Looking for feedback on this propane tank

Worthington 299889 10-Pound Aluminum Propane Cylinder



Like many of you I got screwed on the fiberglass light weight propane tank.




Found the aluminum model above. Have not been able to find the empty and filled weight of this tank.


Any one who has this tank and willing to share their experience is appreciated.


Would like to have less weight, but doing due diligence research before spending the money.

I'm pretty rough on equipment so my main worry would be denting the thing.

So - hijacking the thread....looks like the only composite tanks now available (after the lite recall) is the Ragasco. What options are out there?

I looked at the Regasco units but found a lot of chatter on msg boards that the ones sold by Amazon are re certified. Not sure exactly what that means but if I pay the big bucks want a current new manufactured unit.

oarboatman, your photo is not showing up on my screen, may be my browser tho.

Oarboatman,

I like the looks of that propane bag.

Do you know if they make the bags for both ten and twenty pound propane tanks.

I am rethinking that aluminum tank as opposed to a steel one with the padded bag.

I do canoe camping in the MO ozark streams and the bag would keep the inside of my canoe free of big scratches from steel propane tanks
