If you're not nesting a stove in this pot, it fits almost perfectly around the stainless Nalgene (made by Guyot designs -I can't vouch for the standard Nalgenes although I suspect that they would be fine too) and also the large size 40oz Klean Kanteen. The included mesh sack also reaches to the shoulder / neck of both of these bottles so that you can tighten the draw cord and keep the bottle / pot securely together. Great combination!

The best thing about this pot is the lid. The lid sits flat with the top of the pot for compact storage and it also fits tightly. The vented lid also retains the right amount of steam to more effectively and efficiently cook things like oatmeal and rice! I also really like the dimensions- it's tall enough to hold a decent amount of water without filling right to the brim and risking boil-over, and it's also wide enough to fit stably on many stoves. I have several pieces of titanium cookware from Snow Peak, Evernew and MSR, and this Titan Kettle is the most versatile.

I like a taller pot like this because you can leave some margin at the top of the pot to prevent boil over without loosing all of your capacity like you do with shorter and wider pots. The lid/pan isn't big enough for much cooking, but it makes a great dish for eating out of. The handles of both pieces are sturdy and, wile the ones on the pot do not extend very far and may get hot, I have never been concerned about them collapsing on me. Well done, Snow Peak.

I am 6'3" 185lbs, with a really long torso, and the large model is one of the best fitting jackets that I've ever owned. I bought a black model originally and recently ordered a Titanium colored backup from backcountry.com. While the fit is still great, the titanium model uses darker stitching than the body fabric which creates quite a bit of contrast and takes away from the clean lines of the jacket. I recommend sticking with a darker model. Otherwise, the jacket is great! It's light, packs small and sheds water well. Highly recommended if you need a long-fitting jacket.

There are two reasons to buy this Snow Peak titanium set over the more reasonably priced competition: 1) the case and 2) the knife. The kit is held together by a nylon case, rather than a clip, and while this case adds to the weight it also protects items in your pack from getting scratched and skewered by your cutlery. Also, the knife is not serrated so it won't scratch up your plates and cookware so badly, but it still cuts well. I wish the bowl of the spoon was a little bit deeper to hold more soup, but other than that this set is perfect.
