That black & white pic is magazine-worthy.
Love that knot wrench! Is that a cargo Ti Stake... nice job
Hobo style stove and hot chocolate!
Certainly getting some good time in with the HC kit Jarrod. Good job!
Well, this is a “non-action” photo but I just received this Christmas gift from my wife this morning! To answer an earlier question I had the HC cup and canteen do fit the early, I believe it’s the Alice style, canteen pouch. I think you could squeeze in the cup lid also but wouldn’t recommend it. Can’t wait to get out and make some coffee with this thing!
Mini brew stove testing, slow as molasses.

Out exploring the woods in Flagstaff!
Good time with the kids and got to take the dog to.
break in fishing
irreplaceable at any time of the year
Hey all, I’m eyeballin the MCC...leaning to a haversack instead.
Anyone know if the Emberlit Ti UL Folding wood stove fits in it the back of main pocket of the Mother with the canteen and cup and lid?
Also looking to find the right alcohol stove to use in the kit, maybe a @zelph model.

And that’s a good look Case XX Trapper as well
Using the HC cup to keep a cheap fuel tab stove far enough off the snow so it doesn’t sink
Just a few shots on some recent outings.
I have the same Ti stove and Mother in MC it fits great inside, I use the MC stove pouch from Emberlit. The canteen is a little snug getting in and out but it will work.
With the orange stove case before I got the MC case for the stove.
The MC stove case is tough to see in this winter outing pic.
My 3 stove cases and extra Ti cross bars for the stove.
Anyone ever hear what ever came of the Swedish mess kit that was suppose to have been coming out by HC?
The Crusader stove works well when using alcohol to boil water with the heavy cover canteen. I think I'm going to modify the Crusader stove to burn wood as well
Looks good. Would like to see your mod when you complete it.
I may wait until I have a spare stove to do it. I can't help but think that cutting a hole in the side will mess up the flow dynamics that makes the alcohol burner work so well.
Maybe I will add a stove door that you can open to add wood and close if you want to use the alcohol
Makes perfect sense.
quick fishing trip
It is hard a work. To get the emberlite ss in the pocket, I think a larger pocket/pouch is better
Please tell us more about the little one
It’s a @S.Gossman Micro Tusker. I’m not sure how many of them were made. It’s a pretty handy tool for EDC-Urban carry.
Pretty much all you need right there.
Nice skillet. Looks pretty thin and light. What brand is it?
Not much of a picture taking guy, probably because I don't have a smart phone, so this is it.
The canteen is for field use, but the cup I use all the time, for everything.
Like most of you here it's this + some sort of grill type setup. Do the starches in the cup and then the other stuff one the grill/fire etc...
I use it at home too, for my evening tea.
It's a pricey item, but seeing how much use it gets, it's not a big deal. It inspires minimalism and it really works.
No idea what brand the pan is. It’s an older one...
Not in the bush yet....but on the way.
always when I'm out the set is with me

I like that knife, @BradGad !
Yep, it’s a beauty! Really glad you brought us together. It’s become my go-to for pretty much everything.
I am carrying my HC kit in a Helikon Tex E&E pouch with a shoulder strap. They are an ideal combination! Has a nice sleeve pocket inside for the cup lid, stands up well in a tent or in a vehicle. Top is completely covered by pouch flap.
They wife was out tonight so I took the opportunity to go eat out.
The special tonight was diced squash with asparagus and bell pepper in rice. I seasoned it with a little soy, salt and pepper. I'm on a diet.
The Dude abides.
With craft, you can pack a haversack with everything an MCC will carry plus a jungle blanket. Totally changes the equation in favor of the haversack if you ever want to stay out with it.
The MCC will pack the Bushbox LF Ti. Great twig stove.
The MCC is just plain cool and more comfortable in warm weather than a daypack or ruck.
Once you get in the habit of remembering you have it, the MCC turns out to be really nice for close-to-home stuff... working around the property, doing yard work, DIY projects outside the house.
The MCC is only (potentially) worth it if you have the HC canteen kit.
The worth of the HC canteen kit isn’t clear until you have used it.
I always have my hat, my hatchet, and my HC canteen. Everything else is negotiable.
@BradGad other thread reminded me of this one. The HC is my only bottle on day kits, and usually my old hard container for water.
It ain’t bushcrafty, but it’s cool... get it!
Titanium has got a leg up over the nalgene oasis (also great) in the evaporative cooling department for sure.
