  1. So Shiny, Must Buy it all!

  2. Better get that titanium Jetboil fast. Jetboil has discontinued the Sol line of stoves. The ones on the shelf now are the last ones that will ever be available.

  3. Hey not bad, I have four of the items listed and two items that are not on the list..And those are the.Frying Pan and a Knife, Fork, Spoon set.. I really, really, dislike the Spork. I thas put holes into the bottom and sides of my Ziplock bag dinners, and leaves scratches in the bottom of cooking Pans when stirring or trying to get some, sticky, burned, or encrusted items off the bottom of the Pan and it is just to sloppy to use when eating soup or soupy freeze dried meals….So that is why I was forced to learn how to whittle a spoon out of downed wood in fifteen minutes on my very first trip of replacing all my kitchen utensils with a Spork… And since most Titanium comes from I believe a Country who our President has made an enemy of….You might want to buy your dream titanium item soon………….As usual Phillip thank you for doing all the grunt work on these..

    • I am personally interested in the titanium frying pan for fish, but I’m not sure if many of my readers are (except you).

      • That is why I bought my Frying pan, for Trout and other beasties, like Rabbit, Squrriel etc. etc. . When I lived out on the Left Coast I planned on six major multi-day hikes into the Sierra’s every year. To get up into the Sierra’s usually means a long climb up a steep mountain trail especially from the East side where I was coming in from..Drive to downtown Bishop, make left in center of town drive up the Mountain to about 9000 ft. and acclimate the first night at a Federal Campground there.. Next day head up the mountain trail, you have a choice of many, to about 10,000 feet and acclimate again…Anyway..Weight is a big issue of course. For years I carried a folding handled Teflon coated Aluminum pan. It worked very well no complaints. But weighed twelve more ounces than the Titainum. So I bought a Ti-frying pan..Lots of issues but I solved them with the liberal use of Vegetable or Olive Oil and or Solid Crisco. You basically have to “float” what ever your frying off the bottom of the pan. A small metal flipper is a necessary item. Nylon melted on me twice..Funny I sat there one afternoon “sharpening” and “honeing” a pancake flipper for two hours…Boiling water is not a problem nor is soup or Soupy foods as long as you keep them in suspension by stiring them every 30 seconds or so. If you have, or can find, one of those old Laboratory heat diffusing pads for Bunsen Burners which we used for 20 years on the old SEVA 123R Stove, that might be a good idea as well..Food tends to want to stick to the bottom of the Ti- pan..and never, ever, try cooking Mac&Cheese in it. Of course, try it out at home first with a selection of the foods you are going to want to cook in the Ti-pan…I hear there is a Ti-Teflon pan out there but haven’t seen it yet or maybe it is in development. By the way Your first picture of the Sierra type Ti-Cup in the story, mine has a Lid with it..Does yours and did you accidently leave it out of the picture?

  4. You missed out on the Titanium Light My Fire Spork! Ultra light and has a fork and a spoon, not just some weird combo that doesn’t work. Why carry a Fork and a Spoon when you could have both?

  5. I’d suggest against buying the Jetboil Sol Ti. They had some rather serious design flaws (the fins would break fairly quickly). The rest of the Jetboil line is pretty solid, though.
