The MSR Alpinist 2 System is a cook set for two hikers in the backcountry. The 2.4L hard anodized aluminum pot is durable, ready for boiling water and stores everything inside of it when it's time to pack up for the next camp. The strainer lid keeps everything from falling out during storage, with the Talon™ pot handle that folds over and secures the top. The two DeepDish™ plates are handy for oatmeal to spaghetti with color coding so you know which plate belongs to which hiker. The two double-wall insulated mugs feature lids to prevent your morning coffee from spilling as you go about breaking down camp.

FEATURES of the MSR Alpinist 2 System

  • Durable and Efficient: Hard anodized aluminum pot is strong, light and provides more even and efficient heat transfer than titanium
  • Compact: Efficient nesting design saves valuable space
  • Versatile: Also accommodates an additional insulated mug for a party of three, a stove, or leave something at home to save even more weight

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outdoors or indoors this system just works I've owned this system for 4-5 years (cant remember how long, like a marriage if you are having fun) and it has been great. It has also got my wife and I out of situation when we moved house and our belongings hadn't all arrived so not just used for camping, backpacking. The insulated cups work great, sometimes a little to great when you are in rush and what ever you are drinking feels hotter than the surface of the sun. However they also work pretty well for keeping you beer/wine/gin cold at the end of the day. Basically outdoors and indoors this system is great. The only bad thing is that lids for cups could do with being a little tighter in the cups.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light and versatile Picked this up cooking kit up prior to last season and got to take it out on several trips, including a couple of multi-day backpacking trips, a canoe overnight and some car camping. It has held up great. The ability to collapse the mugs and pans together helps maximize space, but it also allows you to leave behind whatever you don't need for a specific trip. If you ditch one of the mugs it will usually fit a Pocket Rocket stove and a small gas canister inside the pot with room for a few more small items. Haven't had any problems with heat distortion, scratches or dents. Everything has held up great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome 2 person Kit MSR Alpinist 2 has made a awesome replacement for my prior MSR Blacklight set. I have used it 6-8 times now and it makes for such a convenient kit. Coffee for two or soup cups, high rimmed plates for easy around the campfire meals, and easy clean-up with the non-stick finish. The cups keep beverages hot and insulate even better when the lids are snapped on. The measurement markings are easy to read when you need just the right amount of fluids for cooking. The new handle attachments are great for keeping things locked down during storage and give you a little more to grab then the clamp style previously used. Lids have built in strainer and with my XGK stove I can boil water pretty darn quick. I will always use MSR for my Camp Kitchen needs. Thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a reliable system 11 years ago I acquired a WhisperLite and brought it in a month trip to Patagonia. I also brought a small old pot that I'd been using for several years with butane stoves. The result is a hole in the bottom of the pot after a week. I used silver tape to fix it. It was fun but I decided I need a good pot for the next time, my choice was MSR Alpinist 2 because I thought it was a good idea to have a complete system with everything I would need. It's light and compact and you can store complementary cooking itens inside it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great All Around Cookset The MSR Alpinist 2 System is great for two while backpacking your favorite trails. I have used this set multiple times in the backcountry and it has yet to fail. The mugs keep coffee and tea warm and the plates hold ample food. I especially like how compact and lightweight the entire system is. For the price, you can't go wrong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for two We shopped around a lot for a camp cook set. The Alpinist 2 was just right for us, and a great value considering the quality. We wanted something light and durable that would last for years and so far this kit has not let us down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact I bought this set for when I backpack with my son. We love it, its big enough to cook a meal for both of us and compact enough to not take up a ton of room. They clean up really easy also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light and strong! I bought it for hiking, yet I carry it on my motorcycle and it can hold the ride and all the bumps of the trip without been harmed. Easy to carry, compact and works great on the stove.
