Snow Peak Addiction

We had the call with Snow Peak USA yesterday. I had the impression there were 35 'groups' of some sort. We'll all be staying in provided Snow Peak tents but we can park all our gear alongside. Each group will get tent/fly, chairs, lighting and some swag as explained above. They will have 4 IGT setups to share in addition to common areas for coffee, bar, fire. We can use any and all of our own gear irrespective of brand.

Some planned events and a lot of free time.

It looks like we'll take a ~16 day trip there and back. Dallas > Rockies > Moab/Arches/Canyonlands > Wasatch Mtns > Snake River or Sawtooth (suggestions between Salt Lake and the Oregon border?) > Columbia River Gorge > Mt Hood for the meeting. Then back: Hood > Kootenai > Glacier > Tetons > Yellowstone > Rockies > Dallas.

Going trailerless so it should make for interesting packing :D
Sounds like an awesome trip!
 
Hi, I'm from Germany and need your help.

I would like to order a Snow Peak GigaPower LI Stove or the Double Burner Standart Stove Gas Burner.

Has anyone tested both gas burners? What is the quality of the two gas burners? Which one would you recommend? Currently I have the Snow Peak Baja Burner, the burner head is a bit small because of the heat distribution!

I have already asked Snow Peak US about the burner diameter, unfortunately they could not help me. Does anyone know the diameter of the burner heads?

I am happy about numerous answers and

stay with best regards from Munich Germany

I'm considering the purchase of a SP Single Action table to double as a partial platform for a truck camper dinette bed. It would have to bear the brunt of the weight of a person, though our friends don't weigh too much. I'd appreciate input from the SP aficionados on the viability of the table as a support for a platform bed. An important thing we learned from our 3-year road trip was to not have things that could only be used in one way or one location.

thanks,

Hi Robert, I will have a chance to check out both stoves at the same time in a couple weeks. There is a Snow Peak camping event coming up in Portland. They said they will have the two stoves setup for us to use. I don't know much about the Li stove, but it looks more for high heat applications like wok cooking.

I have the double burner and am happy with it. I haven't tried a slow simmer (to cook rice, for example). The quality is typical SP. The grates on the two burner stove can be adjusted independently so it's raised up about an inch or so more from the burner.

I have the SP Single Action medium table. I would not use it as a partial bed. It doesn't look like it would support the brunt of the weight as you want it to do. The SP website has a PDF manual for the medium that warns against putting infants or small children on the table. I would assume the low table would have the same warnings since it's a similar setup

Thanks for this. I guess I'll make a table out of marine grade plywood and put some legs on it.

Edit: I wonder if the SP manual warning refers to the table being used as such. I would have the two pieces held with supports located on the benches.

what do you think?

I think if you put supports under the table so that you are not relying on the table's fold out legs to support the weight, then I think that would be fine.
 
Sorry ... newb here. I've been pouring over ideas for a camp kitchen that could fit under my 4Runner's sleep platform, and I've decided on the IGT. Can anyone tell me what the actual height of the IGT and Bamboo Extension is? The website dimensions I've seen vary between .5 - 1", and that half an inch makes a huge difference in how I can configure the storage. Any help/insight is appreciated!

Also - REI only has the IGT4 and very limited IGT related items. Is their exclusive SP deal over? Anyone else stocking them in the states? It looks like Campsaver has a good selection, but not sure they run deals like REI does.

The IGT frame is 1" thick. The bamboo extension table is also 1" thick , when measured at the leg sockets, which is the thickest point.
