ESBIT stove optimum pot height?
Could anyone tell me the optimum height the pot base should be above an ESBIT tablet? So I can place my pot supports correctly on MYOG windshield. Thanks Doug

monkey Pillow
Cool! Those look like they might be pair I just ordered yesterday - yellow momentum one side and monkeys on the other. 1.4 oz for a better night sleep - totally worth it.

Monkey Pillow
Hey, these look very cool. What size would I need for an Exped Medium Inflatable pillow - would the smaller size Monkey cover work? Cheers Doug

I use the double chamber pillow and love it. The key for comfort is to only inflate the chambers about halfway. I insert the pillow in a stuff sack and throw in a couple of bits of soft clothing such ...
