Re: Alternative for the MSR .85L Titan Kettle?

i'm using a snow peak 700 ti pot. like it enough.
not sure how it compares to the kettle though.

you could also look at the snowpeak 600.

what i really should have purchased was the snowpeak mini cookset - comes with a cup that you can choose to leave at home.

Odd that the guide would send you down the wrong trail. he musta been a newbe :D blue blazes for side trails... he suggested something easier to get us down... and it was way way harder. so we he...
