Advent Calendar - Door 11

Dear Santa,

time to talk about lightweight stove systems. One name kept on popping up in my research, that of Trail Designs. They developed this thing called the Caldera Cone, which is pot support/ holder plus windscreen rolled into one. Genius, I tell you, Santa. But that wasn't enough for them, and they developed something called the Caldera Keg-F - the lightest commercial cooking system on the market! It makes use of an [empty] Fosters beer can, which you use as a pot. It has a 12-10 stove, a fuel bottle and a cozy for the pot included, pretty nifty, I think. All of it can be transported inside the can, or inside a caddy to give a bit of extra protection. A sweet deal, and you won't need to rob a bank to get me one!
