    No sir. I came close to buying a package by Kelly. I really liked the design and think it would be great for my kayak outings. They look well made and if I do pick one up I'll post my thoughts on it in here.

    I have one. It works well, and even better with charcoal briquettes. I have the large one and put 4 briquettes in. I timed it with a friend and it boiled water in 2 minutes. I got the kit and boiled water while cooking wieners at the same time. Very versatile. Not long after I bought mine they came out with a stainless version which I would have preferred.

    I have a large anodized Ghillie Kettle , and two small MKettles (canteen pouch Ghillie Kkettles).

    LOVE THEM

    you can burn literally anything in them. I often burn pure fat wood kindling in mine - The more creosote that builds up in the chimney and ignites, the faster the boil. This is the one time you want to take advantage of a chimney fire.

    Ghillie/Kelly Kettles are the ultimate survival tool for sterilizing water - for the simple reason that no matter where you are - city , wilderness, you can boil water quickly and you can do so by burning anything in them.

    I've used grass, leaves, twigs, kindling, newspaper, fire gel, alcohol, gas/diesel/oil/turpentine/wax soaked sawdust/wood pellets, dried deer pellets, cotton balls soaked in Vaseline, candle stubs, methyl hydrate , fat wood, birch bark, dried moss, dry rice soaked in kerosene, paper shreds , crisco soaked egg carton pieces, etc.

    Once you realize how versatile these chimney kettles are, esp in disasters.... you'll want like 10 of them. I keep one in the truck in my kit when driving.

    I am waiting for these to become locally available for some time now, the Mkettle would be great for a backpack, also the Adventurer + cooking kit for camping with the family.

    Anyone using Kelly kettle? The Trekker and Scout with kit are fairly priced, stainless steel - should be heavier, but very durable.

    I've looked at s Kelly kettle several times.... Looks like a fun tool. Never took the plunge though. I find the a bit large to pack in a backpack.

    I carry a lot of sh@t :D
    The packed dimensions look fine. They are available for 24 hours delivery, so I think that I should put them on my Christmas list :rolleyes:

    Can't go wrong with either the Kelly or Ghillie brands . I recommend stainless for the truck / camp , and the hard anodized for hiking.
