Lightweight, high quality, inexpensive. Choose two only.

Titanium cookware, for example.

Just picked up an Easton kilo 3p for the two of us on our Mobius trips, (and a kilo 2p for when i go solo).
Tiny vestibule, but big enough to stow gear inside, and lighter than the discontinued eureka pinnacle pass 2xt we're replacing (zipper dying, developing leaks).

carbon fiber poles. 2012 tent of the year. Not completely free standing but I'm not worried. 20% off + free footprint & shipping @ campsaver. Still expensive, but if it saves a few nights in a motel, then it's paid for itself.

Neoair + 1 or 2 summer weight down bags depending on the season. Toasty to high 20's F. cocoon pillow.

Check out the lithium battery thread, anti-gravity seems to test better than shorai.

Posting from the field; please excuse brevity & misspellings.
