Backpacking Cookware: Making It All Fit In Your Pack

Backpacking Cookware: Making It All Fit In Your Pack

March 15, 2022

Whether you’re an ultralight fastpacker or a mountaineer, space-saving is an essential part of your hobby. You need to pack your gear in the most efficient manner to ensure that it’s easy to find. One of the things you can save space in your backpack with is your cookware. Pots have plenty of empty space which can store unwieldy gear like mugs, utensils, stoves, and more.

Here’s how you can pack your cookware better:

Think about nesting

Consolidation is the way to go when you’ve got a mountain of gear to fit into your backpack. Nesting smaller objects inside the larger ones can reduce the overall volume of your gear, and a tighter system can help you eliminate any danglers outside of the pack. You can even opt for a lighter and smaller pack if you pack efficiently enough!

One of the most obvious places to store things is pots—they’re meant to hold food, after all. Try packing your fuel canister and stove together, and if there’s any room left, add your mug, coffee, food, utensils, lighter, and anything else that you might need.

Embrace multipurpose and folding gear

Besides packing your gear efficiently, invest in gear that’s already designed to be efficient. Foldable cooking gear can be expanded to gain access to its full functionality and compressed into a smaller, easier-to-pack form once you’re done.

Any of your gear that finds its way into your backpack needs to have multiple purposes since more functionality in each of your tools means that you’ll have to pack lesser items overall. You can even double your pot as a mug or a bowl, or get a narrower, taller pot that’s easier to slip into a smaller pack.

Individual pieces of nesting cook sets?

Whether you choose to piece together a kit of your own or go for a pre-assembled set depends on your needs. Piecing your own kit together will allow you to have complete control over the kit, so you can choose items based on your cooking goals and weight. Choosing efficiently engineered and compact gear is essential, and adventurers who like travelling light and fast tend to prefer this method.

Engineered cook sets tend to do most of the packing calculation, so you already know it’s going to fit just fine together. You can also fit in mugs, plates, and other items in your cook sets and are super easy to just grab and go during your last-minute packing frenzy.
