My Locale Oregon and Washington
About Me I started hiking about 45 years ago. My first backpack was 40 years ago. I currently try to do one backpack trip of 5 nights every month (which can be tricky in the winter) 20 to 50 miles. Mostly I stay around Mount Hood, Columbia Gorge, Mount Adams, Goat Rocks, and the Olympic Peninsula. In recent years I have shifted to lightweight - my pack weight without food and water is about 15 lb (7 kg). I make a lot of my own gear - silnylon tarp-tent, bivy, synthetic bag, simple bag style pack. My sleeping pad is a Therm-a-Rest air mattress.

Re: Minimum temperature for inverted canister stove

Re: Minimum temperature for inverted canister stove
That's what I was thinking (not very hard) until someone corrected me If you look at Roger's article http://www.backpackinglight.com/cgi-bin/backpackinglight/effect_of_cold_on_gas_canist...

Re: Soto
Soto should be good down to about 25 F. Sort of slow at that temp. Make sure you have canisters that are isobutane, not n-butane (or just butane), but most canisters are that.
