An two trekking pole A frame would be okay but it would be nice to see the tops of the trekking poles spaced apart to dramatically increase the head area. So instead of having the poles like this: ...

That X Rocket is a neat design. It would be a winner with trekking poles and cuben.

Cashmere
Good cashmere is really pricey. It would help if you had an idea what these will cost. My wife works at a Cashmere store that sells $700 men's sweaters. The cheapest ones are about $300.

Zpacks

Joke
I'm joking about wanting to spend a lot of money...I'm not trying to spend money just for the sake of spending money. I do seriously want to get some ideas for how I can improve my gearlist...

Mountain Laurel Designs Cuben DuoMid
The DuoMid is the best shelter for solo hikers. Don't be misled by the "Duo" in its name - you could cram two hikers in here but it's poorly suited for that (ie. no vestibule space, ...

Spark-Lite Fire Starter (Survival Gear - BPL Gear Shop)

BPL FireLite Firestarter
I love this FireLite Mini. It's the only thing that I 100% trust to start a fire. With a mini Bic you can run out of gas, be at too high of an altitude, get it wet or get it oily. Matches can ...
