Re: Best alcohol stove for MSR Titan pot
I've been using an Evernew about the size of the Titan. I really like the humble cat can stove. It's not as fancy as the rest, certainly doesn't have the bling factor, and probably no...

Re: Re: Re: Sil-nylon Misting
So, with the exception of cuben, is 1.9 oz. PU coated the lightest that can be declared "mist free" or waterproof?

Montbell Thermawrap jacket
