That one is two layers of 4-5oz, and it was a good "thick but not too thick" weight in the end.

I'd be happy to triple my price if it gets me more quality cred
If you're selling to the right people, they'll recognize the difference in quality is greater than the difference in price if you offer something like one of the AAs.
You'll probably feel better knowing that you're not peddling sweatshop goods, too.
