Cheaper and better

Over at Fenlander’s blog, he’s made a short video of the Evernew Solo cookset that backpackinglight.co.uk are now stocking. This is almost identical to the Snow Peak Solo cookset that I have been using over the past couple of years. However, it is cheaper (£49.99 vs. £58.95 @Snow + Rock for the Snow Peak) and it is a better design. Long handles on the large pot should help to avoid burnt fingers, which are a bit of an issue with the Snow Peak. Also the handle for the pot lid is a better design. Furthermore the large pot has volume markings, unlike the Snow Peak (although the small cup does have volume markings). All in all this looks like a better design to me. The question is: do I get one?

  1. Evernew are really producing some good stuff at the moment, well designed and superbly finished. Snow Peak had better watch out.

    I ordered the Evernew Small Pasta Pot. I don’t need a second mug and it comes with the volume markings (WHY is this minor detail missing off the Titan Kettle?!) and big handles that I like.

  2. I love this bit of kit, bit self is missing one key feature – the pouring spout!

    Great bit of kit though – but if you have the snowpeak you’re not missing out on much.
