Love it!

Our group used the pop-up fire pit on a 2 night trip just recently and we all loved the performance. A lot of real estate to play with so the logs are far less like to fall out of the fire (a problem we have had with the Cambridge fire pan).

Overall, the fire we had was nice and hot and the embers were mesmerizing. It just had a nice look and feel as far as fires go. We were all really impressed with it. I hope the pop-up pit continues to perform for the long-term. We did not use the grill this time around so can't report on that.

Purchased the pit and tri fold grill during the memorial day sale. Used it on two night Chama trip. The weight and size of the pit is nice and it's easy to set up. Cooked one dutch oven meal on it and it did fine. With charcoal briquets a lot more ash falls through than with wood. Way more than 2 tablespoons. Added bonus of this pit is it's easy to pop off the screen to dump ash into your ash can. It's also interesting watching the fire draw air from underneath.

Anyone taken one of these on the middle fork of the salmon yet this year? I’m planning on bringing mine next week and and there’s no backup fire pan in the group, so I’d like to know for sure that the rangers are cool with it. Side note, had this thing out on the Owyhee earlier this year and it kicked ass. Super sturdy even as a featherweight.

MFS or Selway acceptance?

WaZach, had mine on the MFS two weeks ago. All good. Used it considerably for the first time also and it worked great. Have a fun trip.

That sounds right, I wasn't positive on the duckies and it seems like everyone else had at least a few if not a whole flock. I saw a few of your group and pointed out your pop up pit to the girls on the front of my boat, its a small world.

I recently purchased the full monty. Pop Up Pit w/ Grill accessory and I have to say it's pretty awesome. My favorite part it the lightweight and portability. I also own the Camp Chef Fire Pan and as great as that is, 47 pounds vs. 8 pounds is no contest. 24"x 24" is plenty of room to grill for a medium to large group. That said, I've only used mine a couple of times so far, but I really like it. Seems to hold up well and we've had some good size fires in it with no issues to date. I would like to see a NPS certification attached to this product as I can bet this issue is holding off a lot of potential buyers.
