User Review: Snow Peak Titanium Mini Solo
Price Paid: $36
Excellent set for solo adventuring. The pot has enough room to store a SnowPeak brand fuel cannister plus my Brunton Talon stove. As with all Ti, the walls are thin and it can be bent easily, so care is necessary when packing it in your pack. The 27oz water capacity of the pot is great for boiling enough water for a meal for one person plus a couple cups of coffee. The small triangle for lifting the lid requires that you make sure to put it up before you boil, as it will burn you to try and lift it after the water comes to a boil (or use the pliers of your multi tool).
I did not find that the handles on the pot conduct heat, although someone with small hands may have a problem with coming into contact with the side of the pot when lifting from stove. The pot allows water to come to a boil pretty quick.
The coffee cup is one of my favorite parts of this set. The cup is a bit small for me (I like a lot of coffee), but the way it hugs the bottom of the pot is great. The handles are once again small for big handed folks. The Ti does not conduct heat well, so the rim of the cup stays cool enough to drink from.
I got this set on clearance, so it will likely cost you more. Snow Peak makes an aluminum version of this set, but I find aluminum conducts heat too well. That's okay for the pot, not good for the coffee cup.
In short, this set is a great set for one person, or it will boil enough water for two people on a summer trip (when hot drinks are not wanted).
