Frequent campers and hikers will all agree when I say that carrying around proper cookware is a headache. After many days in the bush, that small can-sized cooking vessel on your camping stove can be very frustrating to work with.
If you want the luxury of larger sized cooking pots, but don’t want to sacrifice the weight and packing gains you get from smaller systems, the X-Pot by Sea to Summit might be just what you’re after.
Each pot is folds up onto itself into a flat form factor that can slide into your backpack with ease. It is manufactured from heat resistant silicone and aluminium, and can provide the even heat distribution and large cooking volume previously reserved for larger metal cooking sets.
There is also a range of collapsable plates, mugs and kettles. I’ve been using the collapsable mug for a few years now and I’ve been very happy with it.
Here’s a great demonstration from Backpacker Magazine.
