Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars
Price Paid: 50$ CAN

NOTE: The non-stick coating is on BOTH pots for this kit, contrary to the web description.

Lightweight, insulated handle (read: no more frozen fingers!), non-stick coating, tight-fitting lid, compact, and the perfect sizes: 2.5L for snowmelting, 1.5L for summer.

But the smartest thing is the handle that locks on the lid to hold it closed: no more fiddling with rubber bands to keep everything inside when you're on the move. The price tag is reasonable, and it even comes with a tiny packtowel!

Overall a very sweet piece of gear! I don't know of any other cookset that meets all the criteria stated above.

I haven't had a chance to test the durability yet, but being an MSR product I'm not worried. Just remember to sand the bottom of the pots if you don't want your meal to slide off the stove.
