Tim, I have the Shasta, and it has two "water bottle" pockets that I use
to carry fuel. As you may notice they're kind of small and tight and it
seems like the bottle might just pop out. I use the cord from the
sleeping bag compartment zipper and loop it around the top of the fuel
bottle. I've never had it slip out. I don't like the idea of putting the
fuel inside. It makes me nervous. ;)
