    Default Stanley Camp Cook set

    Anyone check out one of these in person yet? - LINK - Looks like it could be a nice two-person brewkit.

    I watched a YouTube review showing that it is large enough in diameter to stow a 110g cartridge...which means it may nest over a 1L Nalgene bottle.

    It seems a little odd, but apparently Walgreens is selling them online and "in-store" - LINK

    Not that set specifically, but I have a few recent production Stanley items - double wall mugs and a thermos - and they are well made.

    I'm off to Walgreens later today... I'll have a look and let you know if they fit the 1 liter bottle.

    Just realized the the folding handle setup would get in the way unless it was easily detachable.

    That looks pretty cool, though I need another cook kit or nesting mug like I need more knives. Oh wait, I just ordered another one of those too

    Yeah like I need to add another toy to my shopping list. Pretty neat though may have to see if WG has one here.

    I went to several Walgreens and didn't find any locally...ended up ordering one.

    I think it is well made, the cups that come with it are thick walled and insulated. A water bottle will not fit inside...but it will nest in a GSI or Spacesaver cup. I can get a small cartridge inside along with my Gigapower stove (without the carrying case) with some room to spare.

    It will also nest with a coffee can stove setup...something along the lines of the Swiss Volcano or the Jim Wood Fire Bucket system.

    Thumbs up

    Spork: I thought I spent a lot of time cruising these forums, but "You the MAN !!" Great find, this (especially at the price), and the size is right on for solo & duo trips... a bit of a disappointment that my SS water bottles won't fit, but, as you point out, a full set of stove and Tea Time accoutrements will fit inside with a little room to spare... I also like the cups since for sixty years, hot tea from SS has never been satisfactory...

    Keep up the good work, buddy !
