Great cups, a snazzy system, but I too noticed that the lids are a bit brittle. Dropped a cup and the top chipped. It is still perfectly usable, but I wonder if they will become more brittle as they age? Having said that, I don't really care that the tops might chip. I have a ton of these and use them all the time. They are easy to clean, everyone gets their own color (a nice bonus), and four of them fit neatly into my Primus 2.1L ETAPower pot... Perfect! Recommended.
The only gripe I have about this set is the lid on the mug seems brittle. Both of these together fit inside my cookset and I have plenty of room for my utensils, salt 'n pepper, and my pocket rocket stove. The mug keeps liquids hot or cold very well. The bowl is a triangle shape which is odd at first but works well. Overall a great product from GSI.
I bought both the 14 oz. and 20 oz. versions knowing that the 14 oz. size would not work well as a bowl. Having both sizes allows two people to have both a 14 oz. mug and a 20 oz. bowl. Whoever does all the cooking gets the lid so their drink/food stays hot.
THey fit nice in your hand and keep the liquid flowing nicely and evenly. The one vice I have with it is while inside my bugaboo cook set I guess I dropped the whole cookset and now I have a dent in my pot and one of my cups broke on the bottom
These are really light weight and it is great being able to nest your cup and bowl. It was a little weird getting used to a triangular bowl - but it works. The cups are really convenient and keep you tea/coffee hot!
love the insulated sleeve and lid, keeps coffee/tea/soup warm and the bugs out! the bowel also worked out really great for catching bait.
backcountry should consider pulling this from the line-up; got this today with my larger order -- regular customer here -- LOVE 99% of the stuff I get -- but this one was a disappointment. the lid was so loose it would not be safe to drink hot liquid from -- quality overall disappointing. I decided not to return it cuz of the time and energy of returning a $9 dollar item -- but expected more and likely will use as a pencil holder!
Great idea, poor execution.
Lids are made from inappropriate type of / poor quality plastic. Either the corners will chip off or the lids will warp within the first few uses. Or both.
If you try calling GSI to get replacements, don't expect polite, professional customer service. Instead you can expect a rude interrogation about how, when, why, where, the temperature, time of day, your blood type, etc... when the lids broke.
I think I'll stick with MSR from now on.
These are clever little nesting cups/bowls for camping. The insulation is handy for drinking hot coffee in the morning and eliminates the need for a bulky handle. The big problem we had was that some of the plastic chipped off of the top on its inaugural camping trip, leaving a sharp edge and making the lid not fit properly. I expect camping products, especially from GSI, to be much more durable.
