Description

These MSR Alpine Pots are a helpful kind of stowaway.

Discovering certain types of stowaways—like your neighbor's annoying kid—amidst your pile of camping gear in the truck wouldn't be good. The MRS Alpine Stowaway Pots however, are the good kind of stowaway. The Alpine Stowaway Pots have a hinged handle that flips over the fitted lid and locks it in place, so these pots are easy to handle and easy to pack. These scratch-and dent-resistant stainless steel pots stand up to seasons of camping. Choose one size for simple meals, or a combination of different sized Alpine Stowaway Pots for long car-camping or kayaking trips.

Not the lightest pot, but great!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have the 775mL version of this pot and have beat the crap out of it. I gladly sacrifice ultra-lightness for the fact that it's not aluminum and that you can beat the crap out of it. I love how everything latches down... I can fit my primus stove, spices, matches, tinder (dryer lint, seriously, I go steal it from the laundromat by the armload because it works so well) potholder and napkins in here no problem. I usually use it for solo camping or boiling water for a couple of people...anything more than that and I'd buy a bigger one. I'd buy it again and again, but I haven't had to because this one has lasted me three years! Four stars because when you try to pour water over it, unless you have the dexterity of a brain surgeon it's gonna make a bit of a mess.

Not the lightest pot, but great!

Will the 1.6 fit on a giga power stove?...

Will the 1.6 fit on a giga power stove? Also can I use the pot on a grate over a camp fire?

Responded on

Not sure on the giga power, but I've used mine over a grate on a campfire and if you're careful and keep it way on the edges it's okay (it got a little blackened on mine but wiped off pretty well). But I don't think I'd put it front and center over a grate. I usually use cast iron for that, if I'm car camping.

Solid Pot

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

Had a chance to use this for the first time over the weekend. I purchased the 1.1L, and it seems to be a great size for 1-2 people, might be a little small for anymore than that. Boils water great, balances well on my PocketRocket, which was a concern initially. Also, the PocketRocket and a canister of fuel fits inside perfectly, so its a good space saver. It is a tab heavy, being stainless steal, but I'd say its worth the weight with how well constructed it seems to be. All in all, solid, simple product.

Great Idea But Pours Terribly

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Well built, stainless steel and not aluminum (never use aluminum to cook with), handy snap. I got the one quart. However, the inside rim on the top has a little dip that goes inside the pot, this prevents a steady flow of water out, especially when pour hot water into a small opening. The water doesn't pour straight out, it runs along the outside of the pot and misses the intended hole such as a coffee mug or Nalgene. Bad design on the rim. Burnt my hands a lot. I have been an avid backcountry and mountaineer cook for 20 years and never had this problem. Would not recommend it.

Durable, Functional and Well Engineered

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have been a fan/user of MSR for a number of years. Their products are bomb-proof and executed brilliantly. I lived in a MSR Twin Sister tent in NE Washington near the Canadian border for over a year and extensively used the MSR Alpine Stowaway. It performed admirably in conjunction with my Optimus Nova+ as well as over a campfire.

what would be the best size for a solo trip that requires one night of snow melting?

Responded on

Hey Nick,

It really depends on what your needs are but I would probably go with one of the two larger pots. The great thing about pots is they really don't take up that much extra room in your pack because most anything that could be displaced by the size could just be packed inside it.

great little pot

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought the 1.1L pot, works great for 1 or 2 people to boil water for meal. It is not big enough to house the whisperlite inside though.

my go to

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

this is my go to pot for trips, especially when snow melting is involved. holds lots of snow for quick melting, good sizes for 1 pot meals, and holds my stove (usually a pocket rocket) and fuel cansiter or other accessories nicely. Lid secures perfectly.

Inexpensive, durable, light pot

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

That says it all really, I stick my MSR Whisperlite inside the 1.6L

Only issue is handle doesn't clip as snugly into the pot after many uses, but you can bend the metal a bit to remedy this

Would the MSR Pocket Rocket and fuel fit...

Posted on

Would the MSR Pocket Rocket and fuel fit Inside the .775 ml sized pot, or would I need the 1.1 L pot?

Best Answer Responded on

This would obviously depend on what size fuel canister you buy. I think you would be able to fit one or the other inside of the .775 L pot, but I doubt you could squeeze both in. The 1.1 should be able to fit both if you have a small gas canister though. That being said I only personally own the 1.1L, and have only seen the .775L on display, so I could be wrong.

Can the handle be used as a bail, if folded...

Posted on

Can the handle be used as a bail, if folded across the top and without the lid? Would it be stable, or is it too straight? Wondering if this can be suspended over a fire.

Responded on

The handle would be plenty strong enough and it technically could work to use it as a bail, though it is very flat so I think you would have one heck of a time balancing the unit.

nice pot

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Indestructible, latching lid, well made. The MSR windpro 2 fits perfectly in the 775ml. I could not be happier. Ken

Is this a set? Or do I buy the individual pots/pans separately to make a complete set?

Responded on

Hey Fritz,

These pots are all individual, in the drop down menu you have the option of selecting the size you prefer.

Good buy

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I got this on sale, and I love it. I've used it countless times and its still perfectly fine. I have the 1.1 liter and I take it everywhere. I've dropped it and beat it up pretty good with no real signs of wear, it's very sturdy. It's not the lightest pot but its durable and it works great for a good price.

Does anyone know if these pots can nest...

Does anyone know if these pots can nest with the MSR Alpine Fry Pan?

Hey CJ,

Yeah it will. Slightly on the looser side of the perfect nest, but the 1.6L pot goes right in.

Handy Little Pot

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is neither the lightest, nor most expensive, pot that I own, but that is part of what makes it so great. It's solid, doesn't dent easy, cleans up very well. (i've burned it completely black on campfires before, and with a little scrubbing action back home it was back to the normally shiny steel.) So I don't have to worry about babying it. The locking lid is great, easily keep a few bowls, mini stove, etc. inside.

The 1.1 liter is a bit big for one person in my opinion, though it obviously can work fine for that, but it is great for cooking a meal for two. Pasta, couscous, rice... I have made many one pot meals that easily feed two in this baby. It is a bit on the heavy side, and if i'm just cooking for myself I just bring my little 600mL titanium pot, but this has its place in everyone's cooking arsenal
