Boil a better backcountry cup.

Made of Halulite, a hard anodized alloy as light as titanium, the GSI Tea Kettle HAE conducts heat better than your dented WWII era tea kettle so you can use less fuel to boil water. Sure, Grandpa's kettle did the job over the years, but you deserve a 20th century battle ready tea kettle that withstands dents, scratching and abrasions like no other tea pot out there. Grip the heat resistant handles and pour a peaceful sunrise cup then throw the kettle against a rock just to check how hard this puppy is.

Works fine

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

My only mistake was not realizing how small this kettle really is. Two ups of coffee at best. And those are medium sized cups of coffee.

The good news, it's super light, and heats up quickly.


Needs a stuff sack

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

I missed in the description that this didn't come with a stuff sack like similar kettles at this price point. That was a let down because the lid doesn't stay on when it jostle around in my food bag. <br ></article><br />It's a nice enough kettle however, well made and a nice size. The rubber on the handle will melt as other have mentioned.


GSI Outdoors Halulite Tea

  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Nice little kettle. Serves its purpose. Only issue was the rubberized coating on handle can overheat and melt.


GSI kettle

  • Gender:Male
  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

This little kettle is everything you could want from a backpacking kettle. If you pack it right it will cost you no space in your pack. The opening is large enough to fit the MSR pocket rocket stove, protective case and all. It really does bring water to a rapid boil and therefor really saves you on fuel.


Everybody needs this!

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

The halulite GSI Kettle has become an integral part of my camp kitchen. It is super-light, rugged, and packs away nicely while out on the trail. When packed, it stores several smaller items (stove/condiments/utensils/sponge/handkerchief/coffee/kettle's handle) and sits perfectly atop a nested Sea to Summit Xmug and Xbowl. I'm considering buying a second one just in case GSI decides to stop manufacturing these in the next few years. Tip: Pick yourself up a cork from one of the big box hardware stores for the spout, or trim down a wine cork to fit. This reduced my boil times by over a minute. Oh, and just remove the rubber coating before use. If the handle gets hot enough to burn your fingers, it would have been hot enough to make a mess of the rubber.


Ultra light

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

This is great for backpacking! if you are only boiling water for one this kettle is very ideal! It is crazy light, and not too large if you have a smaller stove you could most likely fit it inside the kettle itself. This also has some good use if you want to just make a quick coffee in morning. I would defiantly recomend


Excellent light kettle.

  • Gender:Male
  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

I love this little thing, it's light, packs easy, has enough room for some tea bags and coco mixes when traveling. Heats water fast, I've mostly used some coals from the campfire. I bought this to add to my GSI Pinnacle Soloist to expand my cookset and have more room for boiling water to make it safe, as well as making hot drinks while backpacking/camping. Performs well. I have yet to melt the plastic on the handle, but it has been one of my concerns. All in all, great little kettle, and hope the handles continue to hold out.


Bargain for the price!

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

I wasn't expecting much at this price, because usually you get what you pay for. Given that this is a inexpensive pot, I was expecting the equivalent in quality. I've couldn't have been more wrong. It is super light, the spout is incredible, and the handle is a must! We don't usually make tea in this, just boil water for mountain house. It is small, but somehow handles a full liter. The lid helps to boil water really fast. Overall, I couldn't be happier.


Perfect for tea lovers

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I know I can make tea in a pot but hey, I love tea and I wanted to show that love so I bought this cute little cattle. It is extremely lightweight, and the water boil instantly. 1 problem I encountered is that once I used it with a primus stove and the wind shield on max power the orange plastic of the handle melted and it's a shame - And nonetheless it gets 5 stars cause I just love tea


Cool little kettle

    Perfect for making a couple cups of coffee,tea, broth, oatmeal... you name it.

    Spout pours nice and clean. I wouldn't put anything but water in it as it'd be hard for me to fit my hand in to clean it. Not everyone would have a problem with that.

    I was wondering if this kettle will fit...

    I was wondering if this kettle will fit in the Trangia-25 cook set?

    I just received my GSI Kettle today. To my question, Yes, it fits well in a Trangia - 25 but not in the Trangia - 27 though. It's to big.


    Sweet kettle

      Sweet kettle. Wide base provides for faster boil times and great stability. I stash the handle and the rest of a kit for two, not including canister, in the kettle. Cork in the spout reduces slop, improves capacity and keeps sharp edge of spout from cutting other items in or body of pack itself. GSI makes a 14oz nesting, lidded mug/bowl set that fits inside well. They don't sell it commonly, focusing on the 20oz set, but should be available when calling GSI Outdoors directly at 800.704.4474. Can also swap a 14oz mug/bowl from a smaller GSI set such as Micro Dualist into kettle for fast and light kit. A wide rubber band keeps the lid in place in transit. Great for boiling and re-hydrating. Not as uber-light as titanium or a beer can pot but use some common sense and this kettle is bomb proof.

      Highly recommend this as well as GSI Ketalist to Boy Scouts or others new to the trail acquiring gear for backpacking.


      Sweet kettle!

        This kettle was easily my best gear purchase of 2011! Overall, I am very happy with this product. I use the Ketalist primarily for boiling water or brewing up cowboy coffee over my Trangia stove, which nests neatly inside the kettle (along with the Trangia windscreen, a sea to summit collapsible cup, bandana/rag, and a few other small items). Having previously carried a small cookset, I was ready to trim a few ounces off my pack weight and this has served me very well. I removed the rubberized handle and lid grips as soon as I got it, so have no idea how they would have held up. I assume they would melt quite easily. Quick tip for those who care: Trim down a cork to fit the spout and your water will boil approx. 2 minutes faster!


        Killer gear

          I have the nested soloist 'ketalist' kit and love it! Absolutely the best all around water boiler I've used, and a great system of cup/bowl. This kettle has elevated to 'instant replace' status should anything happen. My only wish is to have a whistling spout cover--it is a kettle after all.

          Does GSI make a cup or bowl that nests...

          Does GSI make a cup or bowl that nests inside the 32oz kettle like it does for the larger version?

          The GSI Halulite Ketalist Cookset comes with this particular kettle and two special bowls that will nest inside of it.


          Great lightweight tea kettle

            Rugged, boils water very fast and lightweight enough to take along. Holds enough water for even the largest freeze dried package meals.


            Excellent Kettle

              This thing is fantastic! Bought it last year and it's been great. Very light, durable and with the added accessories very versatile. Cheaper than Titanium, but most all the benefits of the more expensive metal. I would buy it again and won't take a trip without it! Highly recommend it!
