Snow peak 600 ml improvements

The Snow Peak mug is titanium, and the weight on the package is 2.5 oz with the included hot lips.

image

It’s a little lower on paper than in real life. So since I don’t like those handles, let’s take them off. I should say I got this at the REI sale for like $20 after dividend and sale price.

image

That’s better. Now the hot lips.

image

Sweet. OK now a trick that I learned when I forgot a pot grabber one trip, use a silicone wristband around the lip. This serves as pot grabber and hot lips. And they weigh about the same amount.

image

OK now for the coolest part. I love l light gear but light and cheap is the best! And while this isn’t lightest it was only $5.

image

It’s the lid to a knock off Yankee candle they sell at Big Lots! A big reason I haven’t been buying titanium pots like this is that they are spendy, and they don’t always have lids but problem solved! And it fits over the silicone bracelet! I’m so excited my wife is laughing at me.

Hahahahahahahahahahahaha 3.4 oz! I’m stoked! OK now for the fun part.
Building the coozy! For this you will need:

– Reflecting material like Reflectix or a windshield protector found at the Goodwill for a dollar.
– Duct tape or reflecting tape.
– Sissors.
– A tape measure.
– A pot.

image

Start by measuring the pot.

image

image

11.5 inches by 4 inches. OK now cut that out of your reflecting material.

Crap. We need a marker.

Revised materials list.

You might want a helper. Then you cut out the shape.  Next trace the bottom of the pot on your material, and cut that out.

image

OK cut out a few squares of tape, about six 1 inch squares. And use these to secure everything in place. Remember the reflective side goes towards the pot.

image

You want some overlap to fold over the top.

image

I totally did that on purpose.  I wanted to show that it’s easier to trim than to add. I swear.

image

A little overhang is good, it helps the bottom sit well.

image

Tape the bottom on, then tape the whole thing while it’s on the pot.

image

Leave a little overhang again, this time to secure the bottom.

image

I find it easiest to cut little slits in the tape overhang, then add tape to the bottom to toughen it up.

image

New total! Let’s see the complete kit.

image

4.92 for a alcohol set up is great!

image

Not bad for the rocket either.

Worth $25.
