    Well, current newest:)oops:) ULest brew kit:

    Toaks 550 in mesh bag
    Foil windscreen
    Ti-wing esbit burner
    Lighter

    Also, for an extra mug/bowl (if required), the Pot fits perfectly* into the large (600ml) folding Kuksa (Fold-a-cup)
    [​IMG]

    * the handles part of the mug fit perfectly against the flat handle side of the Kuksa

    Using the bowl for? --- dunno, it was a wild impulse buy....
    Lighter/knife combo? --- a mini petrol lighter with a blade and scissors on the side (well meaning gift)
    Measuring cup. It's a Starlyte, so who cares? --- you spoil all my fun...:(

    I never realised they done 600ml kuksa Mole, look handy. I've got a couple of the Mini ones, they don't hold enough though.

    Most surplus shops stock the swedish army version. Its identical to the civy versions and mine cost a quid :)

    If there's free fuel about I like to take a Bushbuddy and Tibetan 900ml ti pot ..

    The rest of the time I switch between various meths stoves/pots and my JB Sol ti

    I'm currently playing around trying to use a 330ml beer can as a pot, a Hedley mini stove and pot stand with some of Paul's ti foil as a windscreen.

    Can post photo's tomorrow, weighs about 70g.

    Full Hedley outfit, folding Ti spoon, 500ml Pot Noodle Mug, wine bladder water bag. The pan behind the wine is a small Bulldog frying pan/lid. That's the dogs.

    the little Pepsi fridge pack cans are good, I think they're steel rather than ally. Still very light for a pot though.

    I tried the Evernew 400 as a standalone pot. decided just too small for me. At breakfast or brewstop (home, work or play) I'll usually drink 2 mugs (500ml) of tea or and for a dehydrated meal often more than 400ml hot water needed.

    I use one of the 330ml Heineken cans because they look cool :D

    I only need to boil water in mine and 300ml is usually enough water for most dehyrated meals and to make a cup of coffee. I'm also toying using it as a water bottle (as some will remember from previous threads).

    Edit: on another note, did anyone notice Vargo have released a non-ti version of their "bot" bottle/pot? Cheaper but much heavier...ULOG have it.

    It's one of them there "depends" for me

    Had this out yesterday, it's the kit i tend to use for winter day hikes

    [​IMG]

    It's small so fits easily in my day pack, plus it's also light weight, this weight is with enough fuel for 2 brews, lighter and windshield

    [​IMG]

    Set up with the Evernew burner but you get the idea

    [​IMG]

    Cup is a Vargo 450ml Ti (71g)
    Burner Vargo Triad (26g)
    Around 60ml of fuel (68g)
    Mini Bic, windshield and bag make up the other 25g


    Got a few other options i'll post later

    really? which meals? mugshots!

    most I've used are between 350ml and 500ml (average 420-480ml)

    The meths burner and 450ml pot is handy, but for 6 months of the year here the ground is literally tinder dry, any fire of any sort is prohibited, but i think a meths burner like the triad with it's tendency to bubble over would be irresponsible to the point of being criminal.

    Luckily for 4 of those 6 months it's THAT hot that the last thing i want at the end of the day is a warm meal or warm drink.
    Done a couple of shorter trips stove free and a longer 5 day one, to be honest in the hotter weather i really enjoyed it.

    For the other times and generally on over nighters this is usually my "go to" setup

    [​IMG]

    Kovea Spider (170g without bag, 195g with)
    Evernew 900ml pot (100g without lid)
    178ml gas canister (in this case 192g) gives around 16 litres of boiling water
    Mini Bic and windshield around 37g

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Fantastic stove, stable, good flame control and so far 100% reliable.
    Only downsides are the size (won't fit with a canister in my 900ml pot) and weight, have got a Fire-maple FMS-300T which is the king of the spreadsheet at 45g, the spider usually creeps in it's place once i get hands on packing stuff though.


    Other option i use is the Jetboil Sol Ti

    [​IMG]

    308g (274g without cup) really handy cause everything fits snug inside it, boils water very quickly, stable (with it's legs on) but useless for anything other than boiling water

    That's impressive off a 100g cart, I thought I was doing well with my JB Sol with 11 litres
