perfect

what can I say about this thing that hasn't been said...

not much other than even the ppl I show it to who could care less for the outdoors thinks its the coolest thing they've ever seen. Women love it. Even my not so outdoorsy friends have mentioned its size and portability along with my MSR pocket rocket gives them second thoughts on possibly strapping on a pack and headin out with me one day!!! Bought this about a year ago while gearing up for a trip thru the AT next year. Have used it many times and it has been the best thing as far as cooking goes for a fast packing soloist kit. Got the tip from Backpacker magazine 08 gear review guide and didn't think twice bout the choice I made. Thanks Backpacker and Backcountry!!!

Convenient set up

I really enjoy this product. Very compact. My Brunton Raptor fits right inside perfectly! Also the stuff sack/sink does a pretty good job of holding water. Nice little extra not found on many other cookware sets. Would definately recommend to anyone looking for a solo cook set.

Price, weight, versatility... unbeatable

I love this set. I don't think I could have found a more compact full cook kit for the price and weight. The pot is plenty stable on my tiny Optimus Crux. The insulated mug is great but it does hold smell a bit, have to give it a good wash at home. I certainly wouldn't use it for food, just eat out of the pot. It does serve its purpose for tea and coffee. The welded seam stuff sac is a nice addition but is probly more of a novelty than function. Overall a fantastic set. Would definetly buy again.

Genius!

This system is smarter than me.

Reasonable sized pot is light, with a stay cool handle that is sturdy and folds up over the top to the pot. Nesting bowl has neoprene sleeve. The lid can be used as a strainer or turned up-side-down fits securely into the bowl and has sip hole. Stuff sack is water proof and can be used as a small camp sink. Little pouch houses your stove.

The whole thing nests in it as well an 8oz canister, stove, and folding spork, and easily fits into my pack, no problem.

Great cookset for the Svea 123!

This is a great cookset, truly a marvel of design. Lightweight, but large enough to meet almost any cooking need. It is not easy to fry in but it can be done. The included mug/bowl has many uses, and the ingenious neoprene sleeve for it makes eating hot foods much easier. The handles are perfect; much easier to use than pot grippers. Pouring is a breeze with the sip hole in the lexan lid. Here is my favorite part: if you remove the 3 pot supports from a Svea 123 and store them in the pouch that comes with this set, and mush the Svea's lid/cup down a little onto the stove, it will fit inside this set, and give you an extra, smaller "pot" (the Svea's lid) to boot. The mug/bowl will fit right over the Svea, the Lexan lid will fit over the mug, and the folding handle holds the whole thing together. I put a little paper towel between stove and pot to eliminate rattle and scratches. The little pouch slides right down inside, between stove and pot, so it is all neatly contained. I haven't used the "camp sink" feature of the stuff sack yet but it's kind of neat -- a day will come when it is just the thing.

Flawless design!

The design of this cook system gives me chills -- it's absolutely brilliant!! It's no wonder Backpacker Magazine gave it it's Editor's Award for 2008. The hard anodized halulite alloy pot reminds me of a lighter version of the calphalon cookwear I use at home. It's easy to clean (using a little sand and then a little water) and continues to look new even after many a meal on the trail. It's also the perfect size for one -- not too small -- allowing you to do more than just boil water. The integrated handle is my favorite part; it's a much more stable design than precariously clipping on a pot handle. It packs up really small too -- a 110g or 220g fuel canister and canister stove all stack inside the pot along with the mug (you can buy a "telescoping" foon too). GSI even included a soft flannel pocket with a velcro closure so you can leave the hard canister stove case at home. Pop on the lid and click the pot handle over the top and voila! You are good to go. By the way, the pot lid has strainer holes (for making pasta) and FLIPPING the lid over and inserting it onto the mug allows it to double as a sip-it lid for keeping liquids hot. Oh yeah...and the stuff sack can be used as a little camp sink for washing the dishes. KUDOS to the designers of this and the dualist!!
