SMD Haven Tarp/Net Tent
For us the answer to #1 is the Six Moon Designs Haven tarp and net tent. A two person shelter with his and hers doors for under two pounds.

Huh, nice
I'll have to check out the Poland Springs bottle, I'm curious how they were able to get 3 grams lighter than my Deer Park bottle. If you want to shave another 0.6 grams off each narrow-m...
