I can't comment on what would be the ultimate choice of material, but the current market of poncho/tarps are almost all silnylon- ID, Equinox, Golite, Sea to Summit and MLD- they range from ~ 8...

pretty much started from scratch too
I was in a very similar situation this spring. I went the "safe" route )light framed pack, light bags, light tent, canister stove) and while I have plans to change things up, no regrets....

Golite Ion-w/ a little modification might fit the bill- price is certainly right :)

if Mark doesn't get a chance to do it, I'll probably give it a go would it be "fairer" to make the Esbit tab 0.2oz to match the size of the wetfire cube or keep them as is?

I thought I had added my review earlier on this lamp, but hadn't :) I've been very impressed w/ this diminutive lamp- if you're looking for a lamp for hours of night travel- this isn'...

@ 16 oz (pair) these are certainly heavier than some of the UL offerings, but still relatively light the FlickLock is about as solid of a adjustment as I've seen for trekking poles- I'm sur...

I'd probably go 4.5 just because of the needed velcro, but I like these enough I wanted to round up. They are breathable, they are light and they do a great job of keeping stuff out of your sho...
