I have a Thermarest ProLite Sleeping Pad, but I might get more of a inflatable type so it packs smaller. I have a few compression sacks for clothes and the tent, I zip tie the tent poles to my rear racks. I wouldn't think you are going to need either rotopaxs, keep the best as lite as you can. I think am going to give the Kenda a try also. This is just stuff I am going to do, and I am no expert
Do yourself a favor and stuff both your tent and sleeping bag in a large waterproof compression sack instead of rolling them. Just make sure to stuff the sleeping bag in its own waterproof sack first. I was surprised at how much room this saves.
