Thank you Pam W.- Re: Owner Review: FireLite Titanium Esbit Wing Stove
- PLEASE READ THIS EMAIL IN FULL. IT IS MOST IMPORTANT!
Thanks for your Owner's Review. It has been added to the Owner
Review Queue and will be picked up by an Edit Moderator soon. Do
not worry if nothing happens with it for several days. All our
Editors are volunteers and your report will be subject to an
official edit within fourteen days. If you have not had a response
from an Edit Moderator via the Yahoo Groups list within this
timeframe, please let me know directly at jdeben@....
To assist in this process, if this is your first Owner Review we ask
that you post only ONE Owner Review for edit at a time. Our
experience is that it is more efficient for both the Editors and
yourself, if you post your first review, have it edited, approved
and uploaded before you post your second and subsequent reviews.
This way we can work with you on addressing any standard BGT policy
edits which you can incorporate into your second and subsequent
reviews before submission.
If you are new to BackpackGearTest.org, welcome to the community!
The Editors will work with you, within their own time constraints,
to get your first two Owner Reviews approved and upload in a timely
manner. Once these first two Owner Reviews have been approved and
you have submitted your Tester Agreement you will be eligible to
start applying for Tests. If you'd like more assistance or guidance
with the process you can request a mentor by sending an email to
Jennifer P, the mentor coordinator, at (jennifer.pope@...).
You may receive edits or comments from other members of the group.
These edits and comments, while not official, should be considered
carefully, and if you find them substantial, revise and re-post your
review. Incorporating member edits and re-submitting to the list
will usually result in a better review, as well as making things
easier for the official Editor. Please put REVISED in the subject
line of your re-submitted review, if you take this route or make any
changes to your review BEFORE the review has been taken by an Edit
Additionally, it is important for you to monitor the Yahoo Groups
list to keep track of the progress of your Owner Review. Once an
Editor has taken your OR and made the necessary edits they will post
their comments to the list with EDIT in the subject line. Once you
have incorporated these edits into your review please use REPOST in
the subject line. When your OR has been approved by the Editor they
will use APPROVED in the subject line.
If you'd like to keep track of the progress of your OR, the entire
Owner Review Queue is posted to this yahoo group list on Fridays.
If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask via
the list or contact me directly.

- Hi Pam,
Thanks for the review for the call. This is a stove? Just kidding.
Colleen showed me hers. I thought it was a three person folding
Edits follow. You can put it here;
EDIT: OK, this took some digging. The actual company is Backpacking
Light, backpackinglight.com is the online presence. The works seems
to be owned by Beartooth Mountain Press, or is it just the publisher?
FireLite seems to be a house brand. I would say go with "Backpacking
Light". (Whew )

EDIT: this link is trying to go to a defunct OR on the BGT site
***Stated weight: 0.38 oz (11 g)
***Measured weight: 0.4 oz (11 g)
Edit: since you are dealing with an item made for and by you gram
weenies ;-) I have no problem with you using the more accurate 10.8
and 11.3 g numbers. Your people will like it better

into the horizontally oriented segment that fits flat under the
EDIT: I am seeing an extra space before segment in the HTML
***This configuration is designed to allow the stove to be allowed
with different sized cups and pots.
EDIT: "used" with different sized cups
I have used the FireLite stove with FireLite 14 g size solid fuel
EDIT: conversion? (0.48 oz)
***Originally I was interested in using it with a pot I made from a
Foster's beer can, but I found the shape of the stove and the shape
of the beer can did not get along. This was disappointing to me
Comment: I was looking forward to drinking lots of Fosters in the
interest of cooking. (He he)
***The stove does seem optimally configured to keep the fuel tablet
at the right distance from the bottom of the pot, based on the fact
that one tablet
Edit: I am seeing an extra space at "the fact"
***Usually it takes from 4-7 minutes to boil a potful of water,
Edit: pot full
***This prevents a lot of residue from being left on the stove
Edit: I see an extra space after "of"
- Thanks Ray. I made all the corrections and got it uploaded.
