Uh, I'm afraid to find out. It is heavier than is ideal. My guess is around 30lbs (and that is without water -- sigh). I do plan to weigh it tho. I'll post when I find out.

It would be better in a pack with a frame, but I really like the PALS. Maybe the Kifaru Maurauder...

Thanks!

Not sure if these pics will work but here goes...

My EDC includes a photon II around my neck, Timex with compass, my keyring and my purse. In addition to comprehensive kits in my car, daytrip backpack and BOB, which always close by, these are with me at all times.

The "purse" is actually an ASOLO Metro. It's not very fashionable but it works for me. Here's a peak inside. (Come on, admit it, you always wanted to look in a woman's purse.)



Nothing special here. Just some extra batteries, a pencil and pen, my Blackberry & holder, bandaids for the kids, chapstick, usually a couple of snaplights, a Leatherman Wave, AMK Signal mirror, a couple of granola bars and a memory card with some important info on it and, of course, a wallet with id, etc.



More stuff inside:
-a Leatherman Wave with a AAA mag and extra battery in the sheath
-30SPC sunscreen with citronella
-my keyring with a Garrity mini light, whistle and a capsule with a couple of matches and a candle
-kleenex

Emerg Kit: (in an AMK ultralight bag)
-emerg blanket
-DR PSK (enhanced with a couple of condoms to carry water)
-a bottle of Advil
-a couple of maxi pads (GREAT pressure bandages!)
-a couple of bandanas
-2 mini bics
-a firesteel and striker
-a CRKT folder
-brass wire
-wire saw (yes, we've melted one before!)

AMK Field First Aid Kit - enhanced with extra bandaids, a mini maxi pad, allergy meds, mini light, condom, and some extra gauze pads.

And there's also a keyring with at least a mini flashlight, SAK, lighter and whistle in my jacket pocket.

Nope. I'm pretty sure if I peeked in DW's purse my face would melt just like the guys at the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark. There are dimensions in there I dare not explore.

LOL! I don't think mine is a typical purse. You may be wise to resist!

Hey guys,
How do I get the pics themselves to show on the message page?
Can anyone help a newbie out.
Thanks

bacpacjac,
The contents of your purse may be more typical than you think. I carry pretty much the same thing except I have a few extras like a small crank flashlight, 2 handwarmers, the smallest umbrella I could find , (2) 1 gallon sized ziploc baggies and a large trash bag. In the winter I have to carry more handwamers. You'd be surprised how handy those are.

"...you always wanted to look in a woman's purse..."

Over the years I searched/inventoried a lot of women's purses. They run the gamut from boring to VERY interesting...
