    Gas Growler Deluxe

    Have you ever wondered what happens to those green propane bottles you use to power your camping grill? Does it keep you up at night? The Gas Growler Deluxe fits the same amount of propane as five of those single-use canisters, and can be refilled over and over again. It comes with a rugged carrying case, and can easily be topped off at your local propane service station.

    • A refillable no-waste solution to cooking at the campsite
    • One Growler fill costs about the same as one single-use green bottle
    • Includes a 4in hose that attaches to all your familiar stoves
    • Protective carrying case roomy enough for hose and wrench storage

    Neat & protected tank - Case is $$$

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size

    For what it is, it is overpriced. 5lb. gas tanks at wal-mart are 60$ or so, and a hose is 15$ or so. So out the door its probably around 85-90$. So you can figure 50-60$ or so for a carrying case & marketing. The 4' hose that comes with it worked perfect for car camping; hooked up grill and stovetop (at hip height) on flat terrain and had enough length to get some distance between heat source & tank. I personally like all my camping gear organized in cases/bags etc., and this case is specifically made for tank & hose; makes for a nice neat protected package. I put on floor of car behind drivers seat and it backseat with no problem. No more "clanging" sounds when something hits your tank or you bump it against something. The carrying case is sturdy/heavy duty (time will tell if it can take a beating). Like I said, I prefer all my gear nice & neat & visible on the shelf, so when I need it I can just grab it knowing its all set to go with hose inside. My hardware store charged me 4.50$ to fill it, so that was pretty swell. It also has the "cool" factor with the carry case; the style/colorway/strap has all the looks of a "cool" product. I don't know anything about the company history or their other products but it appears they are obviously going for a certain demographic. It caught all the guys attention when I brought it out; asking wtf that thing is? as they grabbed an IPA from their Y**i coolers. So, there marketing appears to be working. NOTE: this was also a b-day present from my wife who demanded I pick something out. UPDATE: sure enough 1 week after I got it, my brother found same exact thing at REI for 130$.

    This is nothing new and is pricey

    This is no different than the typical 5 lb or 10 lb propane tanks you can buy at any local hardware store. Plus they have different sizes from which to choose (tall and skinny to short and fat). Perhaps this has an extra “carrying case jacket” but there’s no need, since the typical tanks have side carrying handles. Why would you even want the case. I purchased my 5 lb tank for around $50 and it has quality brass hardware connections and hose length of my choice, made by a reputable propane company.

    I don’t understand what makes this three times more expensive than a typical 5 gal tank. Must be the marketing and the impractical but colorful carrying case. Just pass on this and spend your money more wisely. Nothing novel to see here.
