I started with Colin Fletcher, too. That was a long time and a lot of
miles ago. I highly recommend his philosophy and I like the way he writes,
but his equipment list results in 70# packs. Not recommended for
thruhikers unless they weigh in at 280# or more. For long distance
hiking, I was taught that pack weight shouldn't exceed 25% of body
weight. It works for me.
In any case, I sent my pack list to both of them on the backchannel -
don't want to be wasting bandwidth on the list.
