Thanks Mike!
Pair on the way from Mike. I knew this crew would come through. Now here is to hoping that I do not actually need to wear them on New Army Pass this weekend.

I have seen those, and they may be the backup if I do not find the Kahtoolas. The kahtoolas are a bit lighter. The hillsounds weigh as much as my aluminum Grivels.

Kifaru UL
I owned one of the larger Kifaru UL packs when they first came out. They are VERY well built, light and the suspension system is great. I had up to 55lbs in mine and well, it is still 55lbs, but ...

Montbell Extremely Light Down Jacket
I have the Ex Light in a large and I am 5'7" 175lbs (16.5, 32/33 dress shirt). The fit is great. As was said before, this jacket is meant as a layering piece, and it does its job very well....

Sea to Summit Alpha Light Spoon
I have the longer one and it is perfect for freezer bag meals, and lighter (and cheaper) than the Ti one to boot. The shape is great as well. Bravo S2S.
