I got one as well. Looked brand new, still in packaging, etc. Quick processing, great price.

I have used it four times already in two weeks, and can say it's a bit of a game changer. The biggest pro, of course, is the weight and size--mine is less than half the weight of my old faithful steel firepan and can easily fit on my packraft for non-hiking required packraft trips. I also like the stable base and lower height. Cons are that the heat shield is kinda janky (nothing that your fire blanket can't compensate for), the multiple pieces, and the fact that its just overall harder to isolate the soot and grime that in its on my steel firepan where that stuff is all contained inside the pan and lid.

Anyway, highly recommended so far. Can't wait to see how it holds up over years of abuse.

Wasn't in the market for a fire pan, but plenty of buzzards are fans of the Pop Up Pit and these guys seem to be good members of the community, so I decided I'd grab one. I just unwrapped it and set it up and all I can say is - I wonder what the "new unused" ones look like. They must be gold plated or something. Mine truly looks unused and I'm really impressed with how quickly and easily it goes together, and it seems pretty bomber. $102 for the pan, heat shield and tri-fold grill to my door. Seems like a pretty good deal to me. Looking forward to getting it hot. Thanks Fireside and Triston!

Glad everyone is happy with the results! I've been trying to pick out the 'nicer' stuff for the MB crowd. We're down to our last couple now so if you were still interested in picking one up just shoot us a message.

Cheers,
Triston

I got mine too, $102.00, Firepan and Grill. I can't see where anyone ever used it, it came packaged like it was completely brand new. The only thing that concerns me is the grill, when in place on the pit, seems awfully close to the fire. An idea for the manufacturer would be to drill the posts it sits on to allow pins to be put in and raise the grill from the heat a little. Past that, I can't wait to light a fire in it. I row a Dory, and a conventional firepan is not only too big, but too heavy to carry. This seems the ideal compromise.

Mine was just delivered 2 days ago and looks brand new. If anyone is on the fence I'd definitely recommend getting one if you still can. I haven't used mine yet but very excited to try it out. The buying process was super easy and everyone in the company seems super nice and helpful. Thanks to Tristan and crew for taking care of us!

FWIW I grilled burgers and dogs on mine last weekend and it was perfect. I think you'll be happy with the grill's proximity to the fire.

Mine came today was brand new, un-used as well. Who buys things like this and just returns them with out even assembling? Sucks to be a seller. Had to watch the videos to make sure I had it right. Its a little bigger then the retarded old fire pan,( when you include a grate) but lighter and will be easier to pack. On top of that its bigger and is elevated which should be more enjoyable. I guess the only concern is the random wood you use most of the time. Wont be any burning a log across the top in half for instance. Going to be awhile before I use it, but definitely a more practical, classy set up.
