I agree with Nathan. Perhaps something like this: http://www.backpackinglight.com/cgi-bin/backpackinglight/forums/thread_display.html?forum_thread_id=8499
Several people have expressed interest in that tent and would buy it if available. To match Nathan's suggestion, it wouldn't take much to tweak that design, and use trekking poles for the sides (rather than the slight curve) along with the pole over the top (connected by a hub assembly). Such a tent would be pretty strong, too (trekking poles plus short carbon fiber poles for support, with no curves).
With regards to Cocoon Mitts, I don't mean the Vapor Mitts. I mean very light, simple puffy mitts (essentially the same thing as the Cocoon jacket or pants). No vapor barrier, no tough leather palms, no heavy straps, none of that. Just simple, very light, puffy mitts (not intended for extreme temperatures).
