Halulite Ketalist Cookset

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This is a great set for what it is, but needs a pan that nests under the kettle and then it would be perfect. This kettle can boil a quart of water in 2>3 min on an MSR PocketRocket. The small fuel can nests inside the kettle inside the bowls. If it were a little bigger (enough to fit a larger fuel can) and had a nesting fry pan this would be some of the best improvements GSI could make. That being said, for the money, the weight and options this kit can and is being used for on my adventures… Full review

Tea Kettle HAE

rated 5 of 5 stars Great pot, but you can cook in it too. Read in another review that you can cook in it and wanted to be sure before I took it on the trail for that purpose. Because it has a very wide lid you can actually cook in this pot. I made one of my favorite meals, Fettuccini with Salmon. I used the Lipton Knorr Pasta Sides Alfredo and a foil packet of Smoked Salmon purchased from the grocery store. The recipe calls for 2 cups of water and the total contents just fit into the pot. I cooked it over a Trangia… Full review

Halulite Ketalist Cookset

rated 4 of 5 stars Bulletproof, might be a word that one would think of when using one of these, and if not for a couple of minor details great would be another. So if you really like the form factor and can get past the bulk you will most likely love this kettle and maybe even the bowl and cup. I know I do. Gotta say I love my kettle and enjoy a spot of tea in the insulated cup, and the size of the kettle makes it so I can enjoy my tea and hydrate my meal with a single boil of water. If I'm using the bowl for a breakfast… Full review

Personal Java Press

rated 5 of 5 stars Perfect for two. Nice little unit to bring to the backcountry, we always take this along. My boyfriend will only drink a "real" cup of coffee, which this press does beautifully and I'm an exclusive tea drinker. So he makes and drinks his coffee from the press and I use the cup for my tea and everyone is happy in the mornings. Everything packs neatly into the press with room to stash your tea and extras inside. We've had this for about two years now with no problems, and it has seen a lot of use! Full review

Compact Scraper

rated 5 of 5 stars The backcountry tool you never knew you needed. Scrape clean bowls and pots before washing. Worth 10 times its weight in recovered calories alone. I stumbled across this little beauty while browsing my way through the cookware section of a big Norwegian outdoor sports retailer. I didn't think twice. The utility of it was obvious, especially for our 8 member JMT group where hygiene is especially important. Now I wouldn't leave it behind on a solo or even hut-to-hut trek. It's a win-win-win tool —… Full review
