Well to be blunt.. I am 5'11" and just over 200lbs... My "Get Home Gear" (linked in sig), minus rifle weighs in at about 35 lbs... This can go up quite a bit as I add more water than my acceptable standard.

I keep my gear in my truck, or a partial version (the panel pack) with me if I must leave the whole kit somewhere...

I've noticed for survival-minded individuals (myself included) to put a heavy emphasis on food-gathering gear (frog gigs, spears, snares, traps, fishing kits, gutting/skinning gear, cooking kits, &c.) and weapons, and less on carrying foodstuffs.
I think this depends on how long you really intend to Bug Out... what your true expectation of the situation will be... This will be different for most everyone... Some just want to get home.. Others want to hide out till everything calms down.. And yet others want to have everything on hand to settle and repopulate "New Markistanland"

What are your Goals?
