Unless you're going ultralight--cooking and eating out of a mug--you're going to want to make the Cascade Designs Alpinist 2 Pot an integral part of your backcountry trekking gear. This versatile 2. 4-liter pot is crafted from hard anodized aluminum, which is strong, light, and disperses heat more efficiently than titanium; a non-stick interior surfaces means you're spending less time cleaning and more time enjoying the campfire. The pot's lightweight lid doubles as a strainer, and it can be locked into place when you're under way with the removable Talon pot handle, which flips down when it's time to get busy over the stove.
