And the mice are going to chew holes in either model. I got rid of my 
camp towel knock-off and now use one-quarter of a bandana with a small 
alligator clip stitched to one end. Other uses for the other quarters: 
handkerchief (as in tissue substitute), pot grabber/general kitchen 

I also use a mylar wine box liner in place of a water bag. It carries 
easily in an open mesh bag (like the kind you buy onions in).
