    I use similar SS bottle!



    I have two of them, and one I use to COOK instant noodle over the cola can alcohol stove, whenever I travel light.



    Um, rather than bamboo tweezer, wouldnt a pair of chopstick work better? you can just whittle them out of some sticks.



    Also, I carry a few of the photon torches as zipper fobs in my clothing and other zippers, and a 1000 lumen Lithium Ion torch for long distance lighting.

    With the 18650 rechargeable battery, I never run out of juice even after 1 week in the bush.

    for my experimentation no the tweezers are superior, and easier to use.

    I have a couple of AMK emerg blankets (they are supposed to be much more robust than the std mylar emerg blankets).

    Do you think they might be better than the bivvy sacks?

    Would a goretex bivvy bag (assuming you can find one) be a better bet re warmth with breathability?
