No pan handle (40g) - use gloves - worked fine on the Polaris.

So total pack weight at the start of day 1 was ~5.6kg (including 330g of water and all extra clothing).

This seemed about right. We didn't eat all the pasta - 400g would probably be enough and I think we took a 250g gas canister when 100g would do.
