos already carry 2 liters of water in gatorade bottles
Trowel: sticks here either have thorns or have been scavenged by people insisting on fires
GPS is kind of a comfort item, I use the map & compass more often, but the GPS is there as a safety net and to double check my land nav skills
Yeah, spare batteries probably shouldn't be needed, but they're kinda like the first aid, I'd rather carry the 3.2 ounces and have it in case I need it.
Thanks again for the input.
