MSR Quick 2 system

from REI - "Cookset includes a 1.5-liter nonstick DuraLite DX pot, a 2.5-liter hard-anodized pot with strainer lid, 2 polypropylene DeepDish plates, 2 insulated mugs and a pot handle"


GSI pinnacle backpacker

also from REI - "includes 2 bowls, 2 insulated mugs, 2 Sip-It lids, a 2-liter pot with lid, a frypan, a pot gripper and a stuff sack"


Im planning on retiring our old kovea cookset and replace it with these sets that have an integrated mess kit and insulated mugs (we like to keep it hot for more than a minute!).

Anyone out there with experience regarding these 2 cooksets?

I got to play a lot with the MSR (but never use it) and I think they are great, very sound set but there is one thing - the way MSR did the handle on this one, if you cook with both pots at the same time I'm not so sure how easy it is to switch/clip the handle from one pot to the other when the pots are hot...maybe it's ok as you have weight in it.
