Re: Canted vs. vertical canister

Re: Minimum temperature for inverted canister stove
I can't match Stephen's temperature, but this morning I tested my Windpro II and my Caffin stove on the patio at a bracing +4* F (no wind), and both stoves functioned quite well. Not as eff...

re: More Greenland
Yes, about 1" between the stitching on the outside and that of the inside. I'm not quite sure what they've done there. It's almost like there might be a thin membrane that runs per...

re: Greenland?

Re: How many actually use their down hood?
