    That doesn't sound too overpacked. What did that kit end up weighing?

    I'm 6', 200+morethanIcaretosay. I wear things loose, so my clothes are big. It was pretty full. I can't really say how much it weighed, but it really didn't bulge. It wasn't exactly light, but I walked the length of PHX Airport with the backpack straps out because I had nothing better to do for an hour and it wasn't too bad. I probably should've titled the thread more accurately, like "How to Overpack for 4 Days of Golf at Your Parents, Who Have a Washer and Dryer, Using an Aeronaut."
    Western Flyer (Crimson); 4Z Brain Cell; Swift (wife); Empire Builder (Black/Steel/Wasabi); Aeronaut (Black/Steel); Side Effect (Black), 3D Cube (Olive); lots of cubes/pouches/kit; Synapse (Navy/Solar); Smart Alec (Cardinal/Steel)
