Description

Designed specifically for the transportation of flammable fuels and safe filling of the spirit burner. The unique design of the safety cap allows you to pour liquid into your burner without removing the cap. The valve has a screw top locking mechanism which when closed prevents the valve accidently opening whilst the fuel is being transported, preventing leaks. Once the screw is opened meths can only flow out of the bottle if the top of the valve is depressed.

  • Ideal for camping, hiking, backpacking, and family days out.

Reviews

5.0 out of 5 stars This bottle is a perfect size for a weekend trip out to carry your fuel for either a hurricane lantern or Trangia stove. The locking top is good to stop accidentally been pushed open and the contents spill out. The pouring once opened is steady. The bottle itself seems to be made of a tough plastic and would stand up to the general knocks and bumps of a trail hike. There is a loop at the top should you wish to add a carabiner clip. All in all, pretty good bit of kit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Had to return the original, which was damaged, but the seller gave me a postage label so no complaints. As this is plastic its light and its thick enough to be stiff. So, thumbs up. Which is why the deep gouge in the surface was more than cosmetic and why I returned it. So will need to see the longevity in a packed rucksack.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome product, have had my transit since 1994 and it’s still going strong. The original fuel bottle became corroded so replaced it with one of these. Love the pour/safety spout and the fact the bottle will not corrode. Recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars Tough enough to survive life on the trails, and easy to use safe design.
Good weight too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works as expected and nozzle is great. The nozzle on this bottle is really great. No chance of leakage when placed in backpack.

Conclusion

As you can see from the reviews, this one is a winner. I say this because I have one. I find it sturdy and light. It has a great safety feature, just unscrew, press the top to release the fuel, tighten back down and leak free.

Methylated Spirits or denatured alcohol are best used for a Trangia stove.
