Yup, thats what you need.
Some people have the ability to hold a crap in for days, I don't so rather than getting all hung up about it I just except that it will happen at some point and take a trowel, also some antibacterial hand wash, you can buy little bottles of it from chemist's or supermarkets. Enjoy!
A rucsac, a shelter, food, means of heating food, water/bottles, First Aid Kit, two sets of base layers, (one for daytime and a dry set for shelter use), waterproofs, map/s, compass, cleaning stuff, (you and food gear), sleeping bag, cutlery or Spoork for eating/preparing food.
Any medication you need and 2 days extra, just in case.
Of course the right boots/shoes for what you will be doing........ Worn before you go to make sure they won't give you problems.
A torch. Head torches are best.
Hip flask (with whisky, brandy, rum or similar).
At least you didn't have a suitcase or a saw on that list Rog
" i dont want to be without anything even if i am mr improvisation but i also dont want extra weight." Take exactly what you would when non-wild camping only factoring in no organised toilets.
it's camping. it doesn't matter where you are.
perhaps not a dayglo coloured shelter or clothing.
Paul, what season/s are you going camping?
Yes, a two ring burner is a bit much....you can get a pocket rocket clone from Gelert for £10-£15 or an actual second hand pocket rocket from ebay for the same money.
Or you can make a meths stove for nothing. CCF camping mat for a fiver, Tesco down bag for 30 quid ish.....

You might be able to Mrs. N., I'd pay £10-£15 is sticking plaster and Savlon....
Edit to add....
I don't know any....
Did the OP say where he is going and for how long? For a local overnighter you don't need half that stuff. Just shelter and something to lie on and in. For 2 weeks in the hills you need the full list to be comfortable and safe. And that can weigh anything up to 60 lbs or more unless you get the right things. Which can be expensive.
So I'm not sure that we can answer the question yet.
No. NO! DON'T ask about meths stoves, the result will make the Libya situation look peaceful......
Hexamine works but is inefficient. If you can get them cheap/free though, do so, it does work.
