Basically, it's just a flip top spout for a bottle of alcohol, but it has a very nice little enhancement: a nice, long plastic tube is well seated in the spout. The tube can be pulled out, but it doesn't come out on it's own and is air tight.

- Fueling. Got an alcohol stove with a tiny, little fuel opening? No sweat. Insert that little straw straight into the fuel port. See photo below.
- Measuring out alcohol. When I dispense alcohol into my little medicine measuring cup, this straw allows me to squeeze it in really smoothly without a lot of turbulence. It's easy to see exactly where the meniscus lies against the measurements on the cups. I also have very precise control.
- Oops! Did I squeeze out too much alcohol? No problem. Squeeze the bottle a little bit, dip the straw into the alcohol, and use the straw to suck up the excess alcohol. Sweet.
- Priming. That straw is great for getting alcohol into hard to reach old stoves that you'd like to prime with alcohol.

The PackaFeather cap. It just makes life easier.
