    Do it. It's my favorite cook-pot by a significant margin. Super durable, has graduated markings in 4oz increments, and nests inside a space-saver-style mug like a charm. There's also a subtle indentation on the bottom of the pot that fits many alcohol stoves. I recommend ditching the cups and replacing the plastic tab on the lid with a split-ring.

    Water resistance is excellent, at least on the two I have, though they've only been out about 5-6 nights total, so no idea on the durability.

    They're too small for any adult hammock alone, but by running them diagonally and overlapping the two, I get enough length and side coverage for a heavy rain with light winds. Haven't tested in windy rain yet.

    For the size and price, though, they're usually in my panniers when I'm riding to outdoor concerts and other stuff where I might want a quick, small sunshade or light rain shelter. Three stakes and a tree, (or light pole) or two trees and two stakes will give a few setup options.

    One tip I've since discovered for the Stanley cook kit, (or lots of others, for that matter) is to make an insulated sleeve for the pot from a reflectorized windshield sunshade (used the same $4 one you cut your cheap butt pad for the hammock from) or similar, so you can cook by retained heat.

    I've now done black eyed peas, rice and macaroni in the Stanley over wood fires by bringing it to a rolling boil, then putting it in the sleeve, and out of the wind. An hour or more later, it's still scalding hot, but without any heat being added, the food is cooked without the danger of scorching.

    Caveat on those: they are very narrow, so you need to get a stove with a strong central flame and a long handled spoon for serving.

    Agreed. The Zelph Fancee Feest fits perfectly with its built-in pot stand and provides the flame in a sufficiently tight radius for a decent boil.

    Been doing some car camping with the family, and the tripod grill has been a good add. Wouldn't backpack with it, but for grilling over a fire it's done great on our last three trips. Warming up some cookies for an after swim snack.

    I have the trekking poles and they work pretty well! I took the buckets off the bottom and I've used it on multiple hikes. My only complaint is with the handles. I find with that style of handle, it gives me blisters on my thumb from my hands getting sweaty. I'm going to switch from these to the black diamond poles.
