Like many of you I don't want to carry any more weight than I need to, and even enjoy seeing how light I can go and still be comfortable.
On my thru-hike, I started out with the whole Trangia Westwind set, stove, cap, simmer ring, stand, pot, cover, gripper. I used an aluminum MSR windscreen.
Soon I fried the o-ring on the cover, so out the cover went. After that I'd put in just enough fuel to do the job and let it burn out.
Next I got rid of the simmer ring. Nice idea, but not needed.
Then I swapped out the pot gripper. I just didn't trust the design. Got another light one of more conventional design.
Next I tossed the dish/pot cover and used aluminum foil. Didn't like the foil, so got a very lightweight, thin aluminum cover.
Then I got this brainstorm to get rid of the stand. I took two of my aluminum tarp pegs, and poked them through my windscreen to make a stand. One of the stakes went through the overlap point so it held the windscreen together as well as providing half the stove support. I loved this modifiction, because it saved 100% of the weight of the stand with no sacrifice.
Next time I'll swap out the Trangia stove for a lighter model. Guess I'll have to research Sgt. Rock's site for that!
