I bought one of those, but without the hanger for the fire...waiting for the post man to deliverJust to boil water they should work well in my opinion. But if you run out of fuel you are lost. The cups need to be conventionally in my opinion and can be used as a lifeboat like this.
I went out last weekend and I used all my new gear in one go.
I got a new tent, a OneTigris TIPINOVA after seeing it in some youtube vids and seeing its pretty cheap.
Setup was easy!
Good job I always take a little pouch of spare pegs and guylines as they provide you 10 peg which is bare minimum. It was windy so I needed to guy it out. They also provide 4 guylines for that. BUT needed 2 more for the sides of the door to hold that steady. So really you need 16 pegs and 6 guylines.
Nice and cozy inside!
No solo pics of it but I only used a new Snugpack Jungle Blanket instead of a sleeping bag. it dropped to 1C at night and i was plenty warm with a couple of layers on.
I've been thinking of getting a Ridge Monkey, but didnt, I got half the price half the size none branded one off ebay instead. I love it, made a couple of nice cheese and salami toasties.
You can see it there but also got a cheap camping table thats just what I was after. Packs super small!
Also here you can see my new titanium chopsticks from ali express for £4 only 11.8g. Also my new Wildo fold-a-cup. Its not new but I LOVE my SOTO Windmaster stove, ive not yet need a windsheld for it.
And lastly just a pic of the chopsticks in use.
I paid the bit extra and got it off Amazon UK for £120 because I wanted to use it on that booked trip.
If you can spare a month postage Ali Express dose it for about £90 last time I looked.
Its a one tecking pole tent btw, I had mine set at 130cm.
