I missed in the description that this didn't come with a stuff sack like similar kettles at this price point. That was a let down because the lid doesn't stay on when it jostle around in my food bag. <br ></article><br />It's a nice enough kettle however, well made and a nice size. The rubber on the handle will melt as other have mentioned.

I know you can pair this device with a smartphone but as a stand-alone device, would I be able to enter specific gps coordinates and the device route me there (with arrows I guess)? An area I frequent has numerous off-trail waterfalls or other features that I only have the coordinates for and wondered if this would work for that (if I didn't want to use my phone). Thanks!

This is a neat spork/chopstick combination and the way they fit together is really cool. It comes in a really nice tin that makes this GREAT as a gift. However, it is a little heavy for lightweight backpacking. The spork weighs in at 0.8 ounces and the chopsticks at 0.5 for a total of 1.3 ounces. (This doesn't include the tin case). Plus, the chopsticks can sometimes move around a little when set inside the spork so, while ingenious, it is not perfect.

I picked up this set because I knew I wanted the stove and thought with the identified weight in the Backcountry.com description that I would be saving weight over my Coleman pot set from Wally World.

Instead, I found that the weights listed for this set are WRONG - bad wrong! The set actually weighs 14.3 ounces, almost a full pound and 4.6 ounces more than the advertised weight. The pot and its stuff sack alone (without the stove) weighs 10.5 ounces (9.9 ounces w/out the sack).

So I am really disappointed, especially since this pot & lid actually weighs MORE than my Wal-Mart cookset. I thought about sending it back but really like the stove and don't want to deal with the hassle of trading it all out.

As stated, I really like the stove and recommend it fully but cannot recommend this set, especially since you can get something cheaper, equally well made, and lighter in the camping section at at Wal-Mart.
