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: Does it matter that much?
just kidding Tom, as you know Steripen has a problem with silty water, like glacier run-off. The silt blocks the UV. You can double the treatment time as they recommend which might make it eff...

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Does it matter that much?
why is it I'm always arguing with Tom? I don't think bits and pieces are what cause Sawyer filters to clog, it's minerals dissolved in the water. And letting it dry out. I've u...

Re: Re: Re: Re: Does it matter that much?
Squeeze is supposed to not clog as easily, has more flow. Some people swear they won't use a Mini, but use a Squeeze instead. I bought a 3 liter Platypus Hoser because they didn't have ...

but you don't want the side walls insulated hot combustion gases go up the sides of the pot. You want to conduct the heat to the water inside pot.

My 220 g canisters boil 16 ounces of water in 3 minutes, 4 per day, 8 days per canister, so that would be 96 minutes. But time isn't so good an indicator, because some stoves are hotter, some ...
