"I used my kettle this weekend, it got windy and it snowed. The people with me could not boil water with their pocket stove because of the wind. I made them all tea.

I have been using a Kelly Kettle now for quite a while now, about 5 years and I have always found it to be an invaluable piece of equipment. My kettle has been used extensively while doing bush craft and survival activities and also when out on exercises with HM Forces army. Recently .........
Dear Kelly Kettle people,
I am, and always have been, a big fan of the Kelly Kettle. It was really interesting to read about how it was developed.

I was introduced to the Kelly Kettle when a friend came by for dinner one Christmas with a copy of "A Passion for Angling." We watched all 6 hours on Christmas Day. I was intrigued by the kettle Chris and Bob were boiling their tea water in. I thought something like that would be perfect for winter trout fishing here in North Carolina. Another friend in London arranged to have one drop shipped to me from Farlow's in the early 90's, before they were readily available in the US.

Just a note. Here in northern Minnesota we have been having Monsoon type weather, 34 of the last 41 days we have had rain! Constant and often very heavy rain! The lakes here are more than a foot above normal. That is a lot for here!
"I just tried my new Base Camp Kelly Kettle. It works EXACTLY as promised. From the time I put match to tinder until just under a half gallon of water was at a rolling boil took 6 minutes ( I timed it). I will be recommending the Kelly Kettle to everyone I knowview more...»
