Ouch! Eight pounds is not insignificant for anyone, worn or carried.

Are you kidding?  My clothes weigh that!  I've had to carry my 30 pound daughter around while she was asleep, and she isn't wearable.  I've gone backbacking with 60 pounds on my back, and that was half my body weight at the time.  My 9-year-old's school backpack weighs around 12 pounds and he doesn't complain about it, and he's only 50 pounds and 4 feet tall.

Exactly!

When I was in high school my back pack easily weighed at least 30 pounds.  I carried at least 50 pounds of papers in a shoulder bag up and down hills and for at least 2-3 miles, (I don't remember exactly to total amount of walking it was) when I had a paper route in my early teens.   If you are an able bodied adult and struggle with carrying 8 pounds of camera gear in/with a purpose designed bag/waist pack/strap you need several trips to a weight room not a lighter camera system.
