AWESOME product! Everything fits tightly and in order.


  • Very convenient
  • Packs in several options for more or less people
  • Durable


  • Like most the pots are non-stick

We have been using the Flex 4 kit for 3 years now. The kit itself has everything besides utensils. What we like about it is we can pack for 1, 2, 3, or 4 people depending on our needs, which saves on weight. The space not used when we pack light fits spices or anything else small.

The cups function as bowls. The pot lids have drain holes on both of them. If you just want to take the smaller pot out you can do so along with up to 4 cups and lids, 2 plates, and the lid which locks down with the pots foldable handle. The big pot has two strong latches on it to hold its lid on.
