Toaks Ti
I have the lite trail version of the 550 and it will hold a cannister stove. Not sure is a can fits in there too but I suspect it does. Lite trail has them made with thinner Ti and they are lighter...

EE all the way
Great entry cost and up to snuff for any level of experience or weight requirements. I got an overstuffed 40* a couple of years ago and its warm down to freezing with my sleep clothes. Oh, and Ti...

Re: Re: What's your big four weigh/cost?

Luke's Ultralight
