My time to shine! I'm big into canoe camping. All the links I'm giving you are from Amazon Canada but you can get the same stuff on Amazon USA.

  • Get a backpacker's stove. You can get a cheap one from Amazon like this or this.

  • Get a cookpot off of Amazon too like a Toaks pot or Stanley pot.

  • Get a water filter like the Katadyn BeFree.

  • Get a spork.

  • Get a frying pan that has a handle that can fold up. There are a ton of options for this on Amazon.

  • Don't forget a spatula. You can get smaller, lighter options for this on Amazon.

    Now you're all set for anything you have to cook.

    Food suggestions:

  • Frozen meat for the first night
  • Frozen bacon for the first morning
  • Eggs for the first morning
  • Salami
  • Bagged tuna
  • Bagged salmon
  • Fish (if caught)
  • Babybel cheeses
  • Nuts
  • Seeds
  • Beef jerky
  • Low carb tortillas
  • Avocado for the first day
  • Mayo packets
  • Dark chocolate
  • Oatmeal packages
  • Dehydrated fruit like peaches and strawberries
  • Dehydrated veggies like peppers and onions and mushrooms
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Salt, pepper, seasonings
  • Dehydrated meals from MEC or REI (you can get regular options and low carb options)
  • Bagged quick cook rice

    I tend to not eat three meals a day when paddling. I have breakfast and dinner and maybe some snacks during the day.

    Be mindful that if you are paddling and hiking and portaging you're going to be burning huge amounts of calories. If you're just lazing about on a dinghy maybe not so much.

Shit, I wish that was mentioned in the shoestring budget list. I would much rather buy nice than pay twice. The last thing I need is to be 3 days into a one week hike and have it fail. Because then what, I go home? Just miss out on the other 4 days because I wanted to save 20 bucks? Cold soak my food? (which would be especially gross if it's something like a SideKick) Carry a spare?

I assumed that this was the reddit standard of UL can stoves. Now it looks like this is super common, what's the other competitor?

EDIT: I did that 15 min boil test using this cup and 3 cups of water. No bends or warps I saw but holy fuck it does NOT handle wind at all. I mean it was a calm day, you could barely call it a breeze. Windscreen will definitely be necessary.

u/pseudodit · 5 pointsr/bugout

For extended bugout, it's better to carry a nestable camp cooking set.

I got an old Primus one with 2 stackable quart sized pots and a frypan as a lid.

Means you can boil water in one, then cook food in the other while the water is cooling down. If I'm not frying with the lid, that gets uses as a plate.

When it's packed down, I keep various kitchen items inside (seasoning/condiments/penny stove etc) giving you an efficient use of space

I have a smaller BoB, so I recently got a Stanley camp cook set, without the plastic cups, and will get a titanium cup that will fit on the bottom (with all the various items inside)

u/fidelitypdx · 5 pointsr/CascadianPreppers

Here's one kit that is mostly complete that I built for my GF for Christmas. This is more of a "get home kit" since she works on the other side of the river, and post-CSZ the majority of bridges will be down.

A couple tips with this list:

  • You don't need the expensive batteries I included, you can use less expensive ones.

  • 2x of the 4oz fuel cans and the burner will fit inside the Stanley Camp Kit once you dispose of those worthless cups.

  • This kit doesn't include shelter.

  • If you're thinking about this as a "get home kit", be sure to include good shoes.

    You can jam it all into the shoulder bag with the food going into the dump pouch. All of this stays in the back of her car.
u/BlueFalcon2009 · 3 pointsr/WildernessBackpacking

I was using the Stanley cook set: Stanley Adventure Camp Cook Set 24oz Stainless Steel

And using regular boxed Mac and cheese. Without a windscreen. I think that was the biggest problem was the lack of a windscreen. Combined with my frustration of that, I turned it up a bit too high and ended up burning the Mac Noddles on the bottom. That and it was hard to stir due to the depth of the pot. My friend bought a cook set at big5 (discount sporting store) near me, for about as much as I spent, which came with 2 pots, a burner, a mini sponge, and a can of fuel for about as much as I spent. The burner was way better in the wind and she had no issues with it. That and I think I may have warped my BSR a bit from turning it too high... I'm probably gonna pick up that set soon. Seemed to work well enough. Think it was a bit heavier than my setup, but I know where I can shave some weight elsewhere.

