Nice starter collection, but you're missing a whole bunch of stoves there. Still, a pretty good core to build on.

And every one of them is, and always will be, essential for . . . hmmmm.

Well, it is nice to have all of them -- just in case

Jay,

You definitely need to focus....or sell off some stoves.

No wood burning stoves for me- just to much collecting scraps after a long day of hiking and then to much (fiddle time) and then Dirty Hands-- No way Jose!!

It may help if you focus on the fuel first, deciding on what fuel is most advantageous for the majority of your trips.
I got a simple small weekend or UL setup and I have a heavier setup good for anything including winter or a big meal with real food.
I also have a lot of alcohol stoves that piled up over the years and I cant seem to part with them, an old Antigravity gear side burner signed by Tinman, an old Brasslite stove thats just beautifully constructed ect.,
problem is as far as Im concerned the Caldera cone system makes all predecessors a bit obsolete- its just works in real world conditions so much better.

No, too many pots in the way! on 05/02/2009 19:04:27 MDT Print View

Jay,

If you'd just move the pots out of the way you'd see that there's PLENTY of room for more stoves in the picture!!!

Focus looks fine, not a blurry stove in the lot!

Stove Options- I finally Focused!!! on 05/05/2009 13:47:37 MDT Print View

I finally focused on clarity and chose two stoves out of my arsenal for the up-coming Backpacking season!!!

First:
BPL FireLite 550 --- 2.6 oz
Ti-Tripod pot stand -0.2 oz
Ti-Windscreen ---0.2 oz
Bottom of Red Bull Can-0.1 oz

Total: 3.1 oz

This is a very small compact-easily used cook system that packs away great in my Golite Ion. The cook pot has little storage room for Esbit Tabs and miscellaneous gear. This cook system is excellent for a weekend adventure.

Second:

Heineken Can--------1.1 oz
Ti-Tripod pot stand-0.2 oz
Ti-Windscreen-------0.2 oz
Bottom of Red Bull Can-0.1oz

Total: 1.6oz SUL!!

This is also a excellent cook system. I personally think this is my best option for one reason and that is the storage capability of the Heineken Can. There is extra room for Esbit tabs and (little things) such as GU'
S,fishing tackle, tea & coffee bags,ETC-ETC!! Oh did I mention that the cook system ways 1.6 OZ!!!!!!!! The Hienken Can System I feel is better for multi-day trips.

What? No Brasslite stove? No white gas? You won't have too many options until you get those.

Why Jay....I believe you're referring to the "Caldera Keg - H" the exciting new stove system that is capturing the hearts of millions and taking the lightweight community by storm...even the most grizzled trail veterans feel their heart go pitty-pat when they gaze upon it.....
