    Comments about MSR Alpine 2-Pot Set:

    I was very pleased with how the equipment handled. I did not put the gear through intense conditions but I would be very comfortable doing so based on the experiance I had. I loved the detachable handle, very easy to use and light but durable, it felt solid in your hand. The versatility of the lid being both a plate and a lid makes this piece of gear perfect for two people to use on a trip. The gear cleaned up very easily with just water and a little finger grease cutting the time to do dishes way down. I kept the meals pretty simple, just the dehydrated stuff and oatmeal and it worked great. Its not the lightest stuff, but it definately is not the heaviest either. Great gear for the price.

      Comments about MSR Alpine 2-Pot Set:

      If you are like me, you enjoy carrying items that are completely versatile. That means, you want to be able to use these items in a wide variety of situations. The MSR Alpine 2 cookset is the perfect versatile equipment for cooking in a backwoods setting. Here's why:

      Campfire Cooking: I prefer stainless over aluminum and titanium, primarily because of it's ability to withstand intense heat. If you plan on cooking over a fire, forget aluminum and titanium. They will degrade under intense heat and are poor conductors. These stainless steel pots will withstand open flame and will actually blacken over during campfire cooking, which will provide better heat conduction. If you plan on cooking over an open fire at all, stainless is really the best option. Also, unlike many other cooksets offered out there, this set has no plastic on it that can melt while cooking in a fire. Again, versatility takes priority over saving a few ounces in my humble opinion.

      Stove cooking: This set is perfectly stable on a variety of stoves. I use it on my Soto OD-R1 stove and it fits perfectly. I have also used it on my friend's pocket rocket, which also fits both pots perfectly. It also conducts heat very well, thus not wasting valuable stove fuel.

      Cooking ability: Many of the "cooksets" out there, aren't actually for cooking. They're made primarily for boiling water on a stove for Mountain House meals, or other dehydrated/freeze-dried foods. If you plan on catching fish and frying them up, or even just cooking some beans and rice in a pot, you should be using something with the ability to cook. In my opinion, I think these stainless steel pots would perform much better in these situations than an aluminum GSI Dualist, or something of a similar nature.

      Weight: Yes, they are heavier than aluminum and titanium. That's where this becomes a matter of preference. If weight is a higher priority than versatility, and you're happy with eating primarily dehydrated meals during your adventures, then get the aluminum or titanium sets and save yourself some ounces. But if you're like me, and a versatile cookset is worth the extra weight, then get this one! It's not THAT heavy.

      The bottom line, I love this set. I bring it backpacking with me every time I go out. I can use it to boil water for dehydrated meals (it pours very well), and I can also use it for actual COOKING! Which is great if you really want to be creative with your recipes and outdoor experience. The "pot grabber" as my friends and I have come to call it, works perfectly. I love using it over an open fire to preserve stove fuel.

      Again, if versatility is your goal, you will not regret getting this set.