I brought too much food for dinner. I didn't divide up the Mac and cheese boxes. I should've halved them at least. Needless to say I had a bunch of spare food, which I had to pack out. So lesson learned in that regard. I basically carried 6 dinners at least when I should've had 3. I think repacking ez-mac containers would've been better. Boil water, then pour into quart freeze bags as someone else explained. That would've prevented the mess, and the excess food I think.

u/tcmaresh · 3 pointsr/WildernessBackpacking

Just as important, or more, than backpack, tent, bag, & pad are your boots & socks. Your carrying yourself and all that weight in them!

Get good hiking socks from your local Outdoors shop. At least two pair of thick and two pair of thin. They should be "wicking" socks that take the moisture away from your feet. Wear the thin set inside the thick set. Put on the dry pair of thin socks at night to keep you warm. Never go to sleep in your bag with wet clothes, whether from falling into the stream or just sweating during the day, especially wet socks, if you can help it. (That's why you should always bring a set of extra clothes). But you may also want to bring a pair of socks just for sleeping.

When you shop for boots, get a good brand (e.g. Merrell or better) and don't skimp on price. These will last for years. Buy cheap and you'll be getting a new pair in just a couple of years. Shop at the end of the day when your feet are swollen and put on your two pair of hiking socks. Try several pair. Walk around the store a few times to really get a good feel for how those boots fit your feet. You don't want your toes to touch the front of the boot. EVER. unless you like yanking toe nails off your big toe. So walk fast or even run and then stop fast and try to jam those toes forward. If they touch, go up in size or find a boot with a bigger toe box. Your heel shouldn't slide forward when you're doing this.

For the stove, get one of these [cheap guys from China] ( Heck, get two in case you lose one! They work jsut as well as the name brands, have a little piezo lighter so you don't need to light it with a lighter or match, and they are SO much cheaper!

For a cook kit, you can start with the [Stanley Adventure Camp Cook Set] ( I bought mine at Walmart for $15. Get this - take out one of the plastic mugs and you can fit both the little stove AND small fuel canister into it! And the [standard GSI mug] ( fits right over the bottom of it, AND the lid to the Stanley set is a perfect fit onto the GSI mug. I bought a knockoff at Walmart for $5.00.

As for the sleeping bag, some will recommend down because it's lighter for the same warmth rating compared to synthetic and compress for packing better than synthetic, but I will recommend synthetic because it's cheaper and down is useless if it gets wet. I have a 3lb synthetic bag that is rated at 15 deg. I sleep in a hammock and a like the synthetic bags better because they are thicker so wind doesn't rip right through them as it does for really light bags.

The "waffled" Closed Cell Foam (CCF) pad at Walmart, while not the most comfortable, will get you started. It's cheap and light and will do well enough. You can also pile leaves under the tent for extra padding.

Don't forget a groundcloth/footprint that goes under the tent! It acts as a moisture barrier and prevents damage to the bottom of the tent. The woven polyethylene (typically blue) are really heavy, so I'd recommend a thick sheet of plastic instead. It should fit completely under the tent so it doesn't catch rain and funnel it under the floor of the tent.

If you have a Big 5 near you, that's a great place to get some good gear for cheap. REI & Cabella's get kind of expensive.

u/lone_purple · 3 pointsr/CampingGear

All you need is this Stanley cook pot (just don't use the extra cups) and you can fit your fuel, stove, lighter, a small sponge, and still have a little room. Only $14.

EDIT: Also, if you're looking for a mug in addition to a pot, there are designs that match the popular GSI for half the price...I think it might nest in this set-up too.I heard Wal-Mart has them but I can't remember the name.

u/shroom_throwaway9722 · 3 pointsr/preppers

Add an alcohol stove, bottle of denatured alcohol, cook kit, and pot stand.

Ditch the water packets and get a Klean Kanteen bottle. Keep it filled with water, and add another non-crushable container for extra water.

Now you can make hot tea, hot chocolate, coffee, grits, oatmeal, etc.

Add a hooded blanket tarp thing, some paracord, and a surplus military wool blanket. Maybe some cheap trekking poles or bamboo garden poles. Now you have a poncho and shelter! Add a few "contractor grade" trash bags just in case.

Add a pair of wool socks and comfortable shoes.

Extra batteries for the flashlight.

Safety vest or some kind of reflective thing.

PS: those lifeboat rations taste awful

u/outrushoutdoors · 3 pointsr/SuperiorHikingTrail

I M a big fan of fancee feast alcohol stoves and have been using them for years. I've made mine for around 10 to 12 dollars. There is a small learning curve to them, but they are very lightweight, silent, and you can find the fuel in just about any gas station. Shug does a pretty good job showing them in this video

I used to use your standard msr jet type of stove and they work great. Just really loud and the fuel is kinda bulky/costly.

