silent burner caps

I have seen these on eBay and can't help but wonder why they don't just buy a stove that is quiet in the first place? The prices on some of these is crazy. Way more than the stove sold for initially.

Better to have it and not need it than it is to need it and not have it!

I too have always been amazed at the ridiculous prices of these "dawg" burner caps and wondered who was buying them. I have a ton of stoves (about 6 too many) and some are pretty loud (msr dragonfly and optimus nova). BUT, they are not loud enough to motivate me to throw down $150 of hard earned :wink:

To each their own.

I would love to buy one just to carry around to give to the jerk offs that fire up their F16 fighter plane inches from my head at 2AM in the yosemite backpackers camp!
