      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

idea Survey for product idea of mine

Recommended Posts

Have been tossing around an idea for a new ultralight cooking product geared towards climbing/mountaineering/ultralight backpacking. I would appreciate if some of you guys could take a little survey I made relating to the product! I will probably use the information a quick practice pitch to my entrepreneurship class (am a college student). If people take the survey or express interest and I do end up following through with my idea, I'll probably offer it on here dirt cheap first! Link to survey is below.

Cool, I took it. I'd be interested to hear what your idea is.

 

Your first question says check all that apply but only lets you select one. What type of cooking gear I take depends on a lot of things.

 

Fast and light climbing with my bivy gear: jetboil and freezedried food

Winter climbing where i need to melt snow: MSR xgk

Backpacking where I want to cook more: MSR whisperlight plus pot, pan, mug

ultralight backpacking solo: alcohol stove, ti pot, small plastic cup (whole thing with fuel is like 6 oz or less)

 

I had a solid fuel esbit stove in scouts, haven't used it since.

Questions/issues for me for mountaineering/snow camping would be:

Windproof/resistance

Capabilities of snow melting

Able to deal with sitting onto of a shovel or hanging for snow melting

 

Backpacking questions:

Heat control(simmering?)

Size/shape

 

I'll be curious to see what you come up with.

Is this solid fuel coal by any chance? Because that's been done before.

I like stoves that hang for alpine bivvies.

I like stoves that simmer for trips where I actually want to cook real food.

On trips longer than two or three days, I carry a pressure cooker so I can eat real food without waiting all night for it to cook.

 

nine minutes to boil!? in most conditions I can build a fire and get a quart boiling quicker than that...
