Texsport Aluminum 9 Cup Percolator

Shh. Not so loud, I am not awake yet. (the scent of Folgers coffee and sounds of percolating) Good morning, Trailspace readers... The best part of waking up always is coffee, or for some, the only thing that gets them up. The Texsport 9 cup percolator is a very well built lightweight camping coffee maker, but more importantly, it makes one damn good cup of Joe. Now you know, and knowing is half the battle, oh, glorious satisfaction! (GI Joe reference) This is a great lightweight percolator at a… Full review

Snow Peak Kettle No.1

One of the best stainless small bushcrafting/backpacking pots on the market, with a very reasonable price of $20 USD, this Made in Japan kettle is one of the few backpacking pots that will fit an unbroken block of premium ramen noodles (the $2/packet kind, like Nissin Raoh or Maruchan Gold). It has a few shortcomings that I hope Snow Peak will one day address with an updated model. There's always that moment of trepidation when a package arrives and you are praying nothing is damaged. Although I… Full review

MSR Titan Kettle

The MSR Titan tea kettle had been on my wish list for a couple years. I finally broke down and made the purchase. I have not been disappointed. The ti kettle is the most versatile piece of gear in my backcountry cook system. It's light enough at 4 ounces to pack, just for boiling water. With a fluid capacity of 28 ounces, it boils enough water for myself and one other person. For some people boiling water is enough, for myself I love the option to bake and cook while outdoors.   Fresh hot muffin… Full review

GSI Outdoors Halulite Tea Kettle

I have had this kettle for five years. For its size, it is the lightest and most durable piece of cookware I have. I have consolidated my cookware many times over the years but this always makes the cut. I use it, a stove, camp mug, and a pour-over reusable coffee filter. That's it. The halulite kettle transfers heat incredibly well and allows for a quick boil. It is very durable and surprisingly lightweight. The kettle spout is ideal for pouring into dehydrated meals or pouring over coffee. It… Full review

GSI Outdoors Halulite Ketalist Cookset

Excellent product. I use this cookset year round. This product is vary resilient and stands up to heavy use. My only complaint is the spork. They are easily broken and I now use a titanium spork. Full review

MSR Big Titan Kettle

Nice big pot...but flawed. When I spend $80 on a pot I expect it to do everything perfect. I will say that I am a fan of MSR and have their stainless steel pots and really like them. But the Big Titan Kettle had one BIG flaw in my opinion. First, why did I buy the Big Titan? I wanted a water boiler...that's it. I wanted to be able to boil large amounts of water, which it of course does. It is the quality you'd expect from MSR except that it drips so much when you pour. If you really concentrate,… Full review

Stansport Aluminum Percolator Coffee Pot 9-Cup

What a campfire coffee pot should be: Usable over a fire. Also works great on a stove, even at home. Ideal for those who like plain old perked coffee. I have owned this coffee pot for several months, and used it several dozen times. It has held up fine, though it might not last forever.  It works perfectly, over a fire, or on the stove at home. It perks. You can see it's perking; it doesn't boil over. The main bail handle is very nice. It is nice to have one (and so many pots don't anymore), as… Full review

Open Country Aluminum Covered Kettle - 2 Quart

Can't imagine a better cook pot for the price. I have used this pot on pretty much all my backpacking trips (several per year) for about five years, almost always over an open fire or twig stove. It is made of very light aluminum, and has held up very well. The exterior is permanently black, and it came to me slightly mashed so the lid requires some pressure to be seated perfectly and a sort of flick (I use a fork in the ring) to get up when it is. I love this pot: It is very lightweight It is quick… Full review
