I love my Snow Peak hammer, and over the last decade it has seen some hard use. It’s nice that the copper head can be replaced when it gets all mushroomed out.

My newest acquisition along side I think my first. 450 double wall stackable, next to a well used 450 double wall with handles. The new one even came pre-dented, i will add more dents soon so no worries from me. The discoloration on the new is because I washed it and it's still wet, it has perfect finish.

My old Primus EtaPower pot was getting a bit long in the tooth. Base was crushed a bit so it doesn’t sit well on the burner and the Teflon started to come off on the inside. Poked around and figured out the Snow Peak Trek 900 cook set was an almost exact replacement size. Couldn't miss the opportunity to justify buying some Snow Peak kit! 75% of the time I just boil water in this for coffee in the morning but during ski season I heat up soup in it as well. The Primus burner and wind screen along with the gas bottle all fit just like the Primus pot. 7B77D5F7-8202-4002-838D-C037340111C9.jpeg 6E8F3F4D-E799-4C59-B555-4C6D864B8C6E.jpeg 37F3DA02-5FC8-4D3C-B1C4-B0430AE4962F.jpeg 9E99B964-7551-4C22-A317-45B43CD42A7C.jpeg

how long id you own that?
 
Ok call me geeky if you want. I replaced my cast iron Lodge skillet for a All Clad stainless mostly due to cleaning and on going maintenance. In the PNW it is often damp or humid. No mater how diligent I was with upkeep, cleaning and maintenance my cast iron had to be seasoned a couple times a year. With a couple pounds of food in it it was down right heavy.

All Clad had a big sale this spring so I jumped at nearly 50% off.

To my surprise the All Clad is almost 1/3 the weight!

Seems to me its a better weight reduction than the Death Bagel Recovery Pulley!

Has anyone ever used a SnowPeak Tent? I am thinking about getting the Amenity Dome M. In the past all my ground tents have been Nemo as I needed to watch the weight for backpacking. FF52EDE6-F5D5-414D-A323-9D1FEC81E430.jpeg

Although I have not actually camped in one. I have had my hands on many, both packed and unpacked. I always found them to be too bulky when packed and similarly heavy for backpacking use. No doubt quality gear, but if not used for car camping, better to stick with Nemo IMO.
 
I have my first bit of Snow Peak kit on order. I’ve had a Kettle #1 on my wish list for years. I was looking the other day, and it is listed as out of stock or discontinued at all the usual places. Checked Snow Peak’s site and they still list it for $19, so I placed an order.

I don’t know how well it will work, but at that price, I don’t want to miss out if it really is being discontinued. It can always join other stuff on my shelf of misfit toys. On my twig stove, I currently use an aluminum kettle like the GSI one that I've had for about 40 years, but I've been tending to get away from aluminum.

I've been holding out for an Eagle Products Norwegian Camp Kettle with the waxed canvas bag, but haven't convinced myself the spend the money for one.
