    Compared to some WalMart is benign corporation. Search Halliburton, Monsanto and Bayer and you'll get my point.

    I use a 22oz MSR and a standard metal bottle holder.

    I got mine from Walmart and it works just great and I paid less there for the same China made product. Its your money, I just prefer to keep mine in my wallet.

    I am really glad that I got that 33 oz bottle and it fits into that Bell bottle cage really well.

    I wouldn't worry, they have a habit of doing that but I haven't heard of anyone not receiving their orders.

    By the way, no matter what size tank you have, it is always wise to have a msr reserve.

    I've been doing business with David Staton for three years and bought several kits and various parts. I've never had a problem with him and I always place my orders via phone. As long as he has what I want in stock, order and delivery happen within a week.

    I didn't hear back from a call I placed yesterday either, after placing my order on Monday, so I called again today. I spoke with someone (David?) who told me my order would ship on Monday. If that's true, I'm pleased! I don't have any doubts about the quality of the kit, and 1 week to get my "stuff" together seems reasonable. I will of course keep everyone posted....
