I am preparing for about a week of field work for three of us. Our cook kit will consist of a military surplus cook set, vintage 1951 - a two quart aluminum pot with stainless steel frying pan/lid - augmented with a few odds and ends.

It has been my fav on many group backpacking trips for more than fifty years...

Titanium in interesting material,but its cost is often not justified, depending upon the application..

That is one heck of a pot. It better be a "pot of gold" for that cost!

I'm too cheap for that. I'm more of an aluminum (or stainless steel) type of guy.

The Evernew pot works well with a Keith Titanium hanging chain.

I keep the pot stored in its storage bag with the Keith Double Walled Titanium Bowl.

The bowl keeps the Porridge warmer for longer!

I also AGREE with Byrd Hunter +1

I use a titanium pot for my billy. It works OK.
I think the whole "titanium" thing is overdone. A basic billy works fine, and it doesn't have to be exotic. It's definitely an essential item.

I guess we're all Hobo's now !!

Ultralight, cheap, the opposite of snobby, but a little fragile. I replaced the knob with a lower profile one and added a thin copper wire bail. It fits nicely inside my larger 2 quart pot when I go out in winter or other wise need two pots.

So, whatever happened to Sierra cups?

And that makes #4,000 for me laugh

Sierra cups have been overtaken to a large extent by better technology, as well as the declining practice of dipping a cup into "pristine" mountain springs and streams.

I have a setup in which a Sierra cup (with folding handle))contains a small esbit holder, some cubes, matches, and the ever essential tea bags - nice and light and guarantees that nice cup of tea wherever.

The vertical walled units that fit around a Nalgene water container are actually more practical and they make perfectly fine tea as well.

Plenty of S. cups available from REI and other suppliers.

I'm EDCing a tiny "pot" in the front pocket of my jacket/sport coat. It's a cut off at the top 8 oz SS hip flask with holes for a bail. Prying the concave side out I can extend its volume to ~12 oz. It takes virtually no space in the pocket, as it protects my power bank and its integrated solar panel riding inside (as well as the disposable rain poncho, AC/USB adapter, and mini/micro USB cable). It's kinda heavy though, but I'm used to that.

I'm solo camping/backpacking with SnowPeak Trek 700 Ti mug with another smaller steel mug with DIY folding wire handles fitting snugly inside. It's good to have one for a hot tea/cocoa/coffee drink, another for cooking - very compact, fits alcohol stove with the fuel and windscreen inside or the SnowPeak GigaPower burner with the small canister fitting perfectly over the lid, and seems totally adequate for all I need.

If bugging out by the car/bicycles/evac transport, I plan to grab my new All American pressure canner with me. Should be great as a 15 quart family sized cooking pot or skillet, can be used to make a desalinator, medical sterilizer, steam generator, etc. Also, pressure cooking saves fuel, nutrients, and treats food/water properly at high elevation. It may be rigged as a bear proof container hiding the edibles' smell.

I don't like thin aluminum pots, as they are easily getting dented and scratched, and then attracts sooth and other dirt, which is hard to cleanup without shaving off some wall thickness.
