Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Ive been using this little pot/cup for years now on solo backpacking trips, lived out of it for a month in Iceland, and even use it for car camping: my conclusion? Almost perfect.
Its a perfect size for a meal that may require boiling water, so breakfast with oatmeal and coffee is a cinch, dry pastas or mix-ins requiring water are also fantastic for this. Would not recommend for frying or grilling things (i tried to make it work, did not go over well..)
The sleeve it comes in is very good at insulating and protecting your hand from the heat of the cup. No complaints there, in fact id say its a huge bonus.
The pot holder is kind of useful, but easy to lose. keep an eye on that sucker.
The spork that comes with this is completely useless. Broke it on my second use which left me improvising for the rest of a multi day trip.. Bring your own metal spork.
And thats my only complaint. The lid could use a closable top, but its never been an issue for me. This pot is a critical piece of my backpacking set up. Lightweight, small, durable, fillable with gear, and super useful. will buy again if it ever comes to it.
