Sea to Summit X-Kettle For Making Camp Coffee – Full Review and Overview

The lightweight collapsible Sea to Summit X-Kettle has been a game-changer for me with its size and ease of use. I now take this on every trip, and during my last trip, I only used the X-Kettle for all of my cooking.

How It Works

The Sea to Summit X-Kettle is a simple tea kettle that can be used for heating water or cooking. The collapsible kettle has handles, a lid, and is made of silicon.

The X-Kettle is designed to fit two collapsible mugs in the middle when being stored. The silicone material makes it easy to clean and helps it cool quickly. The kettle has a lightweight aluminum base, making the kettle ideal for backpacking.

The handles help with moving the X-Kettle while it’s hot and has a small spout to help with pouring water out.

What I Like About the Sea to Summit X-Kettle

The number one thing I like about the X-Kettle is how lightweight and packable it is, making it ideal for backpacking trips. It takes up little to no space and works like a breeze for heating water or for cooking small meals.

I am always looking for ways to simplify and cut down on the amount of gear I have when I am camping, making the size of the Sea to Summit X-Kettle perfect for just that. The X-Kettle lets me heat water for coffee, oatmeal, freeze-dried meals, and so much more. With the silicone, it’s super easy to clean and get on with my morning.

The plastic handles and lid are significant drawbacks for me. Though I haven’t had issues with either yet, I do know of it being a problem with this particular product. I try to be super careful with both to make sure I don’t cause any warping from exposure to heat.

I am guessing they went with plastic to help keep the weight of the X-Kettle to a minimum, but I would take a little heavier product for the peace of mind.

Final Thoughts

My final thoughts on the Sea to Summit X-Kettle is that it’s a hands-down excellent product. Sea to Summit makes award-winning gear, and they didn’t disappoint on the X-Kettle. Its the perfect addition to your gear collection for those who like to save space and weight as well as use easy-to-clean cookware. The handles and lid are the one area I would have liked to see a better solution, but so far I have not had any issues.
