    I’m glad you reviewed the cook set.  My son and I have all the cookware we need for ourselves, but it looks like we may have a situation this summer where we have to cook for three, and maybe four people.  This will be a one and done situation, so buying cheap just makes sense.  I’d hate to pay a lot of money for a cook set that will never be used again.  The Outad set looks like the perfect contender.

    Good stuff Todd! Great video on the cookware and the sizes and weight to pick

  6. Stanislav Grymblat on September 16, 2019 at 6:34 pm

    Bought a similar aluminum cookset at Winco, maybe 8 years ago for around $12.
    not the most awesome, high-speed gear, but it’s light and durable.
    it’s served me pretty well.

  8. backyardmeat on September 16, 2019 at 6:35 pm

    …..hey wait a minute, you’re claiming you bring along a frying pan on fishing trips 🙂 I thought only morons did that…lol. Great review and we need to start talking spring dates too. Hope all is well Todd!

  9. Dany Barceloux on September 16, 2019 at 6:38 pm

    really good review sir

  10. Primal Outdoors - Camping and Photography on September 16, 2019 at 6:44 pm

    Looks like a nice little set, not really my style but still looked to be a good starter set.


  11. Scoutforlife on September 16, 2019 at 6:44 pm

    Enjoyed yre review. I love those mini kettles, use one a lot.works for me.

  12. Trenton Vet on September 16, 2019 at 6:45 pm

    Thank you for the video. I appreciate your opinion. I have an aluminum mess kit (cheap) that I don’t like. It’s hard to clean and too small. I carry a lot of instant potatoes and rice. As long as I have a pot big enough to cook a whole package I’m happy. I have a pot like your anodized aluminum non stick pot which has been working very well for me. Again thanks for the video and best of luck to you.

  13. James Ritchie on September 16, 2019 at 6:45 pm

    I just learned a trick about heat distribution that really seems to work, if you don’t mind a little  extra weight.  Carry a copper disk that’s almost as wide as your largest pot.   It should be thin copper, just thick enough to be more or less rigid. 

    Place the thin disk of copper on your stove, place your pot or pan or skillet  on it, and cook away.  The copper spreads the heat out and really seems to make a huge difference. 

    Nothing distributes heat better than copper, which Is why most very expensive pots, pans, and skillets have copper coated bottoms.

    The widest pot I have is five inches.  I also have a skillet that’s seven inches long and five inches wide.  The same five inch diameter 32ga. sheet of copper works well for both. 

    Honestly, copper a lot thinner would probably work as well or better, but I use what I already had.  I just had to cut it to sixe, and it takes tin snips to cut 32ga., at least for me.

  14. Nomad-76 on September 16, 2019 at 6:45 pm

    All sound advice, I love my Stanley Adventure cook-set (cheap & useful). Furthermore, the OUTAD cookware seems worth it for the price.

  15. THE WILD LIFE OV on September 16, 2019 at 6:47 pm

    What do you think of the cook pots that Solo Stove makes? I’ve got a Solo Stove Regular, and have been thinking of buying the matching pot.

  16. live4wild on September 16, 2019 at 6:48 pm

    Thanks Todd, I like the GSI and Stanley cup. I just bought MSR Titan Titanium pot 4oz. I like the kettle also. Hope you are doing well my friend..

  17. DanLeeMann on September 16, 2019 at 6:50 pm

    Looks well worth it but the things I e taken on countless camping and hiking trips are:
    6in pan
    Small spatula
    Fork and a spoon and a throwing knife repurposed for eating
    Steel cup
    Grill rack that stands on tent stakes
    And of course food

  18. dmkccR2ventureMade on September 16, 2019 at 6:51 pm

    That was very helpful! Thank you.

  19. Wandering the Wilderness on September 16, 2019 at 6:53 pm

    looks decent for $30. i agree with the extra junk they throw in. guess they try to add value by given you alot of junk. good review

  20. pack 242 on September 16, 2019 at 6:54 pm

    what about a small cast iron pan cheap at garage sales

  21. chloe jin on September 16, 2019 at 6:57 pm

    Nice review thx

  22. John Tewelow on September 16, 2019 at 6:57 pm

    Brother, I love cook kits. I think you saw the video I did on simple DIY. Upgrades for the Stanley pot. I’m pretty sure that’s the video the I met you from a comment on. I really like your compairison and the way you call em like you see em

  23. Dick Johnson on September 16, 2019 at 6:57 pm

    Who gives a shit about your opinion?

  24. Orlos The Druid on September 16, 2019 at 6:58 pm

    First time I ever decided to cook while fishing, I used a small bag of charcoal and a hubcap off my truck lined with foil to make eggs.

    EFF THAT!!

    Im getting a real cookset-up now. I have kids and they love to fish…so, Im gonna do it right, like this!

  25. Moran Guy on September 16, 2019 at 6:58 pm

    And by the way if you are using aluminum anodize you must use it with wood cookware or plastic to prevent scratches….

