The Almost Perfect Pot

I've put it through the wringer
True to size

I purchased this pot to replace my old MSR stainless steel pot set-up from the early nineties in an attempt to lighten my pack for a week long backpack along the CDT through the Wind Rivers in June. The pot worked well to boil water for meals for our group of four. All of our meals required re-hydrating in boiling water with the occasional simmer and the tight-fitting lid ensured a quick boil and that little heat or steam escaped while we patiently waited for tasty meals. The inside of the pot cleaned up easily in freezing water with little scrubbing required. I love how the pot held my MSR fuel canister, my Pocket Rocket Deluxe stove, and two Snow Peak titanium bowls. The handle flips over the top to lock the lid on and keep everything contained. The only downside is that the handle can twist slightly when one tilts the pot and it popped out a few times. It's hard to wrangle the handle back into place. Otherwise, it's a great addition to my backpacking kitchen.
