Gas Stove stand / steady
Hi, My first post here. Just thought I'd share an idea I've come up with to stabilise gas canister mounted stoves. Have a look at my video on YouTube:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tr3B0b3SHgcCheers!
very cool!! its almost not piece of gear so much as a technique.
Thanks for the tip. Excellent.
Cheers, I was originally trying to come up with something I could perhaps sell, but it ended up being so simple it seemed silly to keep it to myself, and I'd not heard of it being done before.

I wonder if this would work better/worse with elastic shock-cord instead of nylon cord?Very clever technique.
I think it could be an improvement. I showed it to a friend a while ago and he made one with shock cord. If you get the lenghts right it can fit over a bigger range of canister sizes, and isn't a lot less stable. It can also be used in conjunction with the bases sold by MSR, Jetboil etc.
