Open Country Mors Bush Pot 1.8L
I purchased the 8-cup Mors pot from Ben's Bushcraft.
Price Paid: $26
I purchased the 8-cup Mors pot from Ben's Bushcraft. It however is also sold at Four Dog Stoves. I believe this is made by Open Country, but this is unconfirmed, and Open Country does not sell it directly.
The pot is made of hard anodized aluminum, and has a 3(5) position bail handle, and butterfly handles, and a pour spout. The pot comes with an aluminum lid which has a d-ring with a notch to allow for easy lifting with a stick etc. The bottom of the pot is stamped MADE IN USA.
The overall workmanship of the pot seems very good, and it seems solidly built. The pot weighs 11.5oz, has a 8 cup capacity, and measures 5 3/4in diameter, 6in height at the center of the lid.
I took the Mors pot out with me on a 7-day backpacking trip and really gave it a good workout. I used it on a stove, directly in a fire, hung over a fire, to dip water out of streams, to carry water long distances back to camp, to cook meals in, and to steam bake in.
Overall I was very satisfied with this pot and will be making it a normal part of my gear. The size of the pot is ample for two people.
The HAA coating makes cleanup fairly easy as it is semi-nonstick and I never had any difficulty cleaning the pot. The lid stays on fairly snugly as well. The bail handle made carrying a full pot of water back to camp easy, even for several long rocky uphill treks.
This pot met and exceeded all of my expectations. It was a little awkward using it as a mug due to its size, but it still worked well regardless.
