GSI Pinnacle Dualist Ultralight Cookset | Ultralight 2-person Cookset

THE BOTTOM LINE – The majority of backpackers out there pay more attention to the gear that we sleep on and under, than to the gadgets we cook with. But with the availability of some truly lightweight and functional kitchen systems, it can also be easy to become somewhat of a wilderness foodie. After all, if you don’t have to worry about minimizing the pots and pans in your pack to save weight, cooking a tasty and energizing backcountry meal because a breeze that you look forward to every time. Enter GSI’s Pinnacle Dualist Ultralight Cookset.

With a 1.8 liter pot, a strainer lid, 2 bowls, 2 mugs with sip-it lids, 2 tele-foons and a storage sack that doubles as a sink, the Pinnacle Dualist can easily be all the kitchen you need (minus a stove and fuel) to stay full and happy on everything from short overnights to extended month-long adventures. The teflon-coated aluminum pot is high quality, though will likely collect a series of small dents over time – unless you treat it delicately 100% of the time. You and your hiking partner will each have your own bowl, mug for tea & coffee and spork-like utensil for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It is even color-coded, so Steve has no excuses when he keeps reaching for your blue bowl.

RECOMMENDED FOR anyone who wants a simple, stacking and easy-to-use cookset capable of boiling enough water for 2 freeze-dried dinners at once, cooking fresh pasta and veggies over the flame, or just reheating your homemade veggie chili in a flash. The price doesn’t sting too bad either.
