Here is a pack list:

TIP: Pack light.  I have heard people recommend that pack weight be less than or equal to 1/5 or 20% of a person’s body weight.  A pack weighing 20 pounds or less for someone with a body weight of 100 pounds, 30-pound pack or less for someone weighing 150 pounds, a 40-pound pack or less for someone weighing 200 pounds, and so forth.

How does one pack light?

SHARE ITEMS  If in a group, share items such as a tent, a stove, trash bags, water containers, and such.

MINIMIZE CLOTHING:  Take only clothing that will be worn.  I usually take two swimsuits.  I wear one swimsuit on day 1, and at the end of the day I change into swimsuit #2.  While wearing swimsuit #2 I wash swimsuit #1 and then hang swimsuit #1 to dry.  Repeat the process for additional days.
