Hi Camino Ninja, a comprehensive list and nicely presented but I would include a towel and in my case I used 100% cotton Turkish towel on both my Camino's and would suggest it's better looking at it than looking for it. It's also multiuse and I used it as a picnic blanket, head scarf can be used as wrap around transporting clothing during laundry time and a privacy curtain when in bottom bunk. I also had a bed bug sheet, travel pillow and used it everyday (no bites) Everything else in your pack sounds good and my pack before water was around 5kg, 22 litre Osprey Talon on back to back Caminos in France and Portugal over 3 months trip from September to December this year. Thankfully I didn't have any blisters and I put this down to good fortune, one size up on my walking shoes and two pairs of Merino seamless hiking socks, medium thicknesses over lightweight similar sock so my pack had 4 pairs in total.
