I’ve swapped out a lot of items in my backpacking kit, but this has gone on with me on every backpacking trip since I bought it in 2008 or so. And other than the nice patina it’s gained over the years, it still performs exactly as it did when I bought it. Only complaint is that the handles often get very hot, so I have to use a wadded up bandana (not the safest option) to remove it from the stove sometimes.
