What pot do you use in deep winter? When I use my 2 qt pot to boil extra water (or melt snow), I can only fill it about 1-1/2 qt, then I spill 1/2 qt trying to fill the Nalgene.
I tried to bend a pour spout, but it dribbles and leaks all over anyway.
I'm using the Open Country 2qt alum because it's cheap enough, and has a bail handle to use in a fire. I just can't stick my Ti pots in the fire.

Does anyone have a killer winter 2L cook pot, cheap, light, with bail handle(for fire) and pour spout?
Or, does anyone have a good process for shaping a pour spout that works?
Thanks!!

If you carry a hose for anything (water filter pump, drinking from a water bladder), you could use the hose to create a siphon.

I think it's called the MSR titan, it's a simple Ti pot with pour spout, nothing fancy, that and the Jetboil Sol Ti, that does not have a spout but have not had any problems pouring it + the lid does have a something to help pour, and even though it looks not safe, I never had the lid pop off when using it this way.

For winter use have you considered a Kelly or Ghillie kettle? Solid fuels are still available dry enough in most forests during winters.

http://toaksoutdoor.com/potwithbailhandle.aspx the only ones i've found in 10 years with the top bail on a Ti pot. I used to build cord/stick tripods and cook with my 2L aluminum open country pot. But I've finally settled on a toaks 550 cup for my solo use, and if i use it on the fire i just work it low around the sides...

you could make an aluminum foil funnel that weighs "nothing"

The GSI microduelist is what I use and it has a built in spout on the lid. About $40 but it imcludes 2 sporks, 2 bowls and 2 cups plus a stove bag. Mine is the hallulite model. Great for 2 people. They also have a soloist which is smaller and meant for 1 person.

Totally agree. Its the GSI kettle.

Yeah, I have the little GSI kettle. I love it on the home stove for 1 cup of tea. It's just too small for melting snow and not quite right for nesting stuff inside. The anodized aluminum is the best. My cheap, Open Country alum pot got tons of scary black deposits inside from just boiling water. Can you say Alzheimer's Disease?

I looked at the Mors 1.8l pot on-line. It looks like "the Bomb" (do we still say that?). I like the size and shape, and the handles plus bail are great. But at 12oz. seems a little heavy. Is it really worth $38, and can you tell me the inside diameter?
