Broke out the scale (I had to go buy 9v lithium batteries to power it, $25 for a pair!) and weighed all of my stuff up for a summer touring configuration and it weighs in at 22 pounds.  Not bad.

That is "dry" weight and does not include food, water, and fuel.

Spring or fall or cooler weather probably kicks the weight up very slightly by a pound or two, mostly in additional clothing and most of the weight would get added to the front.

Front carry is approximately ten pounds and rear carry is twelve, which is a reasonable weight distribution.
