    X-tremely awesome.

    Cooking can be a cumbersome endeavor, be it in your home kitchen or on the trail. Sea To Summit’s X Kettle transforms your open-air kitchen into the finest of dirtbag dining. This industrious, fully collapsible kettle doubles as a cooking pot with food-grade, heat-resistant silicone walls and has a translucent lid complete with a built in a strainer. The hard anodized aluminum base protects the pot from turning your pasta into something oogly-googly, and it also encourages optimal boiling time, so you can spend less time watching the pot boil and more time taking in the views.

    • Lightweight, durable, heat resistant silicone
    • Translucent lid with strainer
    • Two locking silicone handles
    • Nests with X-Cups, X-Mugs, and X-Bowls

    Great Kettle or Pot

    Familiarity:I've used it several times

    I love this Sea to Summit piece. I use it as a cooking pot as well and I would say the only difference is that it seems heavier than the X-Pot and the top isn't as wide, but for me, it works perfectly.

    Very convenient!

    Familiarity:I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    This kettle has been so convenient! I love how it collapses down to take up very little space. It is great for boiling water for hot cocoa and other warm drinks. It goes on every camping trip with me.

    Great Functionality

    Familiarity:I've used it several times

    Super light, compact, can be stored easily and keeps water hot. A wonderful design, to be sure.

    One of my Favorite Pieces of Gear!

    Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    The 6.5 oz collapsible X-Kettle is one of my all-time favorite pieces of backpacking and camping gear. It is lightweight, packs down small (6.5"x1 3/8"), and is easy to use. I bought this to reduce the size and weight of my previous cook system ( 8year-old Jetboil PCS ). I also bought it to vary the items I was cooking. By using a stove and X-Kettle, you can control what you are cooking and cook many items, as opposed to primarily boiling water for dehydrated meals and warm beverages. It is made of BPA-free heat resistant silicone and hard anodized aluminum. When you do boil water, it is really easy to pour because it has a spout and handles. It also has a clear lid, so you never have to open the lid to see if the water is boiling. The outside of the 1.3 liter kettle makes measuring your cooking water easy by putting cup markers on it ranging from 2-5 cups. I highly recommend this kettle! It is perfect for boiling water for 1-2 dehydrated meals, or more creative camp chefs who want to use a simmer function.

    Very cool pot

    Familiarity:I've used it several times

    Its lite enough and is collapses on its self so it take up no space in your pack. It says that it is 1.3L but keep in mind that it will only boil .8L of water. If you need to boil more than .8L of water at a time then go another direction.

    Might be just what you're after

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

    This kettle is ridiculously compact and it boils water well. I like that it nests with other Sea to Summit X products. The X Kettle is not a solo backpacking pot. Titanium & aluminum alternatives are lighter and nest the fuel can and stove. However, the X Kettle is perfect in situations where you aren't carrying the stove yourself. I'm thinking of warming huts and snowshoeing into yurts, anywhere you end up with a wood stove. I can see myself poking this in the pocket of my ski jacket with a pack of ramen - the shape lends it self to portability. I'd certainly never be able to shove my JetBoil or Titan kettle into a pocket. Hunting camp- if you're visiting a wall tent, why not brew some tasty coffee? Even collaborative camping - if someone else is hauling the stove and fuel, why not save pack space with the X Kettle? At this size, the X Kettle is a bit of a niche product. The collapsible concept makes a lot more sense on the other high-volume X Pots. If your niche is shaped like an X Kettle, I can't find a negative thing to say about it. Sea to Summit did a nice job producing a quality piece of cookware.

    I feel like I see your reviews everywhere on Backcountry! Ha, is there anything here you don't own? :) That being said, I just ordered this you did make me all paranoid with the idea it's not a good idea for solo backpacking. Granted, I mainly intended this as a luxury easy car camping pot to bowl water, but. I'm curious when you say lighter alternatives--do you mean the pots that are the regular ones you cook/eat with on a backpacking stove? I have very little experience backpacking--and this is why I'm curious! My one experience so far has been with a group (and they brought a ton of big items). Again, I didn't really plan on bringing this to backpacking per say (I purchased with a gift card). I love how nice and pack-a-ble it is, and my uber organizational nature is just so happy I can pack up my 2 mugs with it and shove it in a dry sack with the rest of my kitchen stuff. On the other hand, the price of doing that makes me second guess it wondering. . . perhaps I am just a tad crazy? Ha! Either way I always enjoy your super informative reviews, and the fact you include photos!

    If you have the sound on, please note that it was the fire from the stove that caused discomfort, no fault of the X Kettle. These were hangover biscuits and gravy, no one was running on all cylinders yet.

    be very careful with flames

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

    Flames touch the outside of this at all its DONE and no good. So your not going to use it in a camp fire. It is also heavier then other setups ad my video shows you
