had a look at that Vargo pot..
1 Liter 28 g ? That sounded too good to be true and it is.
The weight in oz (4.7) is probably correct so that is 133g.
Still I like the idea.

I carry two 800mL SS water bottles (single wall) instead of plastic and the reason is I use them to boil water in, for sterilizing (I am in the small minority of people who prefer to boil rather than use chemicals or filters) and also so I have bottles suitable for making hot water bottles to put in my sleeping bag on cold nights. I used to use Nalgene bottles but they required a separate pot for the boiling process and with the SS bottles I don't need a separate pot. For most of my trips my food only requires reconstitution and so I'm only rehydrating rather than cooking the food so I don't need a cook pot.

Though this shows the Titanium version, you can now get a stainless version from Vargo.
