Yeah, I guess we're not too far off. The difference being spare gloves, spare glasses, pressure gauge, epi pen, beer, flask, and earbuds. If it's jacket weather I'll usually start off wearing the jacket then strap it to the outside of my pack when I get too hot. I fully agree with your comment about first aid as well. I'm back and forth about what to carry... I have a couple nice smaller trauma packs with quikclot gauze, and of course a full size tourniquet for arterial bleeds, but I haven't been carrying them lately. I need to figure out what I really want and keep it on me. Trail first aid gear would be a great article in and of itself. There's definitely a balance to be struck between preparedness and too much gear.
