The hydration system weighs 5lbs empty plus holds 3 litres of water (2.2lbs / litre). So 11.6lbs across those two points.
5lbs empty - is it kevlar? That doesn't sound right - if it is dump it - think how heavy that is! i saw one like that - it was 1.75LBS

The problem with your set up appears to be that you don't have a waist belt for the amount of weight you will be carrying when fully loaded. All the weight will be on your shoulders and the weight will slide around. If you have a waist belt it might help. Doesn't your pack have a hydration sleeve in the back?

This one is .5lb
