Download this excel spreadsheet to calculate your pack weight by adding the totals of each item. A digital scale will be most helpful when using the spreadsheet. The spreadsheet breaks down pack contents by section as well gives totals for base weight, base weight plus consumables, and total skin out weight. Measurements can be added in grams or ounces and will automatically be converted to pounds. This spreadsheet is heavily based off of Mike Clelland's (Author of Ultralight Backpackin' Tips) spreadsheet.
***Items pre-loaded in spreadsheet are examples only. Please refer to the NW Backpacking checklist for items you may want to consider for your hike.***
