My DX travel kit weighed 4 lbs. less than my equivalent FX kit and the differnce was with the weight of the lenses.

I'm assuming you mean simply "equivalent focal length" and are ignoring aperture here. It's more expensive and heavy, or impossible, to get true FX-equivalent lenses for APS-C given the currently available options.

For example, there is no 18mm f/1.2 prime for APS-C that would be the true equivalent of the 28mm f/1.8G on FX. If there was, being an f/1.2 lens would most certainly make it very expensive and quite heavy, if it's even possible with the F-mount.
