Why We Chose The Primus Trek Pot Set: Compact design, durable, convenient
What we have here is a pot set that’s as convenient and packable as they come. Featuring a 1L pot, a 0.6L one with a lid, a mini frying pan and a mesh sack and three handles. All-in-all the set weighs a very decent 410g.
Who Is the Primus Trek Pot Set For?
This set is absolutely spot on for anyone who likes a more intricate meal when they’re camping and want to get a few things on the go. You could, for instance, cook some spaghetti in the 1L pot, whisk an egg in the 0.6L and fry some bacon in the frying pan and voila you’ve got yourself some camp cooked carbonara.
What about something for the gram-counting lightweight hikers? It would probably be a little overkill for anyone who’s content with carrying just a tiny pot to boil water for a freeze fried meal, but still, 410g certainly isn’t intolerable or inconvenient. More on this in the Tester’s Verdict from Will further down.
This is a very well thought-out set. Ultimate convenience and packability seems to be what Primus were aiming for when they designed it. To start with, the whole set packs into itself like a Russian doll, with one of the handles then doubling as a lock that keeps it all held closed, and you can even fit a small stove like a Primus Firestick or Microntrail AND a small gas canister inside for even more packing efficiency.
Handily, the smaller pot comes with a little mesh sack which will stop it from clanging around and driving you mad. Packed up, the whole set is 145mm in height and 145mm in diameter. To put that into perspective, it’s about the same size as a small to medium flower pot, or a small biscuit tin. If that’s any help…
