    I forgot about Trail Designs using the two stake design to raise the pot for different modes. What I meant though is punching holes for a stake as a second point of support in esbit mode so you can eliminate the silicon band – see my setup here:

    Thank you Jason for posting the details of your esbit stove. I contacted Traildesigns and ordered a cone after reading this. They were out of the Evernew Ti mugs (companion cup with handles) but he sent me a link on Amazon. I used it on a 7 day Sierra trip with great results. I really like the compact size, much smaller and more durable than my Caldera Keg GVP system. To keep the handles cool enough to use I keep the esbit at the opposite side of the cone while it's burning.

    The only drawback I found is that the beer band burned off the first time I used it. I ended up using stakes to hold the cup.

    BTW, this size cone also fits my Ruta Locura 550 and 850 ml Ti mugs, although the 850 is probably too big for efficient cooking.

    I use a 3rd Ti stake to hole the cone in place in windy conditions.

    The 3rd stake is run down through a bottom slot in the cone and into a hole I drilled in the Ti base sheet and into the ground, stake hook down against the cone slot hole. This stake is placed on the windward side of the stove, base Ti drilled hole sheet rotated to the windward side.

    You can drill two holes in the Ti base sheet for two stakes, one on each side of the cone, in very windy conditions. But of course only ESBIT or alcohol should be used in those conditions to pevent wood sparks from being blown away into flammable forest material.

    Andy, I assume the cone should also fit "sidewinder style" into the Ruta Locura 550 mug for packing?
