I have a couple of questions. What is the wool blended with and what percentage is the blend? Also, what material is the fleece made out of? Fleece is one of those funny things that can be made from a myriad of materials, polyester, cotton, or wool. So which is it?

Anyone own both this and the PCS? If so is the stove itself physically shorter from top to bottom is you put them on a desk? I ask because with the PCS system once you put the canister and stove inside (not threaded to the canister and with the stabilizer legs inside the stove and the pot support upside down over the canister) you're only left with about 1\4" of space (which is taken up by the igniter). I can't see how all that will fit in here since it's over half an inch shorter, unless of course the stove itself is shorter.

Zooming in I took a shot that it would mate to my summer slumberjack diablo sleeping bag and it does. It uses a #8 zipper which is pretty standard. I ride a motorcycle cross country and encounter many temperature changes so I wanted to have a light summer bag to carry and use this as a liner to increase it's temp rating which is does nicely. So nicely in fact that my 40 degree extra wide summer bag has been toasty down to 18 degrees. Although it was helped with wool socks, long johns and a technical top similar to under armour (Sub Zero).

This is NOT a thin "liner" like some others. Which you can see by the stuff size and weight. It is very thick and plush which is exactly what I was looking for. It is also a tad wider than most at 34". But it is stretchy.

It's useful as a ~50 or so degree liner as long as you're out of the wind. This fleece is not windblocker fleece.

Anyone know the type of zipper this uses? I would like this to double as a liner for myself solo or to zip to a sleeping bag to use a double.

I'm pretty sure this is one of the only iso\butane or lindel valve compatible blow torches out there. And if you also happen to use iso\butane stoves or lanterns this would make a great addition to your expedition kit if you're on a motorbike or 4x4.

BC put a little gag as to not use it for any DIY welding projects, however the torch gets plenty hot enough to break down any type of automotive glue or hardener (loctite, certain JB weld products, e.t.c.)

Out of sheer boredom I seared a steak for about a minute on each side holding this about 8-12" away from said steak. They were small fillet mignons (about 5" around and 1" thick). They came out a little past medium well but they were great.

After that, more horseplay ensued and someone had a metal cookie sheet and was going to use his stove\oven contraption to try and make pilsbury chocolate chip cookies.I took said cookie tray, placed a dozen cookies on, and balanced the tray on two stoves, I then proceeded to blowtorch the bottom of the cookie tray (it was metal, not aluminum though). After about 7 or so minutes we had soft and chewy chocolate chip cookies. yum!
