    Solar. Either one will charge my phone. Flashlight is 250 lumens with 18 hour runtime (on low); settings are high, low and flashing. I will use foil to make the lantern directional as needed. Dependable brand. These should be very handy car camping and at home.

    Replaced my Trangia spirit burner and stand with a WhiteBox stove and replaced my Trangia mini pot with a Snow Peak bowl. My complete cookset/kitchen went from 423 gms/15 oz to 226 gms/8 oz. Everything fits in a single ziplock bag.

    Titanium chopsticks.

    Way too heavy:p
    You can shave more weight than that.
    Here the same items but in titanium (except for the fuel bottle). 210g.
    Note ginormous Vargo 900ml pot.

    Exchanging the big 900ml Vargo pot for a LifeVenture ti mug for cooking, yet more weight can be shaved. The below = 190g.

    Im slightly surprised, that you use a plastic ZipLoc bag, as you have gone on about the enviroment at length (a small fabric bag doesnt weigh much and will last far longer. I usually make my own - for example for holding the gear pictured).

    Goes for some of your other items as well for that matter; titanium gear will outlast you and can be handed down for use by others instead of using synthetic gear. Dont get me started on the (wooden?) chopsticks and the impact of the many million made annually.

    Arent they great! I carry them as well at times and also have the titanium straw.

    Havent seen the Keith square handled ones. The chopsticks pictured are relatively short, which makes for easy carry in a pocket and after a little while, one doesnt miss the extra length of traditional (Japanese?) chopsticks.

    And yes, the main reason I bought them was to not use disposable chopsticks. It most certainly adds up, as you say.

    I can deal with 226 grams vs 210 grams.

    Just don't over pay. Some sellers must think these are made of precious metal. I picked this one up for $22.75 plus $3.50 shipping.

    I have the square solid ones and the old straight super straw (made for smoothies). Sticks are quite long but a little thin for my fingers but between that and the straw, works good! In winter, I often bring Kimchi Soondubu Jjigae (tofu stew with pork I add) on my hikes. When I’m down to mostly liquid only, it’s cool enough to slurp up the remaining soup and small bits with the super straw and not burn my lips.

    I put off getting a Bugout for a long time, but am really happy that I finally pulled the trigger.
