Does your cookset nest inside itself? Let's see it!
My current solo cookset is very lightweight, but it's pretty clunky. I've decided I'd like to streamline my setup a bit, and I'd like to see (or at least read) what everybody else is using…Sep 14, 2012 at 9:49 am #1912208
I have a few different set ups. Most of them nest, but on my current set up, my alcohol bottle has to go outside. My alky stove and lighter fits inside all of them though. I have made a separate reflectic cozy that fits around my pot and holds it all together with velcro patches. Sorry, no pics handy.Sep 14, 2012 at 10:03 am #1912213

The cup nests on the bottom of the pot.
The nested pot can hold my stove, lighter, gas can, and pack cloth.
You can also fit two gas cans inside the pot on longer trips (and pack the stove elsewhere).Sep 14, 2012 at 11:02 am #1912229
I use a Snow Peak Trek 700 to boil water. Inside it goes a lighter, 12-10 stove, towel, snow peak 450 mug, and two-piece caldera cone "fusion". Here's a few pics:

I try to nest a water bottle in my pot. In my snowpeak solo ti and I can get a nalgene in there but not a gatorade bottle. I am still trying to find a lighter bottle that will fit in it.Sep 14, 2012 at 11:52 am #1912240
Yes, indeed. I like nested kits, and the general concept that one can grab a single "item" and have a turnkey system in hand. Two of my set ups are nested kits:

Its a rather long thread but you'll see how my ultralight weight "nested cook set" looks and what it weighs.
Here is a view from the top.
One caveat, if you are brave enough to read through the entire thread you may notice a comment that I made abut being able to light my stove from the side. It only works that way if the stove is already warm and being used for a second time. A dribble of fuel onto the wick may let me light from the side on a cold start up but I haven't tried that as of yet.
The picture above shows a modified (lightened) MSR pot lifter nested inside of my stove. I added a wire bail to my cook pot and no longer carry the MSR pot lifter.
BTW, yes, I am a dedicated alcohol "stovie". ;-)
If I carry my 2 cup Foster's pot…
…I can even get the fuel bottle nested inside due to the added height.

This is my solo setup. It's good for a weekend. Anything longer and I have to carry a bigger fuel bottle.

I've been using this for a little while now and I'm extremely happy with it. Super inexpensive as well. I had to buy a bit of Ti foil, a Zelph pot and that was all.
Ti foil tray stove I bent up, Zelph fosters pot, small piece of lightload towel, hardware cloth pot stand, mini bic, plastic bag to keep the esbit stuff off the pot, and an alphalight spoon.
I made a little video a while ago, too.
