I’m finally done packing. Thought you might be interested in the final toll:
Total Backpack weight: 7.8 kg. This contains all my clothes, utilities, and most of the non-electronic gear.
Total shoulder-bag weight: 6.3 kg!!! I guess this will be emptied often as I’m unlikely to be carrying that around for long. For treks and long walks I can put a lot of the stuff in the backpack as there is still room. I just don’t trust a lot of this stuff to our beloved baggage handlers. 🙂
PS: The 2 litre drink bottle is added for size reference. 🙂
