Familiarity: I've used it several times

First of all I think this cooking kit is brilliant, comfortable and very lightweight. That said I would definitely loose the cups (0.5 of the kit weight) and switch them with regular plastic cups (although I don't do alpine hiking for which it may be useful). I know there is a kit sold without cups and bowls for ~60$ - I would definitely go for that one. Also, after 10 uses or so in one of the pots a small part of the overlay got pealed

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

I used it in the Indian Himalayas (~4500 m) in the evening over a short t-shirt and it worked like a charm although it wasn't that cold (~15 C I think).
I does not feel like the most luxury fleece and it is a bit big to carry around but I don't think that there are other fleeces that are more compact but are just as worm. Eventually - a great catch for 90$ (on sale).

Cheers

I wanא to buy a windproof and waterproof Jacket for my girl and I have narrowed it down to 4 possible models:

Marmot Gravity Softshell Jacket - Women's

Marmot Altitude Softshell Jacket - Women's

The North Face Apex Bionic Softshell Jacket - Women's

Patagonia Guide Softshell Jacket - Women's

What do you think I should get considering water resistance, warmth, breathebility and general comfort (not too densed).
I don't know if it matters but she is a Medium size by the Marmot sizes....

Thanks!!!
