The Emberlit UL is a winner. Packs flat and light. Easy to assemble. Easy to use.
I do highly recommend carrying some kind of ignition aid, whether its PJCB's, fatwood, or something else.
Ignition was so much easier with just a few fatwood shavings in the mix.
The LiTech Kettle is a good pairing with the stove. The hard anodized aluminum is light.
I'm able to nest my SnowPeak 450mL mug inside along with some tea, coffee, etc.
The kettle holds plenty of water, enough to easily hydrate a freeze-dried meal AND have ample tea or coffee.
The kettle fits the stove nicely so that the bottom absorbs most of the heat. I did not get a lot of side flares.
The lid does not fit extremely tight, but it's easy to put one finger on the lid handle when pouring.
The advantage of the lid is that, if you want to remove it for stirring, you don't risk upsetting the stove.
The plastic handle gets warm to the touch, but offers plenty of insulation to prevent burning fingers.
ETA: Found the insect. It's a "cricket hunter" wasp.
