I just ordered two for a buddy and I, I'll report back on how they perform. They also have them in carbon fiber, pretty cool.

I like the built in fluid level viewing window. Most put a dumb clear hose on the outside of the can.

Thats because the ones who do hold about a quart. And if it gets filled,you have bigger problems than a catch can.

Right, my point is that the viewing window in this can's design is much cleaner than a dumb external clear hose.

Already bought one and it is beautiful in appearance, but is just an empty fluid container with no real baffeling to separate the oil.....it will catch oil, but no better than a empty can of any kind with 2 fittings in.

It is better than nothing for sure though.

I haven't handled one in person but just based on its appearance and how it is laid out I would have to agree.

Here is some general "Catch Can" info.

It can be modified to function better I'm sure; for example a perforated divider between the in/out nozzles.
