Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good cookset, could be great Overall I really like this cookset, the bowls are just right for size, the clear lid with strainer holes is convenient, and I prefer the ceramic non-stick coating over the teflon you see on most pots. The coating is also white inside, seems to make it easier to see the contents when your cooking/boiling water. I dont care for the mugs, they take up all the space inside the pot and you cant really fit anything inside them. Would be better if the mugs were similar to the bowls so they can nest inside, with secure lids, insulating sleeves, and best of all usable space inside for stove and fuel canister.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MSR does it again!!!!!! Im not one who has been crazy about buying a complete cooking system. I've always been more about creating what works best for you. But when I saw this set I had to really give it up for MSR. Lightweight, two person system that is very compact and will do almost anything.Very light, and when paired with the MSR folding untesils its perfect.I used it with my MSR Whisperlite. I also carry a pocket rocket inside one of the cups as a back up. Overall, I have to say Im very impressed. Plan on buying the coffee press that goes with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Is The One To Get This is, as far as I am concerned, the ideally sized and built backpacking cookware set for a couple - even when traveling with a larger group. The 2L pot is compact and light, but plenty large for making coffee for a group and can easily cook pasta or Ramen noodles. Unlike other pots with Teflon non-stick coating, the ceramic coating is durable and can even handle metal utensils if you're not a caveman with it. Like all backpacking gear it's built as thin and light as possible, but by storing so much inside it is unlikely you'll damage it. Adding the coffee press (which, unfortunately, won't pack inside) makes it worth taking with you for a quick summit or an extended weekend trip. Inside, besides the two well built and thought out mugs with sip lids and bowls, I can fit everything I need to cook and eat except for a fuel canister. I have a small absorbent towel, little bottle of soap, a pair of folding forks and spoons, dish scraper / brush, spices, and stove. The insulated mugs are especially good, and save me a lot of space in my pack. I strongly prefer them to the bowl shaped "mugs" in the popular (and nearly as good) GSI kit. While I went elsewhere for my stove and other parts of my kit, I am really thrilled with how well thought out and designed for long term use this MSR Trail Lite Duo cook set is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pot! Used this pot on an 11-day backpacking trip. Stuck stuff to the bottom, and it just wiped off. LOVE the pot. White interior makes it easier to clean. Bowls and insulated cups are a nice plus.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light and compact system Very light and compact. Used mostly the pot for boiling water while backpacking. Perfect size for MSR Pocket Rocket stove and fuel canister. I've only used the cups a few times, but the lids are hard to get off, especially with gloves. It would be nice to have some kind of bag to protect the outside – had to make a one of my own.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great pot, okay bowls and cups Used this set backpacking, one of the bowls broke on a rock so we exchanged it for a new set. So far the new set has held up great. I especially like the size of the pot, it is larger than the one we had previously, but still great for backpacking.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Way lite and compact I would have given 5 stars except the coffee filter I bought from MSR doesn't fit inside the mug. But light weight set that packs up small

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Time Tested My husband and I got this as a wedding gift almost 5 years ago. We have used it on many canoe/camping adventures and it has held up fairly well. The only fault is that the lid will melt if licked by flames. Other than that, it is a perfect one-pot cooker in which we have prepared everything from pasta to morning coffee in. The cups stay upright on some of the most jagged surfaces in nature, despite being the shape they are. They are surprisingly steady even in the bottom of the canoe! A great minimal cook set for a two person troupe.

What is the largest circumference of the pot, I am looking for a mess kit that will fit in the twofish 40fl oz quick cage, that can handle a standard Nalgene bottle.
