I've actually been thinking about the 2L pot for a while. I'd love to use the 1L one, but you can't get it by itself, I'd have to buy the set, which is kind of dumb. The other option would be to get the .8L kettle, but that's getting a bit small if I want to cook for two or, sometimes, three. Maybe the Firelite SUL-900 would be a good choice? I don't think two Trapper's Mugs would work as I like to cook actual meals when backpacking (not sure if the Firelite 550 could be used to make pasta puttanesca...).
(I know, that means I carry a lot of unnecessary weight and all, but I'm part French, I can't help it, I love food!)
As for the tent, I usually hike with my girlfriend, so it's good to know that the SL2 is tight. If it's a bit tight that's ok, but I'll need to make sure its not TOO tight. I'll have a look at the SL3. Any other recommendations for light, double-walled 3-season 2-person tents? Tarps and bivys are, for all intents and purposes, out of the question.
Water filtration in my area is also kind of important. We have very little springs in the area and most water we get comes from lakes and tributaries, so it's important to filter. The last thing we want is to get sick on the trail. :)
EDIT: I looked and the Pinnacle and feel it probably is a better fit. While it is a heck of a lot bigger in terms of volume, it will allow me to be more versatile in the end, all for 90g more: worth it in my book. Thanks Jason!
