Bushbuddy (BB) Ultra Stuffsack
But the pot will get some soot on it from cooking over wood, and BPL sent it in a mesh stuffsack that won't keep the soot off the other gear in my pack. So I made a quick one out of some silnylon I had laying around.

|I was going to make a round bottom to fit the round stove, but at this size it wouldn't add any weight to make a square bottom, and it's much easier. Here's the 1100mL pot next to the stuffsack. The bottom of the sack is facing the camera to show how it's squared off.|
|Just a normal drawstring to keep it closed. I folded down the corners before sewing in the channel so it would have the little notch. No real reason...just wanted to do something different. I scrounged the little cordlock from another stuffsack.|
|And here's the BB, pot and stuffsack next to a 1L bottle for size comparison. There's still some room inside the sack for a couple odds and ends. I'll probably keep a bandana or nomex glove in there for lifting the pot when it's hot. That would be more multi-use than a pot lifter. And I'll keep my firesteel inside.|
|Since so many folks are concerned about weights, here they are. My scale is accurate to 1/8 oz and 2 g. Of note, the BB is listed as 5.1 oz (144.6 g) and weighed at 5 oz (140 g), and the pot is listed as 3.03 oz (86 g) and weighed at 3-1/8 oz (90 g). So the total BPL weight (minus the stuffsack) is 8.13 oz (230.48 g) and mine was 8.0 oz (228 g)...looks like BPL's listed weights were accurate.
