Thanks for the replies everyone! That's exactly the info I was looking for. A pack weight of 60-75 lbs is not unheard of for our packs- unfortunately, the medic usually gets stuck with one of the heavier packs. Same with the technical rescue pack mule. The commo tech has it a lot better than he used to thanks in large part to satellite phones (though that still hasn't solved everything- line of sight is still largely required for reception which is a problem in heavy foliage cover). Currently I am thinking about going with a small titanium cook set of just a small frying pan and a small pot.
