    MSR Titan Kettle w/ AGG Caldera Cone Kit

    After much research and experimentation, I have decided to consolidate my load and am going with a one-piece AGG Fosters pot with Caldera Cone set rather than a 2-piece MSR Titan Kettle with AGG Caldera Cone setup. This has never been used other than to set up on my stove to test and weighs ~10.6 oz. It is brand-new. You'll get everything in the photos:

    MSR .85L Titan Kettle - $60
    AGG Caldera Cone System - $35
    Alcohol Bottle and Measuring Cup
    Plastic Caldera Caddy that acts as a cup and bowl
    Caldera Cozy - made of reflective material to keep food and beverages warm
    Stuff Sack to keep it all together - $15

    Total - $110 invested + S&H

    Asking $90 via personal PayPal and shipped to lower 48 via USPS Priority.

    For some reason the image embedding isn't working so here is a link to the album.

    When you say two piece, do you mean that the kettle does not pack together with the stove kit?

    I pack mine inside the kettle, but it sticks out the top, the end of the cone is "armored" by a dixie cup. I've carried mine that way for a couple-hundred miles, I just pack mine in the top of my pack. I think this guy is crazy for selling his, mine ain't for sale. This is the best stove setup I've found yet.

    It is actually off the market for now. I just bought a Vargo Hexagon stove that I plan to use the Kettle with.

    Don't get me wrong, it's an awesome kit, but the Fosters cone is even more compact and lighter overall.

    I've used the Caldera Keg (Fosters pot with cone) since they came out. It's a very efficient, very light setup. Great way to go!

    Absolutely. I can't find a lighter, more efficient, all-in-one setup. I even have a titanium cone being made by Trail Designs to burn wood, esbit and alcohol and should arrive next week!

    How much does something like that cost? I have been looking at the Ti-Tri Model and it's $100-127, but comes with a pot and a bunch of accessories.
