Sol Advanced Cooking System
1 Review(s) for Sol Advanced Cooking System
Took the Sol system on a 5 day, 4 night ski tour in the High Sierra, May 11-15, 2011. There were 6 of us with 2 MSR white gas stoves. I brought my Sol with 230g canisters as backup and it outperformed the MSRs. We camped at 9,000'-11,000' with temps in mid-20's in mornings. Had a water source each camp so wasn't melting snow. The first night I slept with the 230g gas canister in sleeping bag. I also constructed a 1/4" high density foam cover for the canister that covered all but bottom (like a cozy for the fuel canister). I had boiled water twice in the .8L cup before the MSR could get one pot of boiling water. Super fast. It also worked great without sleeping with the canister, just keeping it in the tent overnight. The new regulator and newer burner seem to perform very well in cold temps and at 10,000'. Igniter worked every time as well.
