MSR Flex 3 System Cooksetis rated5.0out of5by1.
Rated5out of5byfromSweet SystemThis set is sweet. I spent a chunk of time trying to figure out how best to pack my 2-person Snowpeak ti cookset and some REI mugs, etc into various camping pots when I finally came to the realization that I just wasn't going to outdo the system that MSR had already designed. I've used this set for car camping and backpacking. The pots are perfect volumes for 3-4 people and the plates and mugs are quite flexible in terms of function. I generally use the mugs for coffee and tea in the morning and cocktails and beer in the evening, and they do both well. As far as I've seen, the metal lips of the mugs can't be much (if at all) hotter than their contents, so there's no reason that they should burn your lips unless their contents were so hot that they were going to burn the inside of your mouth anyways. The mugs insulate better than any single wall cup but not as well as most vacuum insulated cups, which makes sense. I've used one of the mugs as my go-to drinking vessel for international travel and was very happy with it. I think the talon handle works really well, too. I have also, unfortunately, already gotten to price a replacement piece. My friend was melting some butter in my brand-new smaller pot when I looked in and saw that the pot had a nice grey plate lining the bottom. The replacement plate for the melted one was reasonably priced from MSR. I think that most companies have a hard time justifying offering replacement parts at all when considering the bottom line, so I'm ok with paying a little more for replacement parts than not being able to get them at all, as is the normal situation with most consumer products these days. I have already given the MSR Quick 2 System, essentially the same setup for 2 people, as a gift to a friend. PS, I think this is my first internet review of any product, ever. I wanted to offer my positive experience after seeing other less than stellar reviews of this product.
