The MSR Titan Kettle’s titanium pot and lid provide outstanding performance for the weight and packed size. The 0.85 litre pot is large enough to accommodate a 250g gas cartridge and small enough to be used as a drinking cup. A spout makes pouring easier. But it’s just one pot and lid, so it’s not ideal for more ‘culinary’ cooks. The folding pan handles will get hot as they are not protected by rubber grips. It’s a high price for what you get.
Packed size 12x9cm

Verdict: The MSR Titan Kettle is the best in test for lightweight backpacking if you can get by with just one pot.
