    Saw these at Pipers. Small and cheap, maybe good for camping.

    Sorry, the title says aluminum and the bottle stainless.

    My deepest apologies. I think the sign on the shelf said aluminum. So maybe it’s a surprise.

    Volume? Assume they aren't an insulated/vacuum bottle.
    Wonder if the seal would work for camp fuel or if the gas would dissolve it...
    (MSR fuel bottles are ten times that cost.)

    I was in the new flagship MEC store in Vancouver on Sunday past. From the looks of things “no longer available” should be the new MEC slogan. The shelves were literally 75% empty. I did two laps in disbelief around the store and left without spending a dime.

    If you take the o-rings from the Pipers bottle cap to any Hydraulic fitting shop they should be able to hook you up with a petroleum safe equivalent for a few bucks. I would think the plastic cap would be safe enough.

    Same thing with the MEC here in Kelowna. Low in-store inventory, I often end up placing an order over the phone from the store and have to go back and pick it up in a few days. A lot of sport stores are like that here now.

    Hi Bob. Didn't know you were in Kelowna. My son is there working for K and F aerospace
