Looks like the new Entry IGT is a better built IGT slim!
 
Anyone have a preference between the adjustable legs and the fixed length legs for the IGT?

I just got into this system and went with the adjustable legs with a three-unit table, along with a bamboo table extension. Everything is great, but the table is so wobbly, and I'm thinking it is due to the adjustable legs. They don't fit very tight at the adjustable button point where the lower leg section slips into the upper section. And this is in my living room on a flat hardwood floor, I can't imagine how it would be outside on an uneven surface.
 
For me, the flexibility of the two heights, and the shorter storage requirement outweighs the slight wobbliness. That said, if I know I'm only gonna use a standing height section, I'll grab the fixed length legs...

You probably already know about the adjustable feet on the bottom of the legs, right?

Thanks, it is more apparent at the standing height, so thinking about getting fixed height legs for the IGT and maybe keeping the adjustable legs for the table extension. But. I see what you mean about dealing with the long length of the fixed height.

I'm wondering if I can figure out some kind of shim to stick in the space where the leg sections meet, but I don't want to stretch it and make it worse.

Yes, thanks, I was hoping the feet was the issue, but I only had to adjust one to get it flat.

I haven't tried it, but it seems to me that you could pull the inner leg out of the outer leg; the spring pin is inside the inner leg. Then just put a couple of wraps of aluminum tape around the inner leg, and reinsert.

Mark where the outer leg overlaps the inner leg at full extension, and don't apply the tape below that mark. You'll never see it once reinserted. Put a wrap at the top of the inner leg too, to keep it tight the whole length.

I'll take a look when I get home.

That may work, thanks!
 
So I’ve tried combing the 3k reply’s in this thread but haven’t found much on storage of your IGT units.
How do you all store and carry your burners and BBQ’s?
I tried a 1550 pelican case, it fit the BBQ box great but I can’t fit my Baja burner or cutting board in it as well.
Looking for a convenient packing solution.

I sort of pick which items I'm gonna take each time I plan to use it (I have alot of SP stuff). I use one of the canvas single-unit bags; I put a Flat Burner, and two single unit filler boards, one of which fits my IKEA tub that I use for a drop-in sink. I honestly don't take the BBQ boxes along unless we're tailgating, in which case we have more room in the SUV to take stuff, since we're not camping. I do take a stainless box which fits under one of the filler boards, and in it goes all the utensils and brackets and whatnot. The it all goes into my big Action Packer tub, and into the back of my Suzuki Samurai. It makes for a pretty lavish kitchen for such a small vehicle!

For me, the individual "modules" take up less room than putting everything in a Pelican box. But that's just me...

I use the 2U Gear Box from SP. I got it in a bundle deal from a local store here in Japan. They are expensive purchased on their own. With the bag, I can stack the BBQ Grill with the 2 burner stove into the bag plus a bamboo insert (also 2U) and a griddle.

I use a pelican 1600 and it fits the single BBQ box and baja burner perfectly, without being too tight or having too much excess space.

I'm using the Pelican iM2750. I've got my bbq box, flat burner, bamboo slide table, various S*P plates/bowls, pots, a couple of coffee making solutions, knife, hatchet, lanterns, torch, and bunch of other knick knacks stuffed in there. For the IGT itself, I'm using the Snow Peak Jikaro carrying case. It fits the IGT 3 with plenty of slots for corner tables, table extensions and other items, including a side pocket for poles.

I received two of the luxury low chairs in ivory today, got them 25% off the $200 USD ticket price (which for some reason, is cheaper than the domestic Japanese list price).

First impressions are positive; the canvas seems burly enough for high wear, the joints, despite many, feel sturdy. The back is more comfortable than I thought and is fairly ergonomic. You also can sit forward and lean back more by putting a small pillow behind your lower back. The slim profile and stored size is also good without sacrificing usability.

However, the quality of the "high quality natural [teak] wood" armrests was incredibly bad. The finish is smooth and sanded, but the wood itself was blotchy, with irregular grain patterning. I was less than impressed with the teak quality on the IGT Slim, but it's obvious now after seeing this correspondingly bad teak on these chairs that this was a conscious decision on the part of Snow Peak to source this quality of materials.
