Backpacking Pot Cozy V3.0

I got a new pot that would provide more food in my belly, and take less room in my pack. So it was back to the drawing board to design a new cozy for it.

As the title suggests this is my third cozy. The first was designed to fit my MSR Titan Kettle. It was made of the same light cotton duck you see on this one. After hiking the Georgia section of the AT, I felt I needed to cut down on weight. I adopted my Snow Peak 600ml cup as a pot, and used some lighter cotton material. After 1300 more trail miles, I felt the pot was a little small to feed my hiker hunger, the fuel canister didn't fit inside, and that cotton started to wear through.

Design and materials after the break ...

My Trail Photos

I've been slowly wading through all the photos I took during my 2013 hike, and have uploaded them to Tumblr along with the rest of my AT pictures. You can see them at

This spring, I'll be getting back on the trail at the other end of this bridge, and heading north.
