- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I put a lot of thought into my cookset when shopping, and decided on this one. I camp with buddies a lot, and they never bring their own cookware. The duelist seemed like a good idea.
Light, small, does the job, has an amazing stack design, eat'n tool fits.
Cons: Only fits smaller fuel canisters, requires some grinder action to fit the pocket rocket, sporks require replacement immediately, not the best for cooking messy food.
When by myself, I leave a bowl set out and it makes everything easier to pack. If you're legitimately backpacking for two, get the slightly larger duelist. The larger size is compensated with fitting more better. If you're always going by yourself, get the soloist. The microduelist set seems to be a weird in-between.
Perfect cookset for 2
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This cookset was very well thought out. Packs together perfectly nothing is sticking out awkwardly or falling out of place. One of the bowls has graduated marks so I can't accidentally turn my turkey tetrazini into soup. Handle is plenty long enough so there is no risk of burning your hand. More important to some it's light. I could go on and on, I love this cookset!
A high alpine setup!
This pot goes everywhere!
This kit is of good quality, light and cheap! You can fit an MSR Pocket Rocket in it and some cleaning stuff.
Just what I needed!
This cookset is perfect for two people. You can even use it for just one if you would like by just removing one set. Its lightweight and I love how everything fits inside (including my stove and fuel).
Phenomenal product, some downfalls...
I'll come right out and say it, this is likely the BEST kit out there. My girlfriend and I picked it up on a whim; it was on sale for ~ $35 and we couldn't pass it up. First of all, this is the perfect size for 2 backpackers. I love that each set is color coded (that way I can't get blamed if her stuff goes missing). This is a clearly well thought out product. On top of that, this thing is a tank! We are going on three years with this set and it looks like the day we bought it (with the exception of some browning in the handle hinge from heat exposure). I'm pretty sure this thing is impossible to dent. I have even used it during military field exercises. It works well with our MSR Pocket Rocket. My biggest joy in this kit is it's versatility. If I'm going light and fast on a solo trip, it is still small enough to take along. I just pull out one of the kits inside and use the rest of the space for storage. It really is a one size fits all kit. We have sold all of our other backpacking cookware.
On the negative side... the lid with the pouring holes is a great idea, I just wish it held on a little more snuggly. I have had it blow off in the wind. Luckily, the handle folds over the top to retain the entire kit when stowed away. The big concern I have for this system is that water seems to boil a little slower in this pot than in others (MSR Alpine Stowaway). Not much, but it's noticeable. All in all, this is a great product and is no-doubt, the best kit on the market.
Very light and compact. The pot is really nice for boiling water for meals. Overall amazing quality!
Perfect For One Person With An Appetite
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
When I'm hiking, I eat like a race horse, and often require multiple bowls. Not only that, but packing down multiple bowls often means that youre taking up more space in your pack.
This set is just great, bowls fit in the pot, plus you can get creative and fit a few more goodies in the bowl inside the pot, like a small cylinder stove, powdered milk, or whatever else you choose.
The only problem that I found was that the sporks that are included are extremely flimsy, one of them broke on my first night out. Lesson learned though - dont try and stab your food, especially if its a dehydrated meal.
I'd definitely use this again, quite frankly, I enjoyed nothing more than a coffee in one of the bowls with the lid on, watching the sun drop.
Does this set have a non stick surface? ...
Does this set have a non stick surface? Backcountry says yes but REI says no.
I've got this set and I'm going to vote no on the surface being non stick.
I've also looked at the tech specs right on GSI's website and am not able to find any mention of a non-stick surface. Chances are good we've got the wrong tech spec up on that detail.

Yeah I was looking at GSI and I couldn't find anything mentioning the inside surface. How easy is it to clean?
I'd say this set is pretty easy to clean. Depending on how long I'm heading out for depends on if I clean it in the field or if I clean it once I get home. So the times when I clean it at home the stuff has had some time to set up. Even then it's seemed pretty easy to clean.
No complaints here
My main thing is a complaint about the sports and how the handle slides together. Poorly designed.

Can you use the titanium/metal spoons in...
Can you use the titanium/metal spoons in this, or only plastic?
The inside is just hard ano'd aluminum, so it's pretty safe to use metal utensils.
Yeah I did and didnt have a problem.
Is there an itemized list of each component's...
Is there an itemized list of each component's weight? Having the ability to feed two is nice but I often travel alone and would need to "break it down" into a light soloist rig.
Sorry - we don't have a break down of each component's weight, but if you take a look at our soloist set you'll get a sense of the weight for less items.
