Finally got it into a nested package. Been carrying this stuff in a bag.

Its not SUL but it works, and there are ways you could lose a few more OZ.

Weighs 11.6 oz as shown
Just the pop bottle, stove, pot and pot stand weigh 5.8 oz.

List - not in any order
Heineken Pot 24
Heineken stove
pot support
pot lifter
titanium spork
plastic dish soup container
cooking bag cozy
Soap
Fire starter
mini bic
2 qt pop bottle and 2 plastic bags

Looking down. Anything I dont care about smelling like smoke goes into the wood gas stove/can and in a bag.

Inner bag contains the stove, soap and lighter. That goes in the Heineken pot that is only used for boiling water. Stuffed in along the side is a sigg pot lifter, titanium spork, and fire starter. The pot stand wraps around and the plastic cup for tea etc goes on top. That assembly is put into a gallon freezer bag. The cozy is put into the 2L pop bottle bottom,then the entire bagged cookset goes inside that. A top made from another 2L pop bottle bottom is used as a cap for the works. There is a little more room for some other stuff too.

The pop bottle bottoms can be use as water scoopers, etc.

pot grips on 06/07/2009 16:32:23 MDT Print View

Those pot grips are the business. After years of playing around tying bits of wire to my cups and pots, I finally picked one of them up at a 2nd hand shop a few days ago.
Almost as good as the 10 cent corkscrew I got years ago!

Actually very easy to MYO with strong enough wire and a pair of plyers.

I was thinking about drilling them out to make them lighter, but I bought that pair something like 30 years ago and they are Sigg. Figured I better leave them as is.
