Snow Peak Titanium Trek 900

Most solo hikers have a 750 ml pot. I wanted a larger pot with volume. This pot fit the bill. It's titanium and light also.   I hike solo, but I also take trips with others. I wanted a pot I could use for both solo and groups. This pot fell into that category...plus I eat more food than most and like a hot beverage with my meal or right after. The downfall of this pot is the heat transfer. It boils water fast due to titanium and it's light and a strong metal. It has hard problems with real food. Full review

Pathfinder Large Bushpot

A sturdy large pot with a bail handle for boiling larger amounts of water or for small groups. Also good for cooking pasta/rice and stews. Dave Canterbury is a legend in Bushcraft/survival. His equipment is based on extensive trials and use in the field. It is well though out, high quality, and reasonably priced, especially if looked after well as it should last a lifetime. Dave experienced a life-changing house fire not so long ago, so we could all help a giant among outdoors people to get back… Full review

Pathfinder Folding Skillet and Lid

Excellent for back country cooking around camp. Its thicker solid bottom distributes heat evenly, the lid retains heat and prevents splashing, and the foldaway handle is easy to use and sturdy. You have to feel for bushcraft legend Dave Canterbury—he lost everything in a house fire earlier in the year. Not only is he a genuine and humble person, he has made a massive contribution to how we live, work, and thrive in the outdoors. This skillet is a great addition to any camp cook setup and while… Full review

GSI Outdoors Pinnacle Dualist HS

This stove is unsafe on any canister stove. This stove is unsafe on any canister stove. The heat sink feature only allows the pot to be off center a half inch, before the user gets a lap of scalding contents. Full review

Sea to Summit Sigma Stainless Steel Pot

Handle pivot lock clip issue. Lock on both pots in 2.2 set disconnected. I had the same issue with this pot. The lock on the pivot just disconnected and got lost in the grassy ground.  It happened to both pots during the same camping trip. Now it's a real safety issue as you can easily meet an accident due to the pot swinging out easily. I'm requesting a Warranty claim or just sending a replacement lock. Full review

Sea to Summit Sigma Stainless Steel Pot

Similar to a previous comment...best feature is the worst by far. UPDATE OCTOBER 2020: 3 Stars for Pot but 5 Stars for Sea to Summit. Sea to Summit has been spectacular in dealing with the issue I experienced. They were extremely concerned and have taken the pot to their testing lab for further study. This was the larger pot (3.7L) and the first generation. It may not be an issue with the newer version. I really like this pot but the larger size, in gen 1 seems to have had issues. I suspect the… Full review

GSI Outdoors Escape HS 3L Pot + Frypan

GSI paired a 3L collapsible nylon pot with a 9-inch frying pan to create a compact combo for folks who like to do some actual cooking in the outdoors. Hard anodized aluminum pot base and fry pan with a durable Teflon non-stick coating, plus the pot has a built in heatsink that really gets things boiling faster. Great for front country use. Those willing to carry a little weight will enjoy the benefits in the back country too, especially families or groups cooking together. The GSI Outdoors Escape… Full review

GSI Outdoors Halulite Minimalist Cookset

Very light and compact. This is probably my most frequently used bit of camping gear. I have made up a 'kit' using this, inside it I fit a 100g gas canister, a Soto Amicus stove, the pot gripper supplied, and a windproof lighter. An Optimus clip-on windshield fits snugly on the outside held on with an elastic band and then clips on to the gas canister when in use. What I end up with is a very light and compact setup that comes with me on most day trips and is compact enough to fit in a small daypack… Full review

GSI Outdoors Pinnacle Dualist HS

A compact two-person cook set that stows neatly in its own pot, the Pinnacle Dualist HS offers a few perks similar sets lack, such as a PFOA-free Teflon-coated pot with heat exchanger and "Foons," GSI's folding sporks. The heat exchanger pot contributes to faster boil times and lower fuel consumption, and the inclusion of mugs, bowls, and utensils makes this a good option for a backpacking duo who wish to share a cook set that is efficient, compact, and durable. In the Box The Pinnacle Dualist HS… Full review
