Planet Fear Aluminum Foil Pans on 01/21/2008 08:49:01 MST Print View

Definitely recyclable and BPL worthy.

The conversion of 12 grams equals 0.423287 ounces. Package of 3 for about $7 (2.20 British Pounds).

These are the cuben fiber of cookware.

You can subscribe to the Planet Fear newsletter and they have some pretty cool stuff sometimes.

Christopher,
Do you have some of these?

No pans for me on 01/21/2008 11:07:44 MST Print View

No, I don't have any of these. I cruise their site every once in a while and noticed these. They have good reviews sometimes and some decent lightweight gear. They used to carry the OMM packs, I was checking those out before I bought my first UL pack.

They carry the balloon bed as well.

I will probably order a set of the pans once summer gets closer.

Dollars to donuts (mmm, donuts) you can find them on the grocery shelf being used as food containers (which, given the crimp closure they surely are). Hopefully containing something you like to eat!

Or, buy them by the thousand?

Something for BPL to source in?

I have zero involvement in gear shop decisions, but I could imagine there being potential interest in something like this--perhaps mixed-size sets considering the dozens of sizes and shapes available. Now, where the heck are the titanium versions? ;-)

Packing? on 01/22/2008 16:09:29 MST Print View

How the heck would you pack a 'pot' like that without munting it?

But I can't come up with a definition for munting, so I'll presume it's Kiwispeak for mangling or some other transitive verb indicating you've crushed your little aluminum foil pot.

I'm not sure, other than after a comic pause saying, "Very carefully." It would probably need to go inside something rigid (a bowl, your "other" cookpot?) or have something carefully packed inside to fend off the other packed items.

Shaving those last few possible grams is a real challenge; ask NASA.

Oops, I guess I should stick to international english when posting. Munt, munted, munting are indeed all slang;

Picture is worth a thousand words.

Those 'pots' look so fragile that I would rather go cook free rather than try to keep them from getting crushed in my pack. But I can see the appeal to the extremists...
