My personal favorite "sneaky" item is a Shadow Cloak [+5] <+0> (20 smithing, armorsmith, artistry, artifice). By reducing the stealth bonus to zero, it makes the smithing cost of the [+5] evasion reasonable. You can add in "light" for 10 more (30 smithing total). Also nice is a Round Shield of Deflection (+2,1d3) (12 smithing), or (+3,1d3) (19 smithing). [I'm currently on a high-evasion kick.]

Mithril items are very good. I'll particularly mention Mithril Gauntlets of Strength [0,1d1], 16 smithing, or [+1,1d1] for 22 smithing.

I'm also partial to Dwarf Mask of True Sight (22 smithing).
