I’m a gourmet backpacker and I usually do take a pot, pan and even a portable outback oven on my multi-day trips. However, it doesn’t mean I carry a super-big and heavy backpack. With the right planning and packing, the weight of all my food and cooking gear won’t exceed 7 kilos for a 5-day trip.
The expedition I’m planning now is a bit different. I’ll need to spend 2 weeks in the wilderness without ability to resupply and I should be able to carry all my gear and food with me. I’ve started looking for a lightweight and compact solution for cooking that fits well with my stove system. I found that a GSI Outdoors Halulite 1.8L Boiler could be an ideal replacement for my existing cooking set.
The GSI Outdoors Halulite 1.8L Boiler is an ultra light pot, perfect for boiling water and/or cooking simple meals for one or two adventurers.
It’s made from hard-anodized aluminium, making it efficient, tough and durable. This material provides exceptionally fast and even heating, saving you both time and fuel on the trail.
Besides it’s supremely lightweight, Halulite boiler also resistant for scratches and burn circles. It’s very easy to clean too.
Pot has convenient folding handle that ensures easy transportation and compact storage inside of backpack.
The GSI Halulite 1.8L Boiler is a large enough to fit in a small fuel canister, 2 nesting bowls and an ignition system.
You can leave your measure cup at home. Both metric and imperial liquid measurements are indicated on the inside and outside of the pot.
