    What ever happened to the reusable heating pads? Primus used to sell them as an accessory. Little flexible plastic bubble shaped to fit in the concave under the canister. Bend the metal disc to...

    Very nice. I do like the idea of alcohol stoves in general, especially for solo use. If I felt like cooking more often I'd probably use one quite a bit. These days I usually just keep it simple...

    You got my interest because even when I don't carry a stove, I almost always have olive oil. If there was a simple and effective way to make a lamp that burned it (in a similar weight range to an...

    For a February start, I'd probably throw them in the pack. I went years without owning a pair, but I've used them several times in the last few years and it's amazing how much they help. On a...

    Isn't the Volant one of their lightweight products? It makes sense to strip off some of those features in that case. Not sure on the zipper brand, but I've never had a seconds trouble on my FF...