For a pot, I use this stanley cookset Stanley Adventure Camp Cook Set 24oz Stainless Steel

Or a small grease pot from Walmart.

If I know I am going to be gone for a while and want to keep my fuel weight down, I bring my fancee feast stove and a twig stove (bush buddy). This allows me to boil over a wood stove when I have dry sticks and I have the option of putting the fancee feast stove inside the bush buddy when I want to boil over alcohol.

u/BBoneClone · 3 pointsr/CampingGear

All of the items below are very inexpensive but not necessarily cheaply made. You can get lighter, but you’ll pay a lot more.

Stanley Adventure Camp Cook Set 24oz Stainless Steel

This one has been great for me! Also comes with two cups.

u/jeepngun · 2 pointsr/camping

I use this. It has everything you require and I got it for $14.99 at WalMart
It a bit smaller I guess but close enough. I can heat up more than enough water for two mountain house meals

u/RC0032 · 2 pointsr/CampingGear

This is a solid budget friendly pot I use (ditch the green cups). It boils water for backpacking meals and will take a beating.

this one

Now if you have deep pockets get any titanium pot from Amazon and save 4/5oz's

u/Inquisitive_Cretin · 2 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

This is a nice quality inexpensive mess kit (no spork)

This is a really nice quality flashlight!

Here is a good quality pocket knife.

u/preps2017 · 2 pointsr/preppers

I like to have multi-fuel stove to keep my options open. I keep this Bushbox pocket stove in my bug out bag to cook in an emergency. I like it because it takes up almost no space, is very stable, is easy to put together, and can boil water using little more than twigs - no need to expend energy gathering and processing large amounts of fire wood. I use this mess kit to boil water. In case there is no dry wood available, I have a back-up alcohol burner that fits in the stove (a bit snug but works well enough) and I keep some denatured alcohol on hand as an alternative fuel source. There are lots of little burners like this on the market. I went with the Solo option because I would ultimately like to upgrade to the whole solo stove kit, which is cool but currently out of my price range. Finally, I have some Esbit fuel tabs that also work with the stove, but I view these as a last resort because I think they smell terrible! Some people swear by them though.

This set up works great for me as a single person.

u/Ralmaelvonkzar · 2 pointsr/CampfireCooking

From my experience in scouts the only things that weren't shit were stainless and cast iron. There's such a weight difference that it's easy to know which to use based on what style of camping you're doing.

Currently using this bought it at target on clearence for less than 10 which was nice. Actually use it at home a lot for rice or when I'm too lazy to wash the real pots/pans

u/phobos2deimos · 2 pointsr/hiking

Stove - Video
Pot, Pan set or this, depending on cooking preference.
Cutlery or this
Get fuel locally, such as the MSR butane mix for $5.99/8oz at Sports Authority
Total cost <$40

u/joeldleo · 2 pointsr/CampingGear

I suggest Stanley Adventure Camp Cook Set 24oz Stainless Steel

And a small plastic plate. Remove one of the cups and you stove will fit in the pot when packed.

u/brandoneil · 2 pointsr/coffeewithaview
  • Here's the Cook Set it comes with two mugs.
  • This is the exact stove I'm using but there are plenty of other ones.
  • And here is a mix of fuel, stoves, and accessories.
u/lambchopper71 · 2 pointsr/GoRVing

I use a GSI JavaDrip. Works awesome.. I use it camping in my RV and it fits in the saddlebags of my motorcycle too.

I also use this Stanley Cook set Comes with two cups and the pot is big enough to fill the JavaDrip most of the way.

u/Shepsdaddy · 2 pointsr/bugout
u/iacobus42 · 2 pointsr/IowaCity

Have you considered getting a Stanley Cup?

u/red_rhyolite · 2 pointsr/backpacking

Ehh I'd be wary. You can find gear for cheap, you just have to do some searching. Looks like you've got plenty of time to do that, too. If you're not willing to commit to backpacking as a hobby just yet, don't worry about buying the $300 sleeping bag. I have a $40 one I got on Amazon and it works amazing if you run hot. We have a "guest" backpack that we got from Costco for $25 (yeah it's not the best engineered pack, but perfect for someone who only goes once every few years). Costco is also great for cheap, non-cotton clothing and socks. They should be getting all of that stuff in in a few weeks.

REI gear sales are the way to go for headlamps, pads and tents. This is a good mid-level cooking set for two, and the Pocket Rocket is a good quality, low price stove option.

Basically, for the cost to rent, you could get mostly set-up with mid-range gear you can keep. You've got the time to find the good deals, why not take advantage of it?