  26. spindrift 1 on September 16, 2019 at 7:00 pm

    are you playing the flute as well

  27. eXplorer on September 16, 2019 at 7:02 pm

    Excellent video! I love looking earth, discover and relax…

  28. Tim Kaldahl on September 16, 2019 at 7:03 pm

    I have the Stanley set, but my favorite cook set is an anodized GSI cook set that I bought 22 years ago. I may get one of these for my tear drop camper though.

  29. Moran Guy on September 16, 2019 at 7:04 pm

    Thanks for sharing this video with us….it is great!

  30. MountainRaider on September 16, 2019 at 7:07 pm

    Nice cookset and review!

  31. MCK on September 16, 2019 at 7:07 pm

    great info

  32. hcchang99 on September 16, 2019 at 7:09 pm

    I learned a lot thanks

  33. Aj Trebes on September 16, 2019 at 7:10 pm

    You should get one of those Mors bushpots. I really like mine.

  34. Common Sense Camper on September 16, 2019 at 7:14 pm

    All very good options!! you have a very set up for all kinds of different outings.

  35. James on September 16, 2019 at 7:16 pm

    Aluminum is NOT a good choice for cookware. There are serious proven health issues.

  36. MaddLagger on September 16, 2019 at 7:19 pm

    always nice to trade advice, ty

  37. jon cabral on September 16, 2019 at 7:19 pm

    Great vids as always. Keep up the great work brotha

  38. teton tom on September 16, 2019 at 7:19 pm

    ………. just had to go and remind me that I cracked the bottom out of my 15" cast iron skillet fish fryer. 70 yrs of combined use…..

  39. JHAYKHAY25 on September 16, 2019 at 7:20 pm

    Got a pot set almost the same as your’s for buttons, on sale at Wally World except no kettle. My personal review was almost exactly the same as yours, plastic stuff went except the spoon and the plastic at the end of the handles is not so great. I think on this subject you could take 100 survivalists/bush crafters/preppers and get 100 different preferences. At the moment I prefer a Crusader 2 canteen cup with a French army aluminium canteen cup, light, portable, tough and does the job. You did a great, honest review, subbed!!

  40. Dave Wilcox Jr Outdoors on September 16, 2019 at 7:20 pm

    Great video Todd… I am with you on your personal preference, I use the MSR Stainless set that you show in the left of the video!  I have used it the past couple of years and it gets knocked around a lot and still in decent shape!  Non stick is not something I look for with budget cookware!

  41. ronald ren on September 16, 2019 at 7:20 pm

    I prefer hallulite

  42. Central Oregon Survival Network on September 16, 2019 at 7:20 pm

    Everything is in the description block my friend!!

  43. ray aspa on September 16, 2019 at 7:21 pm

    A comment: I watch reviews of various products often and noticed that a reviewer will speak ill of budget equipment then toss the equipment around or into the dirt. However if the equipment is very high end it gets treated like the holy grail and the reviewer even has a special pouch or molle gear set up for it. Albeit kudos to all that review products, they save me tons of money which I have little of so Walmart Ozark trail gear works for me. Like he says it’s everyone’s preference. Anyways for what it’s worth.

  44. Kehoeklan on September 16, 2019 at 7:21 pm

    I have watched this video a couple of times and in May I will be going on my first back pack hiking trip and it is only for one night. My question is what set up do you use to cook your food. I am not sure if I want a solid or liquid system but you had a pretty good fire in your video. What system is that. Thank You.

  45. 701 OVERLAND on September 16, 2019 at 7:21 pm

    Nice demo … I do like the kit all in all, I am not all that big a fan of aluminum myself but it definitely is a nice setup for the price. I think for my Polaris Ranger kit this would make a nice addition for trail meal!

  46. Marsh Rat on September 16, 2019 at 7:21 pm

    Great vid.  Thanks for sharing.  I went thru a bunch of pots & pans before finding a configuration that works best for my personal taste and use.  Just way too many products out there to hit a home run right off the bat.

  47. anthony marino on September 16, 2019 at 7:24 pm

    thanks for the info

  48. Charles Chen on September 16, 2019 at 7:24 pm
  49. Jamie on September 16, 2019 at 7:25 pm

    The set I just got looks almost identical, but no kettle, and maybe a touch smaller (MelloMe) and $10 cheaper. I think I should have gotten something like this, looks like the big pot is larger, and a kettle is great to hang over a fire with a wire or spring pole.

    Did you ever get the plastic handles off? That’s what worries me the most. Using a canister stove right now so it’s not really an issue, but if that ever fails and I build a fire, I’d be afraid they would melt right off like you say. Makes me consider carrying locking pliers in my day pack, and I don’t want that extra weight!

  50. Arduous Ant on September 16, 2019 at 7:25 pm

    This is an awesome video, 😀 Im definatly subbing, i will try to visit your channel regularly from now on 😀 if you can do visit my channel! That would be awesome!! 😀 Until next time and keep up the great videos! Peace
