Wears out very fast

    Using this pot for 1-2 day tramping trips and drive in camping.

    Plastic ring on the top broke in half after couple uses. My mates have the same problem and MSR sent them a new one and it broke again.

    Pot itself easy to scratch and just looks poor for the price after half a year of light usage (no more than 10 trips).

    Love how light weight it is.


    For solo or sharing

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

    Used this pot for the first time last weekend. This pot was the perfect size for heating up water for oatmeal for 3 people and instant coffee for me in the morning and for boiling a box of pasta for mac & cheese in the evening. You can decide whether to share your warm food or keep it for yourself!


    One and done

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    This thing is perfect for all camping uses. Light, durable, perfectly designed. Once you master it, you can pour into a mug/bag easily with lid on through the perforated part of the lid. The foldable handle is also well designed to keep lid in place. Pocket Rocket stove fits perfectly inside.

    I bought the MSR kettle as well thinking it would be easier for pouring, but this makes it obsolete and turns out was a waste of money.

    Cleans up easily.

    My pot cover has a little crimp in it that looks like it is supposed to help keep the lid on when stored. Is this supposed to be there or is this damage?

    The crimp on your pot lid is intentional and should mate with the hook on your pot.

    Can this be used over an open flame fire?...

    Can this be used over an open flame fire? I do not wish to use my jet boil unless I need to.

    No. Aluminum and titanium can be permanently damaged by the extreme heat from an open flame(this is made from aluminum).

    Though it is possible to use stainless steel, MSR does not recommend it.

    FYI, here is the link to MSR's FAQ page:

    Also... you'd want an easily detachable handle for cooking over a fire... and this ain't got one!


    Easy and Light

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    Used this while on a five day backpacking trip for my daily dinners. This was an easy set up and able to fit a few pieces inside while in transit. Fits well inside the pack as well. Look forward to using this piece in the future.


    Great pot

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    I took this pot out on a 17 day backpacking expedition through the Mono Divide region of the Seirras. This pot is light weight and there are a couple things I really like about it. One of them is the talon handle. It has a good grip and won't let the pot fold over on you when you hold it upside down. Which is really helpful when you're straining water out of pasta. Which brings me to my next point: the strainer holes. They are really nice when cooking pasta and the talon handle perfects it because it won't let the pot fold on you when you strain it. Love this pot. The attached picture is from when my group bivied on top of Mt. Hooper at 12,349 ft.

    Great pot

    Will the MSR XGK EX fit into this pot and allow the lid to close?

    Best Answer

    No, you need at least a 2L pot. Try the MSR Alpinist 2 @ 2.4L. Don't forget to pad the stove or it will tear up the pot's finish.

    Hi, could you please measure and weigh this pot for me? 6.75 x 3.75 = 128 cunic inches = 2.1 Litres!! Please measure the inner diameter of the pot itself and the inner height, as well as weight with lid, thanks.

    Anybody know: does the MSR Whisperlite...

    Anybody know: does the MSR Whisperlite International fit inside this thing? Thanks.

    The whisper light is .25" too tall with the lid on, otherwise it fits the other dimensions. You could put the whisper lite in the pot and shove the lid somewhere else in your pack to keep things compact.
