My Locale Midwest
About Me I am in my late-40's and really got interested in backpacking about 10 years ago as a way to have some concentrated time with my boys, now all finishing up high school or in college. I try to get out a few times a year, including a bi-annual trip to Colorado for some of the big stuff. Otherwise I am stuck in the very boring midwest where everything exciting is a good day's drive away.

I've used the poly both inside and outside of the Hexamid and found that I liked it more on the outside for the reason that you stated: it kept the netting cleaner and I spent a lot less time p...

Let me check
I believe I have one that I've not used in some time, so probably time to give it a good home. I'll check when I get home tonight and get back with you.

me too
After Michael gets his, I need one as well. I'm with you Michael, great pan but a mystery that MSR sells this without a lid, even if you had to buy it as an option.
