Best fitting lid, currently using paint can lid but doesn't fit tight.

The only down side is you need to be careful when using it on an open flame. I've melted a few. Best to find someone who fabricates them from ti

Piece of heavy duty foil.

Don't like the idea of plastic with open fire...

Piece of heavy duty foil.

Ditto. I've used one on test runs with a slightly different pot at home. I've also read about others using this for long distances ... cheap, light, and replaceable. Limits your activities to boiling precise amounts of water, however (i.e. no plate/frying pan lid, no straining, etc.).

Mini Bull Designs (https://www.minibulldesign.com/productcart/pc/viewPrd.asp?idproduct=59&idcategory=5) makes a nice one for $10. Not bad.
I made one last season with a piece of aluminum flashing. Certainly not as nice, but I made it myself. Beats the heavy aluminum foil top I used before. I'll post a pic later if I remember.

Ive got one , forget where, might have been minibull, or antigravity gear.
It was too heavy, about 1oz, ridiculously heavy.
So instead, I used a small peice of stiff al foil cut from bottom of pie pan. 0.07 oz I recall
Cut it with a couple of side tabs that can be bent down to keep it in place
Put a small rock on top to hold it on, and use a small piece of aluminum tape for a handle

But, the SP600 is ridiculously heavy itself at 2.8 oz.
I have a stainless steel 10cm mug from a flea market that is 2oz. Has a handle, cost $1 , chinas finest.
and a Zelphs foster pot that is 1.1 w/lid

I just use the end of a piece of aluminum foil, with the remainder positioned as a wind block. Works pretty well in all but unprotected breezy conditions (in which case I'll position some rocks or wood to shelter the cooking area) and lasts for a 10-day section hike if I'm careful.

I used bottom of a coffee can with a wooden nob. Lasted about 2 years before starting to rust.
