Now that my base weight is hanging out around 6-8 lbs, I'm much more intrigued by reducing my pack's volume instead. One idea that seems really appealing is the prospect of being able to fold my cookpot down for transport, vastly reducing volume and improving its packing flexibility.
So, Orikaso is a cool idea right? I mean, I don't take any of those things on my trips, but at least we can say the idea is clever, right? Well I wonder whether we could use the same concept for a cookpot.
The only problem I can think of is resistance to fatigue, because if we just stole, say, the Orikaso bowl and cut the same design out of Al or Ti, those corner bends would be subject to quite a lot of, surprise, bending. That paired with repeated heating and cooling cycles may cause those areas to, what, shear? Rupture? I don't know enough about what I'm talking about to make an educated guess.
Any thoughts about this? I'd love to be able to fold my cookpot flat!
