BRS 3000T --no longer looking

A place to chat about gear and the philosphy of ultralight. Ultralight bushwalking or backpacking focuses on carrying the lightest and simplest kit. There is still a good focus on safety and skill.
Forum rules
Ultralight Bushwalking/backpacking is about more than just gear lists. Ultralight walkers carefully consider gear based on the environment they are entering, the weather forecast, their own skill, other people in the group. Gear and systems are tested and tweaked.
If you are new to this area then welcome - Please remember that although the same ultralight philosophy can be used in all environments that the specific gear and skill required will vary greatly. It is very dangerous to assume that you can just copy someone else's gear list, but you are encouraged to ask questions, learn and start reducing the pack weight and enjoying the freedom that comes.

Common words
Base pack backpacking the mass of the backpack and the gear inside - not including consumables such as food, water and fuel
light backpacking base weight less than 9.1kg
ultralight backpacking base weight less than 4.5kg
super-ultralight backpacking base weight less than 2.3kg
extreme-ultralight backpacking base weight less than 1.4kg

Yep. Had searched Oz. Kogan are basically the same as the other sellers, delivery about 3-6 weeks, and very exy.
Stove sorted.

So a bit of Kogan BS re delivery times. If it doesn't work out I can always ship you mine and get another.

The Soto Amicus is my go to and you were the one that put me onto that gem.

Got one as a beater stove and a collection of mini bics. Seems OK after some use- always with an UL screen. Chucked my old beater stove i.e. Wok burner to my daughter.

Originally wanted to source a Montauk Gnat which was feted at the time as the lightest titanium stove available but went out of production.The BRS 300 etc stoves appeared but found another in an unlikely spot at Kathmandu. Pretty much exactly the same specs the Gnat. The K price seems pretty high now as half that a few years back. Great little stove re performance/weight etc. I have two if anyone is interested.

Quite different to the BRS in size and weight. Why not stick it in the market section?

This morning about 5.30 out of some of the wind. About 40 cuppas of the Earl of Grey at 200 odd (my preferred cup) mls, taken. Averaging less than 2 gms of Butane per cuppa -always with the foil screen.

My brew kit is an oversized stainless steel mug as the pot, which nests a BRS, mini Bic, small gas canister and an STS collapsible cup on top. Usually kept together in a thin sock.

Why not just drink your cuppa from the mug? :D
I like the spare sock idea-just in case? :lol:

Well I tried the X cup and didn't really like it but it fits the kit and half the time I offer hot water to someone else and I tend to make coffee with the tetradrip so perch that on the cup and dribble water a bit at a time from the mug pot. I am leaning towards tea in the future.
