Here's how I did it Jimmer
Like I mentioned up above, I wanted to lighten up my original Reactor. So I found a food can that fit on top of the burner nicely. I punched some holes to allow the hot gasses to escape (probably n...

Re: MSR Windboiler – Burner Reset
That's a great feature, Jim. I bought one of the original Reactors a few years ago. I tried to make it work with a MYOG pot stand for a much lighter pot (Titan kettle). I proceeded to overheat ...

re: The Fleece Thickens
Max, you could try to keep your girfriend and the cat in the garage, and store your fleece in the guest bedroom closet. But I expect that they would each find their ways into the 2 bedrooms. No way...

Re: Still, Jim...

Re: @ Monte
Monte, I use the 1.0 oz. cuben for my liners inside the Outsaks. The cuben roll-top bags that I did beta for were made from 1.43 oz/yd cuben. 2.5 times the dyneema over the 1.0 oz. cuben, so much s...
