Went out back to try out my Esbit one morning. Took some pics. Coffee and oatmeal.

I think if used in the right way the esbit is very capable. Your not going to cook a 5 coarse mail on it but for this small day kit it worked beautifully. The tab lasted just long enough to bring 2 cups of water to a hard boil. I like it.

An entire kit out of pouches.
Your not prepared if you can't remember what your carrying and where it is.

I have not had much luck with Esbit. It look me two tabs to get a standard canteen cup of water to boil. very annoying, but i do like the idea
