BTW, would you consider this stove pressurized?


In a tree stand and on the phone making a post........while a 10 point buck just walked past your line of sight 10 yards away :mrgreen:

I have not tested for a boil using 1/2 ounce as of yet. Big digging project going on today. In the process of digging up my distribution box on my septic system. A little bit of a drainage problem :o

I do a couple of test burns on the slimline pot. I've done some tests on windscreen design and will try to get a video of it soon.

Hope you bagged a deer by the end of your day :D

Here's the Cobalt Blue in action on a very windy day:



It's also being used in Spain, Sweden, Finland, Australia and Germany. The UK has quite a few in use, not just sitting on shelves, they are very active over there up in the highlands. Tea time is a way of life and the Cobalt Blue is part of their kitchen ;)

I did some spring cleaning yesterday and came across some of these Cobalt Blue Soloist stoves.

I have made them available:

What is the total capacity on the cobalt blue soloist? Would it be appropriate for a TOAKS 750 Ti Mug? (I just boil water)

Thank you,
Dennis

I couldn't find this info on your site.... so I'll ask here:

What is the weight of the Cobalt Blue Soloist?
What is the weight of the flat bottom Fosters Can?
Do you have items in stock or made to order? (specifically the cobalt soloist and flat bottom fosters pot)


I'm looking for a lightweight/fuel efficient system to boil water on the PCT....I boil 4 cups of water/day(2 in the morning, 2 at night).... what would you recommend?


thanks
