The Trail Lite Pot is light and strong with a hard-anodized finish, ideal for up to 2 people on a lightweight backpacking trip.
Light and strong thanks to its quality hard-anodized aluminum construction, the Trail Lite 1.3 Liter backpacking pot is a solid foundation to the cook kits of solo travelers. Offering the heat distribution of aluminum, and scratch-resistant durability, this pot is great for water-boiling and one-pot meals, whether you’re searching for solitude in the wilderness or linking up with a larger posse. Its compact shape and folding/locking handle help the pot fit easily in smaller packs, so you can move quickly to cover the miles.
The 1.3 Litre Trail Lite Pot from MSR is a great pot that is sized really well to fit a gas canister and a stove in with ease. I was able to get both versions of the Pocket Rocket & Pocket Rocket Deluxe in there with the lid closed and the handle folded over.
Speaking of the handle it is permanently attached, unlike the ‘Talon’ handle found on the ceramic range which can be detached and swapped between pots. The Trail lite handle is still very solid when in use and folds away easily when packed away.
As well as a cheaper handle than the ceramic range, the Trail lite pots don’t have a non-stick coating, this made clean-up a little more difficult but if you are just boiling water for your freeze-dried meals then this is a bit of a non-issue.
At almost half the price of the ceramic pot range, the Trail Lite range from MSR is a great deal for beginner backpackers, or someone just needing some new pots.
