Have to admit that this pot/bowl set was an impulsive purchase when browsing the local outdoor retailer. While the set is acceptable, I should have spent a little more to get a better system. Problems with the Trail Lite Duo:
1. The pot holder is a snap-on design, basically a T stick that is held by an U attachment. However it is very easy to pull the stick out of the attachment if you are not careful or don't know how the joint works and try to force the matter. The problem with this thing is that it also works as the retainer of the lid. So basically you have to take it on and off at least twice when you use the pot. Once the stick is off, it is a pain to stick it back in.With only one weekend of use, the attachment is already coming loose. I can't imagine it last a year. MSR's Quick and Alpinist pots use a different mechanism that may work better.
2. The lid of the mug is difficult to use. It is not easy to open (which can be a good thing). When it opens, it keeps falling into the mug. I was doing this in summer without a glove one. It is most-likely not going to work well in winter.
