fosters volume
research shows that volume for the fosters can is 25.9oz im guessing 16-20 oz is usable, 20oz is max for me, is this a usable amount with esbit? Boil times with 16 oz of water at 50-60 degrees?

Caldera Keg GVP?
can you use a heineken can with the GVP caldera system instead of a Fosters? Do you just adjust the band?

Big Agnes Seedhouse SL2
At only 2lbs. 14ozs. this is a very light double wall tent. I loved the all mesh walls which helps with ventilation and I never experienced condensation, but there were a few problems I had. Unless ...

Gossamer Gear Nightlight Torso
I love my nightlight torso, but I wish it folded similar to the z-rest. I only use two of the three sections because I use it as hip padding and not so much for insulation. I use a thinlight pad for...

Headsweats Race Cap
At under 2.0 oz. this is a great cap for above freezing temps. Coolmax material breathes and wicks away sweat at the same time. The terrycloth headband absorbs almost all of the sweat and is very so...

Patagonia R1 Balaclava
This is the best balaclava that I have found so far. It weighs 2oz's which may be heavy to some but it is far worth its weight. I have used it not only on backpacking trips but everyday in winter...

Klearwater Klearwater
I used Klearwater on my trip this past summer in the Weminuche and was very impressed. It is very foolproof (no mixing) to use as it takes 1ml of Klearwater to purify 1 liter of water. Twice while p...

Backpacking Light Ti Esbit stove
I love this little stove. It fits my SP Trek 700 pot perfectly and I was suprised to find it is very stable. I have had no issues with the rivet. It gets great looks when you pull it out.

Snow Peak Trek 700
As has been mentioned in the forums the lid on the SP 700 is very heavy. Other than that , it fits perfectly in my Firelite Ti esbit stove. The 26oz capacity is plenty and lets me boil water for my ...
