Anyone use the Snow Peak titanium bowl for a pot?
I just noticed this in another thread about light stove/pot combos. I was wondering if anyone had any experience using this bowl as a pot with an alcohol or esbit stove. What stove did you use, and...

Re: Need to choose 2 tents for different circumstances. Please lend me a hand?
My experience with mids has been very good in wind and snow (Duomid and Shangri-La 3). I routinely use them in inclement weather above tree-line. Silnylon stretches a little, but I have never had a...
