About Me My wife and I are originally from MI. We love to travel and hike. I've been an avid backpacker for over 20 years. After my first week long trip carrying #60 I started down the lightweight road. I like to make some of my own gear when I can. I've been a designer all my adult life, primarily in the automotive industry but also 6 years in aerospace.

my 2 cents
I've simply used a piece of tinfoil for my lid. The same lid will last for a couple trips. It weighs just a couple grams and it folds up for compact storage.

cool setup
Nice work. I've made something similar in the past with a cutoff Platy and a gravity filter. It should work well if everything stays glued. The down side of this is that it kind of takes awa...
