On the Haute Route, a 21-pound pack is over-inflated. At sixty-two well-used years, I submitted myself to random weight checks to remain sub-twenty pounds and passed most of them. Making the formula feasible are the huts and hotels which always appear just when you've had enough.
Must have in pack (my opinion): rain gear, apres-hike footwear, polypropylene shirt, warm hat, light gloves, snacks, sunglasses, sweater, long pants, band-aids, moleskin, other first-aid basics, sleeping sheet (if weight allows), water, map, paperback book, credit card, money, passport, extra socks, shorts, t-shirt.
