Familiarity: I've used it several times
I got this because I wanted it to match my ladle. It does.

Pretty much all you can ask for in a ladle. It ladles quite nicely.
Once it's set up, this table is pretty sweet. It's a nice height, it feels pretty sturdy, its fits a stove nicely. The only problem is getting it set up can be a pain the first few times--the metal is stubborn and squeaky. But I put some WD-40 on the joints where it was having trouble opening and now the whole thing works like a charm!
Works well to dry dishes. Dries super quick.
HOWEVER. If you're going to buy a microfiber towel, please buy one of these to wash it in!!!!!!!!!
Microfiber pollution is a huge issue facing our streams and oceans, so please do your part to reduce your impact. Read more here:
I got these shoes for really cheap, wasn't expecting much out of them but so far they've pleasantly surprised me. They're perfect gym shoes; comfy and surprisingly sticky. The colors are pretty vibrant so you'll stick out like a sore thumb wearing them. Hopefully they'll fade over time.
This press works great! The plastic feels a little flimsy, but I haven't had any issues with it so far. Makes great coffee!
These are pretty much perfection nut-wise. In case you were wondering, this set comes with nuts that do NOT have the engraved #s on them. The numbers are up top on the plastic part.
This is one ugly rope color-wise. In person it looks like an office-building carpet from the 80s. But I don't care too much about that; I love that it's mostly recycled material. It's smooth and catches great.
Great for getting stuck nuts out. Perfect for cracking open a beer.
There's nothing to be said about these that hasn't already been said; they're pretty much perfect. Who needs cams if you have a set of these??
The only issue I've ever had is that I once broke the plastic part of a #7 after a pretty big whipper. The nut would probably still work fine bit I decided to retire it after that.
Does the job! Love that it's locally made (Salt Lake City). Not too much to say about this one--if you've ever used a cast iron skillet before, well, this is like that.
This is a fine pot, the only annoying thing comes from how it pairs with another Primus item--namely, the pan from the Campfire Cookset (both Small and Large versions). For some ungodly reason, the lid for this pot is just a few millimeters too short to work as a lid for the pan (and the pan doesn't come with a lid). If they had just made the rim of THIS lid a tiiiiiiiiny bit bigger, it would have fit perfectly and could be used for both the 3L pot and the pan.
I really want to love this set up, but they make it hard to do that. The pots themselves seem pretty durable, but the handles are way too flimsy. The handle for the pan is the worst I've seen; if you don't open it JUST right, creates a lever that pries off the metal piece holding the handle in place. Also (though admittedly this is my fault) be careful not to burn yourself on the handles--they get HOT. I stupidly burnt a huge hole through my down puffy because I gripped the handles with the sleeve for a second because the handle was burning me. That was my fault, not the pot's. But still get a hot pad to hold the handles with if you get this set up.
The absolute WORST thing about this set up is that the lid from the 3L pot (sold separately/included in the Large version of this kit) doesn't fit the pan! It's just a few millimeters too short--could easily have been made to fit the pan, but no. I really wanted a lid for the pan for steaming veggies, but oh well.
I adore this cup. It's easy to clean, the lightest cup I know of, and incredibly durable. It's a bit on the smaller side 13.5 fl oz), which is perfect for me but could annoy some people. One negative about titanium is that it doesn't retain heat well, so if you grab the cup part instead of the handles, you could burn your hand, and since it doesn't hold heat you gotta drink fast before it cools. But that's a small price to pay for such durable and lightweight material.
Easy to clean, light, and durable. I like to use dirt to scrub my dishes but that method leaves big scratches in most bowls. Not this titanium though!
Nothing kitchy or fancy, just a plain titanium bowl. I love that this doesn't have ridges or anything that food could get stuck in--makes it super simple to clean off. I like to use dirt to scrub my dishes but that method leaves big scratches in most bowls. Not this titanium though! One thing I will say about titanium is that it doesn't retain heat well, so you might burn your hand if there is hot soup in the bowl, and you gotta eat fast before it cools. But that's a small price to pay for such durable and lightweight material.
Bright, light, and rechargeable. What more could you want? My favorite thing about BD headlamps is how easily adjustable the strap is.
It lasts way longer than I thought it would on one charge. It's not the lightest on the market, but it's not super heavy either. I love recharging it instead of going and buying new batteries after every long trip. Overall, I'm quite pleased.
Warm, comfy, a lil itchy but all around exactly what you'd want out of a merino wool base layer. Be careful how you wash it; don't toss it in with the rest of your laundry. I just followed the instructions on the tag for my first few washes and had none of the issues other people are mentioning.
I regretted this purchase after using it on a week-long camping trip because it's really hard to get clean. You need to use a LOT of your water to get the gunk out of this thing, so it's really only good if there's a sink or river nearby (although it obviously shouldn't be washed out directly in a river - LNT!). I'll just go back to scrubbing my plates with dirt and a little water.
