I do love titanium. I own two Ti road-bikes and lots of Ti backpacking cookware. In fact, I love Ti so much that I had a big rod of it installed in my shoulder. Okay, that really wasn't a choice I made. But here, for the price, volume and weight, I'll stick to my Kleen Kanteens, Hydrapak Stash bottles, Nalgenes, etc.. Just a tough one to justify for me.
