    Which stove are you planning on using the windshield on Adz? Have one of those myself, but it's no good for my little stoves. One is too low, which makes the shield heat up, and in turn heats up the top of the canister where it touches/clips on, and the F1 Lite throws the flame too wide, resulting in the same thing

    I'll be using my Optimus Crux bud. The guy in this and another video uses same setup and height looks about perfect. Its a really good stove, very light and the head also folds up.

    I've seen a few people using the crux with the shield. Looks like a good little setup.
    The stove I use mostly is the Alpkit Kraku. Has a good controllable output, and only weighs 35g. Fit's in the MSR Titan cup, with a Trangia burner, and heatproof disc too. Tiny little thing

    A pair of Norwegian army wind proof canvas over mittens. Just need to find some wool mittens to go inside them :-)

    Just had a look at my old army mittens. And this newer model is way better. The old ones only wen't midway up to my elbow, but these go all the way up to the elbow. And they are easier to put on as well. So I've changed the inner wool mittens over from the old to the new for now, as I beliieve the army has never changed them as something better has never been found.

    The old pair I'll put some felted wool mittens my mom made for me into. That way I have a spare set :-)

    In the pictures is old and new. You can see the trigger finger too :-)
