great system

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Used this system with my MSR Whisperlite system on Mount Rainier with great success. Never had a problem, easy to keep clean, was able to melt adequate amount of snow in this compact system. Was quite light and worth the weight for my tent mate and I to share for our trip. With everything packed there was still room for extra stuff like some oatmeal and spice packs stuffed in with the mugs. Great experience! Would definitely recommend to a friend and purchase MSR again.

lightweight and packable

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

this set is perfect for a couple going on a backpacking trip. Super lightweight, the mugs and bowls fit together perfectly and are super light. I was even able to add sporks and still close and stow away!

Lightweight and perfect for the 2 person backpacking trip. I plan on using it many more times. Cups double as measuring cups which is really handy.
