My set-up may be more ultralight than you want, but my entire cook kit including stove and fuel for 3 days is only 8oz.

I use this Esbit stove: http://www.amazon.com/Esbit-Stove-ti-Titanium-Stove/dp/B002AQET2C/

The biggest downside is that Esbit tabs are about 50 cents each so that'll add up over 5 months. Jetboils and pocket rockets are great too. Or you could consider a DIY alcohol stove with a Caldera Cone. Alcohol stoves are really cheap for fuel and you can get it at most grocery stores and corner markets.

Looks VERY similar, no? That one costs half as much as yours.

Also, this one weighs 11.5 grams and costs 1/4 as much as yours.

Stove: Check out this little guy: http://www.amazon.ca/Esbit-0-4-Ounce-Ultralight-Folding-Titanium/dp/B002AQET2C/ref=sr_1_7?s=sports&ie=UTF8&qid=1405465089&sr=1-7&keywords=esbit+stove

I just got one for myself. I got it because it has stands that you can put a water bottle on top of, and it weighs something hideous like 12 grams.
I know MEC has a little titanium hockey puck-sized stove you fill with alcohol. I decided to stick to solid fuel because it won't leak, it's compact, and you can replace it with stuff you find in the field in a pinch.
MEC also has a neat folding wood stove. It's a titanium hexagon with folding leaves. I thought about that but it's pricey.


Food: I don't know if 120 calories per gram is even possible. That might be calories per ounce.
I have a few clif bars and some bounce energy balls. They're about 4 calories per gram.
Don't stress too much about about energy density. I'd say as long as it's in that neighbourhood and it will last a year, put it in. I was even considering a wheel of preserved brie and some crackers to class it up a bit, but realized it might not do so well in the hot trunk of a car.

Water: Every thread here that mentions the LifeStraw has at least one person chime in and say a Sawyer mini filter will do a better job for less. I have experience with neither, but I've got a Sawyer on the way from Amazon.

I use the stuff sack my toaks pot came with, so the residue is contained.

This is the one I bought: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002AQET2C/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Thoughts on the esbit stove? I see it on a lot of the extreme light base weight lighterpacks.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002AQET2C/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Was $15 yesterday, weighs 0.4oz and the fuel cubes weigh 0.5oz and are also useful for fire starting. Cubes last ~12 minutes. "One tablet boils 500 ml of water in about 8 minutes "

The MRS small size gas canisters are like 7.5oz.. so this is a considerable drop in weight and space in the pack for shorter trips. Also, seems like fewer parts to break.

Negatives would be.. Im thinking you cant put a cube out once started.. cant adjust flame.

I just purchased one of these little guys for $5 at a Sportsman's Warehouse in WY last week.

I tried two of the Coghlan's tablets ([email protected]=14g) and it just made it to boiling. Haven't tried esbit yet, it may be worth the higher price.

I tried 14g of alcohol in a few of my diy stoves and they didn't even come close to a boil.

To me, that says solid is the UL choice.

This little stove is pretty amazing, yet simple. It's folding arms hold my 700ml Ti cup rock solid and the distance from the burner to the cup is perfect. At $5 and 14g, plus 14g/boil you can't go wrong.

Two ain't so bad!


12.27 in my general wishlist, linked to the right one...pretty sure.


1.00 in under $5, it's cheaper than the default, but not the default, but I'm sure I linked it right.

Three's a crowd!

5.49 in food

6.89 in default wishlist, not cheapest but I think I linked the exact one.

.99 Whisper to a dream MP3, in mp3 wishlist

Hopefully, no crazy price swings! And thanks for all the gifting, this socking,y took less time than damnyoureloud's contest!

I may edit if I can find that one perfect gift?

I love that little guy for hiking or biking. When he's paired with a collapsible shotglass and tiny stove my coffee on-the-go setup packs up to the size of the aeropress.
