Cooking Kit Gear List

Total Weight not including ( Disposables Gas Canister Adds 110 Grams) 1.64 Lbs.

I have modified the Optimus Terra, buy removing the heat ring on the bottom. I made a Pot lid to fit the large bottom, with strainer holes. I do not carry the smaller pot top section. I've never used it so eliminated it from the kit. This cut off several grams, making allowance for the wind shield.

The wind shield allows for very quick heating of the pot It will boil 2 cup of water in less than 4 minutes with 3 grams of fuel. I consider it well the extra weight.

The Heat Pouch is a nice luxury. It allows the pot to remain hot for long time thus shielding your hands from a very hot pot while eating. Also is very handy for Dehydrated / Freeze Dried meals.

The Titanium Spork is practically unbreakable, I've the plastic Sporks and have broken of melted the.

The Stove is awesome I've tried Alcohol stoves the seem to be pretty much a joke. Yes there light but the fuel is a royal pain in the Ass. Leaks in you pack, heavy 8 oz is only good for 4-5 meals. So coffee in the morning, dinner at night you used 8 oz in 2 days. Iso-butane small canister 100 grams, cooks 50 plus meals. I generally pack for 6-7 days of food.
