    Meths Bottles

    What bottles do those of you who use alcohol stoves carry your Meths in? I'm looking for something small that'll do a few decent burns, only for short half day hike purposes. Have a Maxpedition Jumbo and want something small enough to fit in the front pocket. Been scanning the shelves on various visits to the Supermarket but haven't come across any that suit. Seen Ashley use Energy Shock bottles on one of his vids, great idea but can I find any? Nope. Anyway, thanks in advance.

    Measure your pocket and go back the supermarket. Jars, bottles anything with a screw on top. There's got too be what you need.

    Thanks for your reply. Wasn't really looking at glass. It's a possibility I suppose but didn't really want anything breakable in the bag.

    Have a look on eBay for the bottles they keep tattoo ink in. Twist to and well made.

    You can find them as individuals too.

    Go to the pound shop I got some about a month ago otherwise most petrol stations sell the energy drinks in the small bottle.

    ASDA do a stainless steel hip flask, that's what I use, cost 2.50 on the roll back promotion thing. Just make sure you mark it up well so as not to get confused.

    I use those small 0.25 litre plastic Red Bull bottles. Perfect for me :-)
