Open wire feedline is cheap and low-loss, especially if you make it yourself.  In this video, Peter Parker (VK3YE) shows us a simple method of making your own balanced feed line for dipole antennas.  Balanced line feeders, used in conjunction with a balanced antenna "tuner" or "coupler", will allow your antenna system to tolerate significant impedance mismatches without adding much loss.  Balanced feed line used with a suitable antenna transmatch (i.e. "tuner") will permit multiband use on a single HF dipole.