Also, super jealous. I've always wanted to go to Glacier N.P.

u/Lurkndog · 2 pointsr/bugout

I like the 32 ounce single walled stainless steel nalgene bottle. The one with straight walls is best because it nests snugly in the GSI/Walmart steels cup. Because it is single walled, you can boil water in it with a campfire. It is also the exact right size for a single dose of water purification tablets if you don't want to boil it.

It is hard to find now, Nalgene has switched to a tapered design closer to a tall coffee cup. That one rattles around in the GSI/Walmart cup, but apparently fits snugly inside the Stanley Adventure Camp Cook Kit.

u/ArborealRob · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

$20-$50 Mr. BEER! Who doesn't want to try their hand at it?
$10-$20 Stanley Camping Cook Set Being able to cook on the go is nice!
$5-$10 Mimosa Pudica Touch Sensitive plant that pretends to die when touched, HOW COOL IS THAT?!
$0-$5 Rose Kissed Jasmine Tea You need to be able to unwind with something after playing with all the new toys, right?

u/DasBarenJager · 1 pointr/Survival

You should check this out I don't own one myself yet but I plan to pick one up soon. I've got a friend who speaks very highly of his.

If $40 is more than you are looking to spend you can go with the much more affordable Stanley Camp Cookset for about $15 but I would suggest adding one of these and ditching the plastic cups in the Stanley to bring your total to $20. The Stanley even fits real nice into the steel cup for storage purposes and you can put some food and eating utensils inside the Stanley.
This is basically the set up I use now and it's great.

u/not2day1024 · 1 pointr/gifs

Stainless steel camping cup from my local Walmart

Specifically this:

u/StolidSentinel · 1 pointr/vandwellers

For what you've asked for... I like these. I have 2.

It has 2 internal cups also, and a lid with holes in it... so the lid does not seal. They are like 12 bucks at walmart.

EDIT: Also... I can fit my alcohol stove inside one if I only take 2 cups (out of the 4 that come with 2 of these). If I could improve it, I would find a way to insulate the handle, since it gets hot while the cup is heated. Keep that in mind for the first time you grab it off the stove. You'll remember it the second time, and each thereafter!! :-/

u/upsidedownbat · 1 pointr/BISMUTH

I use this camping pot and it's been great:

u/poestal · 1 pointr/CampingGear

hey man welcome to bushcrafting so far you have a pretty decent list but i'd like to give you suggestions from what I learned throughout the years.

knife- good choice for chopping and batoning but too much blade to use whittling and making small cuts. generally you want to use either large blade/small blade or axe/ small blade combos.

backpack- 65L is very overkill unless your doing 5 day+ with clothing for every day. I would suggest something in the range of 45L max.

compass- do you know the area your going to or do you really know how to use it? I know every person says to just have one just in case but if they already know their terrain or dont even know how to use the dang thing its just wasting space.

ferro rod- generally stay away from things like multi use gear. also just from my experience you want a long rod (5"+) for more surface area to generate more sparks for an easier chance to catch fire.

pillow- I would not use hammock pillows for on ground sleeping. they're extremely small and have almost no support on the count of your body is in a curling position in a hammock. I would suggest something like an inflatable pillow for you to adjust for your support and then covering it with something like a shemagh or t-shirt.

first aid- your going to get more cuts, scrapes and burns so I would buy extra of that stuff, but I would also add some quick clot just for the off chance of having a serious injury out in the field. and also some moleskin for your feet and pain relievers. and dont forget sunscreen.

now for some additions for your gear loadout.

saw and stay away from those stupid hand chainsaws

cooking vessal

cowhide gloves

Again; welcome and I hope you enjoy yourself and grow with your errors out in the field.

u/Zoner1501 · 1 pointr/Survival
u/SilentEarthThree · 1 pointr/Ultralight

Damn, that looks great, but man $80 is just outrageous. I just bought this recently. The seal is decent, I probably wouldn't trust liquid in it, but dry food would be ok.

u/reyomnwahs · 1 pointr/CampingGear

I have this, and the 4oz tank and stove pack perfectly into it if you take the cups out. Pretty much any cookset of the same form factor should work as well. Optimus Terra, the Esbit set, etc.

u/wgg3 · 1 pointr/CampingGear

Stanley cook set, DZO cup , gsi cup , snowpeak life max stove , jetboil canister holder , Keith ti spork . MSR fuel, lighter, small bottle, and micro fiber rag were found at either REI or Walmart.

u/notimeforniceties · 1 pointr/Survival

Link to the Stanley Compact Cookset and the Camp Cookset , looks rather nice.

I'm generally a fan of the jetboil though...
