Brilliant value for money
on September 6, 2011
I was very impressed here with what you get for under eight dollars. It's very thin and it's very light, and you know what? Some would consider that an advantage when you're hiking, and have to carry all your gear. It feels nowhere as cheap as others complained about, but that's the thing with Chinese quality- it's hit or miss. Mine feels great except for the pot, which itself is solid and so is the lid, but if you're rough on the handle I can see it breaking. But let's be honest, some people could break anything. If you don't have the ability to take a piece of heavy gauge wire and replace that handle, then don't buy cheap Chinese stuff in the first place. The other problem is that when packed together, it RATTLES. Like, BADLY. Except anyone with any degree of ingenuity can make two small bends to the handle and it screws together right as a drum, no rattles whatsoever.
This is a fairly cheap quality kit, but it's VERY cheap to buy. I think you're actually getting slightly more than you pay for, and it's well deserving of five stars.
