Looking at all your pics, this Caldera is looking like a monstrosity -- on the size and scale of the Jetboil! I've known all along that the Caldera isn't compact, but I have no idea what it truly is until seeing all your pics!
Do y'all really go through this packaging contortion to get a 30-second quicker boiling time? Seriously?
I fit my stove, windscreen, fuel, lighter, towel and ti spork all inside my Firelite 550 pot. I suppose I wouldn't refuse a 30-second boil time improvement -- but NOT at the expense of bulking up my kitchen size and weight 2 or 3 times over -- or having to tear through my pack to pull the cone out of my sleeping pad...
I've also read that in some cases, because the pot rests on the caldera cone -- the two can get stuck together after boiling -- making it awkward to pour water out... No thanks.
