I guess my dream list would be made of unobtainium:
Nice roomy tent 0 oz.
10* sleeping bag 0 oz.
5" thick insulated air pad 0 oz.
My current pack is fine, but would of course be better in a fabric that also weighs 0 oz.
Of course everything else should weigh 0 oz., too!
I might be able to backpack until I'm 100 with that combo!
As for sticks--they wouldn't work for me. The length I need for hiking is quite a bit shorter than what is needed to hold up my shelter. Problems with being a shorty! Besides, a stick stout enough not to break under stress is quite heavy compared to my trekking poles!
