Yo! I did the JMT in the first two weeks of sept in 98. I am doing
againg during sept this year. Last time I took only a fleece jacket,
patagonia lightweight capiline, a stocking cap, and a rain suit.
(plus shorts and a polypro shirt, running shoes, socks, and a hat.)
My whole pack weighed about 14lbs without food and water.
This year, I have whittled everything down to about 6-7 lbs,
including food, but not water. I am taking a marmot microchill
fleece t-shirt, polypro shirt, nylon shorts, running shoes, socks,
patagonia dragonfly rain jacket (3oz!!!), modified mountain hardware
rain pants (5 oz), a balaclava, and thin gloves.
I will not be doing much lounging around or sitting in camp, so I
expect to either be in a sleeping bag or walking. If you plan on
doing more leisure activities, you may need more clothes.
Last time I did the JMT in sept, it rained 9 of 10 days. so IMHO, be
prepared for some rain!
Hope that helps.
