Coincidently, I was looking at this yesterday. My wife has a 3 X 9. The cassette was 12-32T. I think it is now 12-36T. She is frustrated with the front shifting, chain drops, etc. (Yes I have adjusted it.) So I was thinking of the Advent 11-42T with one ring in the front might be enough.
I was hoping the Advent shifter would work with the SLX, as I will probably move to the Advent system later. I'm limited with the RD at 36t, which I'm running a 12-36 cassette currently. I spend MOST of my time on the middle ring, a 34t, presently, so perhaps a 30t narrow/wide chainring will be the choice later as well.

@wgscott I put NX 11 speed on my wife's bike and she is pleased with no more front shifting but really misses her EZ-fire shifter. I'm considering swapping it for the SLX 11-speed set I have on the tandem, or trying an XT shifter. The conversion was more expensive than I expected because she had one of the cranksets with riveted rings.
I'll see what I find at the Bike Collective soon, or just get a Microshift Advent shifter.

And a friend is dropping by this weekend to tempt me with a hydraulic brake setup, that I could probably afford...
