So admittedly reading through this thread made me curious so I went and checked. My EDC bag, at minimum loading. is 9.8lbs. That does not include a laptop as I have a separate bag for that with a separate loadout when required. I manage to get an IFAK, WIHA tool kit, a quart of water in a canteen, gloves, poncho, etc etc etc in there at under 10lbs with plenty of room to spare for the occasional add.
