Hi, cool fuel container on 01/23/2012 17:57:23 MST Print View

I just recently joined this forum/community and am already overwhelemed with ideas and projects, and for that I thank you all. I made a zen stove about five years ago and after finding this site decided to make a few more. Nothing special but what I wanted to share (not sure if this is the correct thread) is my new fuel bottle.
It is a "disposable flask". They hold 7.5-8oz each depending on brand and weigh a touch under an ounce when empty. Sorry the weight isnt more precise but I only have a cheapo scale. I like the fact that they can bend/conform, and the size diminishes after each use as opposed to a hard shell container. They are pretty cheap as well, around $3 each

Thanks for listening, and providing an enormous wealth of information.

Cheers Ben

Where did you get it?Any shipping cost? Are you sure it doesn't leak-many do. What kind of fuel or ?? are you carrying?It may be unsafe for white gas. How hard is it to puncture? If you sit on it will it burst?

Absent any road tests for things you don't drink you may be better off with recycling a boxed wine bladder . $3 for this thing is expensive compared to a real Nalgene flexible which at about $9 is at least bulletproof at 3 times the price and works well with a Steripen.

Thanks for sharing!

I like the small size, and it can flex to desired shape in the cookpot. Cool.

Some examples of these pouches for drinks/food use were posted on the OM Meths Burner Q&A thread.

I'd collected a few, but they felt just a bit too vulnerable for my liking, and the narrow nozzle meant refilling was tricky.

as Jason said : I've used these -
much cheaper than $3 each even when filled with applesauce
