The Gendarme Path, Denmark 2021

I have hiked the Gendarme Path in South Denmark with my Wife and my two kids (10 and 12 years old) in our summer holidays in July 22-26, 2021. we had two tents with us. My wife and I carried one each. Everyone wore clothes, sleeping gear, food and water for their own use. Still missing: - Gloves - sun glasses - Hiking shoes - Ekstra Shorts / shorts for bathing - Down jacket - Breakfirst - Dinner - snacks Optimize Ideas: - Lighter Backpack. I have been looking at the Montane Trailblazer 44L. it weighs approx. 980 grams, and therefore saves me 1.037 grams compared to the Osprey Atmos AG65 without the top bag. I have also been looking at the Waymark Thru*. It weighs approx 737 grams with Fully Padded Hip-belt and hip pocket, and therefore saves me 1.280 grams compared to the Osprey Atmos AG65 without the top bag. - Lighter Tent. Ex. Zpacks duplex or Bonfus MID, 2 Persons* in DCF 0,75, spruce green. Weighs approx 440 grams including pack sack, and therefore saves me 1.271 grams compared to the MSR Hubba Hubba NX2 - minimize the tent. I don't have to bring everything - Consider if the The Sea to summit XL - bowl* is necessary. It can save 114 grams. - The Alu Mat can stay at home, which will save 99 grams. - The Stove can be replaced with something lighter, but not better. - Toilet paper - is a hole roll necessary? Half a roll, will save approx 50 grams. - A smaller Towel will save a little weight. - Rain jacket and Rain Pants must be replaced. Montbell Versalite jacket and pants* weighs approx. 273 grams, with will save 210 grams. The things marked with * will reduce the weight 2.875 grams, and bring the base weight down to 4.620,4 grams.
