This cooking system is pretty popular set-up from previous hikers – it’s a nice combination of light weight, but reliable equipment. It’s simple – not too much, not too little.

I have experience with my stove set-up and it hasn’t failed me yet, water boils quickly and the pots are easy to clean.

I’ve included a Ultralite Nalgene – uncommon for most hikers, but Nalgene bottles have worked for my consistently for years. I’m dedicated because they work, so I’m willing to add a couple ounces (over a gatorade/smart water bottle).
I have two water purifying systems – the Sawyer Squeeze will be my primary and the Aquafira Treatment pills as backup. The biggest downside to the pills is that they take 20+ minutes before the water is safe to drink, in previous experience I haven’t tasted the off flavors that some people experience with the pills.
