Heavy, but bulletproof

I've had this set for over twenty years. The outside of both pots are absolutely coated with carbon that will never, ever come out, and I like that - call it a patina.

One of the best features is the lid: Not only does it fit both pots, but it can be turned upside down to act as a double-boiler - great for reheating without getting a big pot dirty. I often use it to warm up a Clif bar in cold weather while boiling water for oatmeal or coffee.

I usually only take the large pot and the lid with me. My MSR Rapidfire, inclusive of the windscreen and pot grabber, fit nicely inside the pot.
