Dude. You're well on your way. I wouldn't worry too much. Get on the trail, get hiking and you'll tinker around. Weight-wise...you're probably good to go, man. I will say....lose the liner...you'll get lazy on the trail. I have gotten that way..I wanted to use one but never found the energy to keep buying the compactor bags and never was committed enough to using a real pack liner.

Yeah everyone says you need a liner but supposedly my pack is close to waterproof so hopefully if i keep my sleeping bag and clothes in drysacks i should be good to go without one.
