Sea to Summit X-Pot

Postby ConnieD » Tue May 12, 2015 2:37 pm

This is an inquiry about the Sea To Summit X-Pot?

It is silicone. It collapses flat. The capacity: 2.8 liters.

It has a polycarbonate lid.

The bottom is aluminum: they say can boil water or cook.

Does anyone have experience with the Sea to Summit X-Pot?

It's interesting to see they added an aluminum bottom to the containers for boiling. Wonder how they got it to stick :?

Okay, are we going to see it in your next video?

Let's see, optimum flame? Keep it all on the bottom surface.

Here is what BACKPACKER Mag has to say about it:

2015 Editors’ Choice: Sea to Summit X-Pot How’s this for a magic trick? Turn a 1-inch-tall disk into a 2.8-liter pot with the flick of your wrist. It’s easy with the X-Pot, which has silicone walls that fold in on themselves, shrinking the pot down from 4.5 inches tall. The innovation solves the main problem with cookware: Pots are bulky and cumbersome. But shrinking isn’t the X-Pot’s only talent. We found the flexible walls easy to scrape clean, and the hard-anodized aluminum base shed even a layer of caked-on scrambled brownie. It’s a bit heavier than an all-aluminum pot, and you need to take care not to expose the silicone to direct flame (simply avoid the campfire), but those are minor compromises for the ease of packing what’s usually our kit’s most awkward item - See more at: http://www.backpacker.com/gear/cookware ...
