About Me "When you can measure what you are speaking about, and express it in numbers, you know something about it; but when you cannot measure it, when you cannot express it in numbers, your knowledge is of a meagre and unsatisfactory kind; it may be the beginning of knowledge, but you have scarcely in your thoughts advanced to the state of science, whatever the matter may be."
Sir William Thomson (Lord Kelvin) 1883

"That means you need to take an extra partially full canister on some trips in order to empty it out. That's an extra 3-4 oz that is not needed." Do you never go on overnight/weeke...

Re: canister inversion
The advantage is that the gas mixture in the canister does not change as it gets used. This means that the gas remains under pressure and the stove continues to work when it is cold until the canis...

Re: Re: Alternative gas canisters for remote stove
Roger - I'm pretty sure there is no internal tube. They are very easy to use - raise the 'base' end by supporting it with something: boot/rock/snow/whatever so the canister is lying at...

Re: remote canister
Hey Fred - what kind of threaded canister do you use with the Spider? Is the CampingGaz CG1750 easily obtained in France?

Re: Cold canisters
David - yes, the boiling of the liquid gas will cool the canister below the ambient temp. This is explicitly mentioned in the article. This effect gets worse as the canister empties when there is l...

Coleman Exponent Non-stick Cook Kit
At first glance this looks like just another anodised aluminium cook set, but on closer inspection you will find that these pots have a real standout feature. There is a spiral groove machined or stam...
