The GSI Tripod allows you to prepare rapidly or gradually, just adjust the length of the chain. It allows you to keep coffee warm but never too fiery to drink if fine-tuned at the suitable height. You can use the GSI Tripod for numerous applications besides coffee. We use during the day to keep water warm to wash hands and face. The Tripod has an endless list of applications and is and should be in on every camping list. The GSI Tripod with chain weights a hefty 9 lb. 13.5 oz.
When you collect up the Tripod gloveless you will detect soot all over hands. This is a natural occurrence with Tripods. Use gloves after it has cooled and wrap in a plastic bag. It may take two and tape it tightly; this will keep it from staining clothing and your vehicle.
