Owning a sizable pot to cook delicious backcountry meals in: awesome. Devoting tons of packing space to said pot: less so. That’s why we gave the X Pot an Editors’ Choice Award in 2015; its ability to accordion down to a flat disc makes the conundrum of transporting cookware a thing of the past. The pot’s anodized aluminum bottom is good at conducting heat, and the silicone walls resist food sticking to them and are easy to clean. At just over a pound the X Pot isn’t ultralight, but its 4-liter volume is great for large groups, or two very hungry campers. Score it now for 25 percent off ($56.21) at Backcountry.com.
