    Default Pot that will nest a Dragonfly, pump, and windscreen?

    I just received a Dragonfly from a WB user and I am super excited to try out liquid gas stoves.

    Anyhow I tried to nest it all in my GSI Haulite MicroDualist (1.4L) the windscreen is slightly to tall.

    Does anyone have a pot recommendation?

    As I recall, my Dragonfly fits into the large pot of this setup nicely:

    I'll have to double check that tonight though before you should trust me on it.

    Did you get a chance to check the pot size?

    Do not store a liquid petroleum stove in a cook pot. The tiniest residue of fuel can, at best, ruin your next meal. Trust me.

    Oohhh. Good point! I didn’t think of that...

    Interesting. I carried my Whisperlite in a pot for years and never noticed the slightest hint of fuel smell/taste.

    I think a quick swish of water would solve any problems?

    I would have thought so.

    Dragonfly definitely fits. I have pictures but the page isn't rendering properly on my phone to attach them.

    Cool thanks for checking it out for me!

    Based on the amazon listing the large is 3.3L and the Medium is 1.9L.

    Do you think it will fit in the medium?

    I doubt it but I can check now that I have the set and stove handy. Took my a while to unearth them in the gear pile.

    I do appreciate it. My GSI is 1.4L it seems to fit except the windscreen is to tall for the lid to go on

    Overall do you like the quality of that set? Was going to head to REI soon and check out the Sea to Summit Alpha Pot.

    I've only needed to use it on one trip but it worked great then. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality. You certainly won't get anything similar from a big brand without spending significantly more.

    I fully agree. I sometimes take the view of buy once cry once. I already have some STS bowls and according to the description they nest with their alpha pots. ??

    My wind screen is 5.75” the 1.9L Alpha Pot is 6.5”. My current 1.4L pot is like 5”

    The medium is too small for the stove itself. Because of the way the fuel pipe and flex hose sit, it's about a half inch too large for the diameter of the pot.
