What's wrong with packing a normal pot? Stuff it with a stove and/or whatever else fits inside. It works as a good organizer. Also, I will bet a normal pot will boil faster and cook more evenly.

It appears that the pot is just for boiling water only and it doesn't come any smaller than 1.4 L. Nice concept though but compare the X Pot to the Evernew titanium pot: (Vol: 1.3 L, dimensions: 6.25x3.5, weight: 4.6 oz) vs the X Pot (Vol: 1.4L, dimensions: 7.5x2.5, weight: 9 oz).

I use a 0.6 L titanium pot where my trangia stove fits perfectly inside.

What are you using as a stand for your burner?


Happy Trails

Well, the stoves don't always fit nicely into a pot, sometimes there's too much room in one dimension, and not in the other. But yeah, it's pretty unlikely it cooks as fast as a completely metal pot.

We just got back from paddling the Broken Group and one of our group had this pot. I am definitely heading down to REI to pick one up. It worked great and I loved how it packed down for the paddling kitchen. I know I'll be using it for backpacking too. Very light. They had no issues with it whether they were boiling water or simmering. They used it on their MSR stove.

Cheers!
