[at-l] Caldera Cone

I replaced the 1 oz plastic cup with a more substantial one.
I like the plastic container because it is the right size to hold a quart size ziploc open & rigid so I can just add water & not have to clean the cup.

Ditto the sharp edges.

I de-burred/rounded the edges of mine with a bit of Emery cloth.

Also got rid of the plastic cup in favor of a fitted stuff sack.

I've used the Caldera Cone on a number of trips. The cone is a little hard
to manage because of sharp edges and it bends easily. It ships with a
plastic cup, but it's not practical for long-term use.

Tin Man sells a couple products that I found were worth the little added
weight for the convenience and protection they provide:
