The Soloist is a thoughtfully engineered cookset that can host a gas canister together with a select brand or two of stove heads. The cookset includes a pot w/insulated handles, compressible spork, mug w/cozy cover, plastic, vented lid that doubles as a sip cup cover for the mug, and a stuff sack that doubles as a small water bucket or wash up basin.

I use this cookset with a 110gm gas canister and an Optimus Crux, which folds and stores underneath the canister (the stove comes with a little pouch designed to strap under a gas canister). The canister is then placed into the bottom of the Soloist pot with the valve facing up. Next, a spork and lighter and possibly packets of coffee or tea are placed around the top of the canister. The mug is then turned upside down and put into the pot. The lid is held in place by the pot's insulating handle, which flips over to lock the top - all very convenient!

And if you forget how this order works, GSI has a printed series of small icons on the outside of the pot - good for those of us who are spatially challenged.

A tip: First gently squeeze the handle together to flip its position when removing or locking the lid.

And although not readily apparent, the mug, which has an insulating neoprene wrap, also doubles as a measuring cup with markings inside in milliliters and ounces!

You'll enjoy using this cookset, which only weighs 10 oz. (minus gas canister and stove, of course).

This is a great little cookset. I recommend using it with the Brunton Raptor, as the entire stove and a 4oz canister pack right inside the Soloist.

The only thing I didn't like about the set was the plastic 'spork'. Its handle slides down, making the whole thing shorter, but its actually hard to do without pinching your fingers or poking yourself - and overall, its not a very good spoon or fork. I recommend tossing it and getting something metal.

One piece of advice, be sure to *pinch* the handle together when folding it open or closed - my wife almost broke ours within 5 minutes of owning it, trying to pry it open. The design locks the handle in place over the lid, which keeps it from coming open when packed.

I own two of these. You can nest an MSR pocket rocket and fuel canister in this kit with a bandana (pot holder), matches (for lighting), a mini salt/pepper shaker and a strip of scrub pad. It cleans up very easily--much easier than stainless steel cups and mess kits.

This is my camp-stove mess kit of choice. It's not exactly "minimalist", but it's very light and compact with a nice bowl cup (can be left out if hiking/camping alone or with those equally equipped). It also has a little telescopic spork that I carry but don't use as much as my other spork. You could certainly use the pot over a fire but would have to keep the lid off and I'm sure it would wreck the finish... Ideal for Mountain House/Wise type meals or even Ramen noodles/Easy Mac but you could make stew in it too if you needed to.

I recommend this for anyone who wants to go light but not go without.

I think that the size of this set is perfectfor me. Heats water quick, especially with a wind screen; but I can also cook in the pot. I agree that the included foon is flimsy, but I keep it in the pack as a spare. All told, I'm very pleased.

This is the best stove/cookset storage solution I have found so far. The quality is excellent. The non stick coating works very well but I dont have enough use on this stove to determine if it will degrade like most nonstick coating do. The best feature of this cookset is the locking handle design which allows me to securely close my cookset without using the extra stuffsack/cover.
I took out the cup and spoon because I prefer to use a folding titanium spoon and a squishy bowl. I can fit inside my stove a large size butane/isobutane fuel cannister, Snowpeak gigapower stove, homemade windscreen, bandanna, and small dropper bottle with soap.

If you're in the market for a backpacking cook set, look no further. If you're looking for something you can stick in your bug out bag, this is the thing for you. And, if you're just browsing your product suggestions, well this is a great impulse buy.

For starters, this thing is in a premium box which was partly why I picked it over some of the other things on the shelf. I know, I know... Don't judge a product by its box... But, this was actually a good product in a good box.

The soloist has a wonderful compact sort of storage arrangement where the items fit into the pot and a stow away and washing bag. If you have a small stove you can fit it inside of the entire set up with a small canister, but I use an MSR Pocket Rocket, so I put that in its container and shove that in the pot and carry the fuel separately.

The materials you get with this kit are outstanding, the pot has a lid to secure everything, and that's clamped down by the handle. it's also nice to have the little layer of silicon on the handle to keep it cool to the touch, though if you're using a flame I'd suggest keeping an eye on that bit. You may notice a little play in the handle, it's nothing major, but it's still there. I don't mind, because it doesn't have any effect on the performance of the kit.

The mug and the neoprene cover are fantastic, and it doubles as a bowl and includes some hidden little hash marks for measuring the contents. The little spork is pretty neat, but I'm afraid it'll break. I'll keep using it, but I'll keep a backup with me too. It fits nicely in the little pouch that's included, and I keep a lighter there as well so I can light the stove without fuss.

My only complaint is the lid.
