    Best piece of equipment in my pack

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    What is better than fresh French-pressed coffee in the morning in the wilderness? Nothing. I have the smaller size, makes enough coffee for two. Light weight an you can pack dry goods inside the cup/press to save space. Works so well that I use it at home over my drip coffee maker.

    Camp kitchen essential!

      Not sure how we survived without this for so many years. After breaking a glass French press one morning, we ended up with a percolator but didn't like that. A friend had this and it worked great so we got our own, and have probably brewed 50+ times at camp. It insulates well, the coffee tastes great, it's easy to clean and is durable. What more could you want? Sometimes we'll brew extra strong coffee in the press and thin with boiling water at camp to make more cups at once. I've even been using it at home lately while waiting for new parts for my drip machine.. highly recommend!

      I've used GSI stuff before, and I always come back for their hard-to-break design and raw utility. This French Press is no different, and is super durable and great to take on any adventure.

      Works great

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Love this press. It doesn't leak any coffee grounds into your brew. And washes easily. I'd just say pour slowly, if you try to poor to fast it rolls backwards onto your hand

      Mmm... Coffee!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This Java Press has served me well in the past 4 years. I've largely used it camping, but do use it at home, too. It's super durable and makes a solid cup of French press joe. It does filter the sediment pretty well, too. I broke my glass, fancy-pants French press a few years back and had been using this thing at home for the past few years (I did get a new FP recently, tho). That being said, the gasket does throw a temper tantrum every now and then, so it's important to wet the press before pushing down, otherwise it can get stuck (womp womp).

      My only gripe is that it's a bit bulky, so it's best used while car camping.

      Winner Winner

      Chicken dinner!

      Best French press around for car camping and multiple people. Makes the perfect amount for 3 large travel mugs of coffee first thing in the AM.

      Love it!


        I had been looking for a large french press for camping over the last few days and was stoked to come across this one. it works great, like a press should and is durable to be protected from the happenings of camp life.

        It Survived Peace Corps, Which Is Huge

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I bought the previous version of this press in about August 2014, and used it almost every single day for two years at my rustic Peace Corps post in Central Africa. I left it behind so other volunteers could benefit from it (it was still in great condition), but I literally just bought a new one because I'll be traveling abroad again soon and I know I will appreciate having it.
        I loved how lightweight it is, that it's durable and shatterproof (HUGE deal), that the sleeve keeps the coffee warm -- AND, with this newer version, the handle is plastic and attached to the body of the press, whereas with mine, the handle was just cloth and attached to the outer sleeve (which was really the only weird-ish thing about it that I didn't love, and even that was a minor complaint).
        The plunger & seal worked really well to keep grounds out of my coffee, although every now and then the plunger would suddenly become really really hard to push down... But I was probably just doing it wrong.
        I didn't even have running water, and it was still super easy to clean out. Love love love this object.

        There's nothing like a hot cup of coffee at the campsite. Waking up in the early morning, outdoors - there's nothing more satisfying than a quick, easy cup of coffee. I bought this for camping and now I use it every day.

        Work and Play

        Pretty rad press. It's been with me both indoors and outdoors and does a great job! Reason for 4 stars is make sure your grounds are "course" because you'll end up with small pieces in your drink.

        pretty cool

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        This thing gets the job done and is big enough to make 5 people a cup. You'll definitely want to share with others, cause the coffee doesn't stay hot for long..

        My life blood

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        my boyfriend got this for me for my birthday because I always wanted coffee while camping! This thing is awesome, durable, and cleans easily. Its got this awesome sleeve that will keep your coffee warm for a long time! Its got a great plunge and the seal doesn't allow any coffee grounds to ruin your drink! The only downside is that I stained my sleeve with the coffee itself and that makes me sad but its still great coffee! Dark, rich, and thick!

        Not actually double walled

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

        The lid of this press is double-walled, but the body is not. The EVA sleeve keeps your coffee relatively warm, but not as warm or for as long as a true vacuum double-wall press does. I suppose the tradeoff comes in the weight category, but then again, if I'm carrying a French press, I'm not backpacking and I don't care about the weight that much. GSI makes a stainless double-wall press that I have used and that is awesome; however, Backcountry does not carry it.

        I have used this daily for a year and a half now while serving in Jamaica. It has survived multiple trips on public transportation, insane humidity and some creative packing techniques. I love this press. I can drop it and it doesn't crack, and it is light enough to drag across island. My only gripe is that it seems to trap a lot of coffee under the actual press part, making it a bit of an effort to drain all of the precious liquid out at the end. Other than that, awesome press for the price.
