I have a Caldera Cone GVP. Bought it when they first came out. I keep the screen, fuel, and stove in it. I carry it in a Cuben sack from zPacks to keep the Esbit residue from getting on my other gear. I don't use the caddy.
I store it about midway in my pack, without being overly careful. It is stored where it needs to be for efficient packing. The first Foster pot developed a pin hole leak after about 2 years. This can had a single single rib on it - early model. About 1.5 years ago I posted here about the pin hole. Rand from Trail Designs posted back that the newer multi-rib cans last a lot longer. So I bought two from him and two from Zelph. I am happy to report that I am still using the same single can since March of 2012.
