Just when I thought I had the lightest stove possible… something comes along to shave ounces!
Roman from Lighthiker’s blog has an excellent review of this new stove.
It’s basically a recycled beer-can as the pot – with a Lance Armstrong style silicone wrist-band on top as a ‘pot’ holder.
The weight of the pot, cone and the stove come in at a staggering 2.7 oz.
However, the full package weighs in at 6.9 oz, which isn’t that great. If you look at the details – the wrist-band adds an ounce, a half-ounce for the lid and cozy and over 3oz for the ‘carry-case’.
I was sold until the 3 oz carry-case came into the picture. While this does double as a 2nd bowl – it’s way to heavy compared to my 0.6 oz disposable tupperware container. 2.4 oz for cone-crush insurance isn’t worth it in my book.
