Learning a lot from Spew? Maybe if you want to be a writer for Sesame Street, or something else that features long, tedious, fictional stories that only entertain children.

Taking a look out there for stainless steel canteens, that can be used to boil water directly in the fire if need be, or as a billy can.

Does anyone have an opinion on these?

Klean Kanteen Stainless Steel Water Bottles (40oz, 27oz) - YouTube
Some people are fanatical about how things fit snug together. It would be common to nestle a round GI cup on the bottom of a SS bottle. If there is not a close tolerance the cup will clang around. Nalgene bottles are perfectly dimensioned to the standard size round GI cup.
It is best to have a large opening for food and cleaning the inside of the bottle. I have made char-clothe in my SS bottle and it works great. However, unless it is necessary to do so, use something else and save the hassle of cleaning the bottle. Sand from a stream is a good source for cleaning the inside of these bottles. I also carry a Billy-can to do the dirty work like char-clothe and collecting Pine sap. The primary purpose of my SS bottle is to purify water, so therefore I have learned to keep the bottle pure even though the bottle has multiple uses.
I hope these comments put some light to help you decide if this particular bottle is right for you.

The Klean Kanteen is a good stainless steel bottle, very comparable to the guyot but les sin cost. It may not be as thick as the guyot bottles but I can tell you first hand, I have had one for years now and it has never failed me. I keep this bottle as part of my scout kit in my haversack. Very easily thrown in a fire to make all your favorite hot beverages!

The Space Saver Mug fits snuggly over the bottom of a 1 quart, round Nalgene bottle (Dimensions: 8.5 in height x 3.5 in diameter on Nalgene bottle)

Think I am going to order the 40 oz Kleen Kanteen wide mouth, and both the cups - and see which one fits the best. If the Olicamp is too tight, I can always use the extra 3/8" space from the GSIR for fire starting equipment for max utilization of space.

Wasn't sure where to put this, but a great little kit bag I've had for years.



It's official designation is:
Bag, Flyer's Helmet
SP0100-98-F-EC43
8415-00-782-2989
UNICOR

Nylon Material.
Heavy Duty Zipper.
Padded Inside.
2 Outside Pockets w/Closures, 2 sleeved inside pockets on ends
Convenient Carry Handle.
Main Compartment w/Zipper Closure.
Dimensions: 19" x 19" inches.

I would usually strap mine to my ALICE frame pack, although it does have carrying handles and a quick clip. The zipper is heavy duty, and the outside pouches feature a snap button and velcro fastening device, as well as a protective outer covering over the opening to protect the contents from weather and dirt.

I've drug this thing around the world twice and back again without any problems. I've used it as a pillow (since it has an insulated filler) many nights.

A handy little strap.



These are technically boot blousing bands, but I've used them as mini straps for miscellaneous items. They are elastic, and have come in handy. I'd have to dig through the duffle to find them, but I believe they are about 6" in length, and will stretch almost twice that.

Of course our "soldiers" haven't mentioned 550 cord.
