Comments about GSI Halulite Minimalist:

This is an excellent pot/mug/bowl for a single person looking to save weight during backpacking trips. It is incredibly lightweight and seems very durable. The sip lid/pot cover and pot gripper make this an all-in-one package for a lightweight backpacker.

The only negative thing is the included spork is pretty flimsy; HOWEVER considering this pot rivals titanium weight at a considerably lower price, the spork is like a free bonus if you need a spare.

The benefits greatly outweigh the flimsy spork: lightweight, excellent price, perfect size for one (and usable for two people, though you'd have to reheat more water for drinks/cleaning and bring an extra bowl), durable, and transfers heat quickly making boiling water more efficient. Another added bonus is the packability - a 4oz. fuel can (Jetboil, not MSR, but they both work with my MSR PocketRocket), two spice shakers and the pot gripper fit snuggly inside.

In short, for such a low price you won't find a better 1-person multipurpose cook kit. Ignore the complaints about the spork and get this cookset!

Service and delivery comments:

Nearly every product I order from EMS.com arrives within two days, even when using ground shipping. Amazingly fast!

Comments about GSI Halulite Minimalist:

After owning the GSI Halulite Minimalist for a couple years now, I know that this is a great piece of gear. I ordered this second set for my girlfriend so that we could each have our own. It comes with us on every trip from dayhikes to longer overnight adventures. There are lighter options available, but for the cost you can't beat the GSI Halulite Minimalist. The included lid, insulation and pot gripper provide everything you need to easily cook food or drink and then use it as a mug preventing the need to carry extra gear. I like that it fits over the bottom of a nalgene bottle when you don't need the lid. This cuts down on packing space. It is also large enough to hold the 3.5oz mini fuel cans that I use for my MSR Pocketrocket stove. The stove fits inside as well, but the stove and fuel will not both fit inside at the same time. A flatter model stove may fit with the fuel can. The pot is large enough to boil water for most meals. It is great for hot cocoa or tea and large enought to cook Ramen Noodles in it. Even on longer trips when we take our larger cookware, we still take this set.
