Titanium Bot 700

rated 4 of 5 stars The Bot 700 is a well-designed, simple but multi-functional piece of equipment. The major changes from its predecessor, the 1L Bot, are a smaller capacity/size, lighter weight, and the addition of folding handles. I was impressed with the Bot 700’s ability to serve as a pre-soak/water container, pot, mug, and in a myriad of other functions and processes. With the exception of some difficulties with cleaning and cross-threading the lid, I found the Bot 700 to be worthy of consideration for my ultralight… Full review

Ultimate Fire Starter

rated 4 of 5 stars The Vargo Ultimate Fire Starter is a good idea and handy gadget that functions as a spark lighter with ferrocerium (ferro) rod and bellows. I would recommend it to folks who like wood stoves and building fires, but there are better options if all you need is a spark lighter to light a stove, as the dual function and convenience result in a couple of areas that could improve. Vargo subtitles this device with “Just add fuel”, and that is fitting.  The Ultimate Fire Starter (hereafter called UFS… Full review

Alcohol Fuel Bottle

rated 5 of 5 stars A simple but neat solution to the problem of how best to carry alcohol as stove fuel. Tough polyurethane construction, a flip top, and measuring lines allow the user to easily carry, dispense, and keep track of fuel usage. There is something to be said for simple solutions that perfectly fulfill one's needs. The Vargo Alcohol Fuel Bottle is just what its name suggests—a bottle one uses to carry alcohol as fuel. It has become my go-to fuel bottle for my alcohol stoves in recent weeks.Use For backpacking,… Full review

1.3 Liter Titanium Pot

rated 4 of 5 stars This is an excellent lightweight pot that has been very durable over the last two years. Heats relatively evenly, and has several thoughtful features including sturdy handles and vent/drain holes. I have used this over wood, alcohol, and Esbit tabs and the pot performed well. A slightly loose lid fit and not quite foolproof non-stick surface are the only negatives. Note of Clarification:  I initially posted this as the "non-stick" pot as my memory failed me that the previous version of this pot… Full review

Ti-Arc Pack

rated 1.5 of 5 stars Bling backpack, in beta. The market Vargo is aiming for with the ti-Arc can be worked out by three statistics: the median fit for its waistbelt is over 40", the base model costs three hundred dollars, and its capacity is that of a generous daypack. Rich weight-weenies out for a stroll & a picnic? Right... ...well, not far off as a judgement, if a bit unkind. The basics are good—arguably very good: the (vented titanium) lumbar pad, its padding, and the associated waistbelt assembly are absolutely… Full review
