Likes: Great quality and very compact.

Likes: Nice compact design with all items nesting in the largest 5.3L pot and lid. The 5.3L pot does not have non-stick coating like the 3.2L pot. Insulated mugs are decent size and work great for liquid meals (soups / stews) or hot beverages. They keep the content warm for a long time if you keep the lids on. Deep dishes are of 2 sizes so that they fit with the system. The pot handle for the 3.2L pot is made of metal / plastic and the 5.3L pot’s handles are metal (aluminum) with a plastic cover for insulation. The 3.2L pot handle is removable. That being said, I would not use these pots on a campfire unless you could really control the heat. Over all system worked well for our use.
Dislikes: At $159 MSRP, these are pricey. Pots are thin (obviously for weight savings), so you have to keep that in mind when packing them (easy to dent and scratch). Also, I find that the 5.3L pot it too big for 4 people. In the future I’m considering leaving the 5.3L pot and lid behind and replacing it with a skillet. We used this on a few multi-day trips so far and they have held up well. Durability of the non-stick coating and pots are a concern, but if used properly (use wooden / non-scratch cooking utensils), should be OK. Lid for the 3.2 L pot’s handle gets smashed when assembled.
The MSR Dragonfly is the premier multi-fuel stove with unprecedented flame control making it great for simmering sauces or melting snow.
Weighing less than an ounce, the MSR MugMate Coffee/Tea Filter allows caffeine fans to get their fix in the backcountry. Designed to work with most any mug or cup, the low-profile, reusable MugMate lets you enjoy a cup of your favorite brew anywhere.
Zoomify would go here, or a larger image... This is a temporary placeholder... The settup of this may change depending on whether we are in fact using Zoomify.
Rotate SWF would go here... Greg will reconfigure this after we have an actual example. This is just a place holder.
