Almost perfect

I have owned many types of "outdoor" coffee makers, from the little espresso units to the lexan french presses. The Snow Peak drip is my favorite so far, but still not perfect. It is a little heavy, but it easily comes apart so it can be tucked away. Make sure you fold the filters like they show you on the package (I use #2s) or the filter bottom will break through. It easily fits on most mug sizes, including irregular ones like the old canteen cups. Very durable, and I have even started using it at home for quick one-cup "fixes".
*Update*
This has become my go-to coffee maker, I use it at home virtually every day and every time I go hiking. Sure, the Starbucks Via is lighter, but there is something to be said for the coffee making process. That being said, I would buy a titanium version in a second.
