Burned myself pretty nicely with my Solo stove pot handles during a recent camping trip.  What do you suggest for a 'pot holder' that is lightweight and durable?

I'm kinda simple. I just use the leather gloves I carry. If it's still to hot I wrap one glove around the handle and then grab that with the gloved hand.

Talk is cheap...lets compare fur checks.

I just use one of my sleeping socks doubled over or a wool mitten/glove of whatever sort I'm carrying.

I don't typically carry leather gloves. But that is a good idea...I could cut a small piece of leather for that purpose. Last time I was out, I actually used a sock but it had a bit of nylon in it and it shrunk up pretty quick!

I would be careful with some synthetics that melt. Laminating yourself would suck.

+1 on melting synthetics really sucking when they get on to you. I would say you could find a silicone hot pad or mit or trivet at Walmart or Target and cut it to whatever size you want or need. Here's a link to one I just found on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B009O0GCH2/ref=asc_df_B009O0GCH24752268/?tag=hyprod-20&creative=394997&creativeASIN=B009O0GCH2&linkCode=df0&hvadid=167132167113&hvpos=1o2&hvnetw=g&hvrand=1028005746033700989&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=m&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9013452&hvtargid=pla-273829586290 . I don't have that one, but I have one similar in my kitchen, never had issues with it. The one I have is prolly 8"x8" and weighs like 3oz. If weight is a concern, a sharp knife could half the weight real quick...

yeah, that hot nylon melting up real good absolutely did suck! I checked out that link gokartz and can't believe I hadn't thought of that. My wife has something like that she uses when she's in the kitchen. BTW strow, I like the signature. Been a trapper for a long long time now and so glad I don't have to rely on a fur check. XD

Appropriate gloves or socks have always worked for me.

good ideas--leatherman will be in the tool roll anyway when hiking. and I'm going to check out the recycled firefighter stuff too, sounds pretty cool. I'm looking to replace my leatherman Sidekick with a PS4. the sidekick is over 3X the weight of the ps4.

I have the tiny Leatherman pliers in my heavy recon. Channel lock sells a tiny pair of channel lock pliers that is an option. I keep a small COTTON handkerchief in my cook kit as well

I use a small sheet of silicon (silicon pot holder or just a sheet). Works as a hot pad and can also be used for gaskets and o-rings in a pinch. Cheap and light.

Dude. I don't know why I never thought about multitool pliers. Solid call Evan. - J
