User Review: Primus Litech Trek Kettle
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $25
This amazing little stove pot is compact enough for the average backpacker and gives versatility to the beginners out there. Amazing for its value.
- Perfect pack size
- Lid doubles as mini frying pan
- Can easily store a solo stove or small propane burner inside
- Pour spout for easy pouring
- Rubberized handles on sides and lid/pan
- No measuring numbers inside
- Stuff sack is half mesh, half nylon
The Primus Litech cook pot is the perfect addition to a backpacker's gear arsenal. Its compact size allows for easy storage, but it is large enough to be able to store a stove inside along with a small bottle of fuel with an alcohol burner or small bits of wood for a wood burner.
Some of the only flaws I have found is that there are no measuring numbers or marks on the inside of the pot, which is nice to have for measuring out water for a Mountain House meal or other dehydrated pack meals. The other flaw is the stuff sack which is easily replaced, but it is due to the fact that it is half nylon, and half mesh, which could lead to messes inside your pack from any soot buildup on the bottom and sides of the pot from cooking.
Other than these small flaws, the Litech pot is amazing and definitely beats out some other pots especially with its all metal lid which won't melt with too much heat, unlike a plastic lid.
