Rod, yes, 17.92, but "L/oz$"(higher number better). Or using Steven's (more intuitive now that I think about it) method, 55.8 oz$/L(lower number better).
That thin titanium bowl is is a little heavier per volume than the FireLite 500 (pot only), but the higher volume/weight ratio(goodness) of the FireLite costs you a little more 10.73 L/oz$. Just shows that you can get light gear economically, but the very lightest is sometimes the most expensive.
I for one would be willing to pay more for lighter gear which lasts a lifetime, as would Titanium. Anyone want to amortize the liter-ounce-dollars per year?? aghh.. enough ; ) we are gear geeks.
Joshua pointed out in a later post that Snowpeak bowl fits the 3-cup Caldera Cone at a savings of about 17 grams. The lid and cozy from the TD pot also fit. Thanks Joshua!
And all convoluted analysis aside, when I'm going out the door for a trek, I either grab my Jetboil or the Trek900/Caldera setup for their ergonomics and efficiency in the petrolium fuel, or alcohol domains. (The Trek900 was dead last in Sharon's analysis but it is my favorite pot for a long list of reasons*)
*OK, you are bored enough to want to know why..
- Volume markings on side
- Lid holds 300ml when inverted and placed back on the pot
- Lid can be a fry pan or drinking cup
- Circumfrence of the pot is small enough drink from, yet big enough to hold a large fuel canister
- TD makes Calderas for the pot AND the lid
- 900ml is just right; enough capacity to boil water for a double meal and two hot drinks
- Handles are easily removed and replaced with no damage
- Nests inside the Trek1400, and the other Snowpeaks nest inside the 900. If I were hiking with a group I could fit 8 titanium pots/cups in the space of the 1400.
