The above list is not all inclusive. Clothing should be selected to match the
weather whenever possible. For trips in the spring or fall dress in layers. To
determine the maximum weight you should carry divide your body weight
by .30 (30%). Remember that you will be responsible for carrying your
share of food and group gear.
Remember that the weight you carry is limited. It is critical to pack the least
amount of gear necessary for the trip. Be prepared to remove personal gear
at the weight-in if you are over the weight limit.
