Design brilliant, not sure about durability yet
on December 10, 2010
Someone(s) spent a whole lot of time geeking out over how to design a really light, really compact mess kit for two. Everything packs down into the pot
Pot size is perfect - you can make coffee for four at once. Handle on pot is really sturdy, love the folding design.
Only real complaint is that the pot warped slightly during its first weekend of use. It was only used with propane stove (not fire/grill) and yet the pot is now just slightly oval instead of perfectly round. Which means the lid no longer sits flush on it.
One minor design suggestion - two of the bowls come with a thin insulated layer on the outside. (This great feature helps if you're serving something hot in it.) But it would've been nicer if it was just a little thicker, and if it was removable (it kind of obnoxiously absorbs water when you wash it.) Would be easier to be able to remove it, wash the bowl, put it back on.
This is an excellent mess kit for two, especially for those trips where weight and size of your gear is important. You can't get much lighter or more compact than this.
