SUL handicap
I can hit sub 5 with no issue either, just to be clear, and I wear a size 54 sport coat. In fact, I find it easy to hit sub three for a weekend, I just don't much see the point, other than brag...

Snow Peak 600
This cup is big enough to cook in for a solo person, a huge cup of java, or it's great for just boiling water. I use a piece of simple foil for a lid and it works amazingly well on a Snowpeak Giga...
