I found the GSI model to be superior in a few important respects. First, the opening in the top is large enough for me to fit my ESBIT Pot Stand and Folding Stove into. Second, the spout doesn't leak, which the Optimus and its clone the Primus Litech both do. The Esbit one was unable to fit my collapsible spoon from the Jetboil Utensil Kit either.
The width of the base is wide enough to catch a lot of heat from the stove, but the rise is also nice, because I can fit my whole cook kit inside, which includes my mini pop can stove and a bottle of alcohol fuel.
The capacity of this is just under a liter. By comparison, the Esbit one is 600 ml and the Optimus one is 700 ml. I would put this one at 800 or 900 ml. That extra capacity doesn't hurt any. It's nearly as small to pack, but big enough to pack what you need to inside of it, and you can have plenty of water for two servings of food. You can still prepare a bit less water if you prefer.
I upgraded the wire handle (see pic in the gallery). I am allergic to the plasti-dip stuff that came on the original, and so I took the advice of another user and bent up a coat hanger wire to replace it. I then used my Dremel with a buff wheel to take off the sharp edges on the wire and on the protrusions on the top of the kettle which hold the wire upright. I don't want it wearing through my reflective meal cozy bag, which I also use as the stuff sack for the cook kit.
The lid can be fixed to stay on with friction by bowing out the inner rim into a slight oval with your thumbs. The Esbit lid fits quite loosely around the outside of the kettle opening, and doesn't seem able to be fixed to stay on. The Optimus lid fits on the inside and might be able to be bent to fit snugly as well, but it doesn't come as a snug fit.
The workmanship on this item seems far superior to the Optimus. The Esbit is gorgeous quality, but the specific design and sizing didn't work out for me.
Stove: This pot will not boil fast with a small flame pattern. It takes 8-9 minutes 2 cups with typical narrow alcohol stove. With my propane bottle single burner I can do it in just over 2 minutes. With a larger flame pattern it beats my HX pot. That's how lightweight cooking works, you have to match the stove with the pot
Purpose: This pot is ideal for backpacking or hiking, lightweight buils enough water for freeze dryed/dehydrated meals or drinks.
Excellent product: I have had it for ~4 years, it has held up great backpacking, car camping.
You can fit one of the smaller, mixed gas cylinders inside it.
You can get one with a complete mess kit that fits inside, but this is the one that is just the kettle with nothing else.
You do want to be careful with the handles. Cook with the handles straight up so they can't come in contact with flame/intense heat of a stove. On the highest setting with some stoves, the flames will lick up around the edges, but that is true of almost any lightweight, backpacking cookware. I also wouldn't ever use it with a campfire - the little spout is always open to ash etc. and the heat-resistant handles would melt. But it works great with a Pocket Rocket stove. It works so well you have to watch it carefully. That stove and this pot boil water really, really fast, even in colder weather. I think it is because the wider surface area at the bottom more effectively catches all the stove's heat than a narrower pot.
The handle supports needed to be bent inwards a small amount so the handle would "latch" in the up position securely.
I also warped the lid some so it will stay in place during pouring.
# 1 The handle is wire and has fairly sharp ends so you need to keep that in mind when packing it. They can scratch or poke holes in objects that rub up against the sharp parts.
#2 The silicone on the handle isn't able to take much heat and melts too easily. The shape of the handle makes it great for hanging over a campfire but unless you're extra careful the coating will melt.
#3 The kettle is just a little on the small size. If you put a whole quart of water in it the level is to the top of the spout and will boil over. (The size issue is my personal opinion, others may think it's the perfect size)
If you're looking for a small, lightweight kettle thats much cheaper than titanium this is a great choice.
