Great set for travel and backpacking.
I got the set on sale for $50 after an additional discount on a clearance priced item. In short, I love them.
I have read a few reviews where people complain about hotspots or the non-stick coating. Titanium is not cast iron, stainless steel or aluminum (anodized or not). Concentrated high temps simply will not work well with coated thin titanium. If one lowers the heat and cooks accordingly they perform extremely well.
I use mine exclusively with a homemade pop can alcohol stove, Trangia stand/windscreen and hard plastic utensils. This setup avoids scratching the non-stick material, disperses the flame perfectly, cooks at a lower temperature than butane, white gas or auto gas stoves thus reducing hotspots and eliminating heat degradation of the non-stick material.
I have cooked soups, eggs, stir fries and boil only meals on this set and it has performed wonderfully.
No complaints whatsoever.

Overall this is a fine set of pots and pans. I usually just take 1 of the 2 on the trail with me. Rarely do I need 2 large pots at the same time.
I've been using them for the last 2.5 years and they've held up well. The nonstick coating in still intact, which is impressive since I'm pretty tough on them. There are a couple small dings here and there but nothing substantial.
They are large enough that you'd want to pack other items inside them to save space.
Here's what other sites are saying:
Lighten your load and keep kitchen cleanup to a minimum with the REI Ti Ware(TM) nonstick titanium cookset. Lighter than steel and stronger than aluminum, corrosion-resistant, chemically non-reactive titanium conducts heat efficiently. Extra-thick silicon ceramic coating is superior, passing tests for heat, corrosion, frying and scratch-resistant hardness. Rounded bottom edges offer lots of surface area to the flame and are easy to clean. All pots and lids have folding wire handles that allow the pots to nest; insulative coating on handles improves grip and prevents burns. Lids double as fry pans. Nylon storage sack with drawstring included.
