Thanks very much everybody. I cannot even tell you how helpful all of your suggestions were. I took a close look at all of the options you presented, and I think I'm going to go with the Warbonnet Mamajamba. Seems to be offer the best of all worlds with a nice, light weight at a great price (given that they're currently one sale).
