Optimus's Terra Solo Cookset is a perfect sized set of pans for a solo backpacker. The frypan is a bonus and would do nicely for some fried onions or an egg in the morning. This kit is designed to nest a small gas canister, micro stove and a compact spork inside.
Ultra light 0.6L hard- anodized aluminium cookset with fry pan and mesh bag. Pour spout and measuring marks on pot. 110 g gas canister Crux/Crux Lite and folding spork all fit inside.
If you are looking for a robust solo cookset that is just big enough for one person then this Optimus set could be for you. When considering the weight remember these weights include the handles as well (you would have to add in the weight of a potlifter with other sets).
The fry pan will take an egg and not much more it could be left at home and a lighter alternative lid for the bigger pan made from foil but on the other hand its a handy size and you can fry some sausages in the frypan while boiling up water in the other. The main pan itself only weighs 116g.
We like the Optimus attention to detail the insulated handles graduated pot spout the size being just right for packing gas canister and stove inside etc...
