I have pouches that will hold everything I normally carry in my camelback mule, and if used that way it will be pretty heavy due to the water. Without water it would only need to hold a pound or two.
At the very least I will use it with just a few small pouches for ciggs and an altoid tin since none of my skirts has pockets.
Somehow I expect it to fall somewhere in the middle with the mule for water and less frequently used stuff, and a few pouches for stuff I don't like to have to dig around in the mule for all the time.
Using it for cigarettes and ashtray is a good plan, and probably justifies its existence right there. Other light stuff you could stick in there: kleenex travel pack, lip balm, sanitizer, mini mag light.
I had a belt made specifically to hold just my camera and spare batteries/memory cards, because I'm 50/50 on wearing a belt (depends on my mood and what I'm wearing) but I HATE digging for my camera in a knapsack. When I want my camera, I want it right away.
