lol yeah it's not that practical. Neither are Frost River Canvas packs. I think there's just a special draw to these types of gear that people like myself truly enjoy.
I don't consider my type of camping as strict backpacking. Things are split between modern and old fashioned gear with bushcrafting. I go with what makes me happiest in the woods. In my case, I see these drinking vessels as more than just a cup. To me
this is the end result of a part of someones life, a piece of their time, and a piece of art. These days it doesn't seem like people appreciate a true craft/hand made things as they used to.
A high percentage of my gear is actually pretty heavy in comparison to some of the stuff others carry. My 1.8qt Mors pot for example weighs a little
more then the 12cm Imusa.
All I can say is that this special piece of gear along with my Hammock, makes every outing memorable. Or maybe I just think too much? lol
