One of the ways to lessen what you have to put in a pack or bag,  is by dividing up items in to strategic areas of your body. Replace your shoe or boot laces with 550 Parachute cord. This will give you plenty of cordage should you run into and emergency where you need it. Do not worry about going without boot laces. 550 Cord is 9 cords in one.  You can take what you need then, replace the main part of the cord.  It comes in many different colors I am sure you can find one to match your shoes.
