Julie -- re your question to Alex H about weight of the Open Country 2qt pot with both a lid and a handle, don't know if his Open Country 2qt has the same weight as the hard anodized aluminum Open Country 2qt pot that I have, but the weight of mine is 6.20 oz with its lid.
The pot handles I use add either 1.3 oz (aluminum pothandle like the one shown in Alex H's photo) or 1.0 oz (MSR pothandle with red handles) to the pot/lid weight.
Using the MSR pothandle, the pot/lid/handle combination totals 7.2 oz.
Note that Open Country makes at least two versions of the 2 qt pot -- the hard anodized version like I have, and a simple silver aluminum version that also comes with a bale.
I have the simple version also, and its weight including lid & bale is 7.39 oz. A separate pothandle isn't needed with the "simple" version since it has the bale for picking it up, as you can from the photo at the following link:
The "plain" version of the Open Country pot costs less than the hard anodized version (even at its current "on sale" price at Trail Designs' website), but I like the hard anodized version for use with Trail Designs' Caldera Sidewinder because it fits (no bale to get in the way), plus the hard-anodizing seems to make it a lot stronger.
Here's a link to a BPL review of that Sidewinder setup with an Antigravity Gear 2qt pot, which I believe is/was made by Open Country so that it's probably the same pot as sold at Trail Designs --
The Sidewinder for the 2qt pot also fits the Evernew/REI 1.3L Ti pot (w/minor accomodation re use of stakes), and the Sidewinder works with pots having a diameter smaller than the 2qt and 1.3L -- as described for an AGG 3 cup pot in the above review.
All of which brings up another consideration besides what kind of "cooking" your going to do (just boiling water vs actually cooking in the pot vs both) -- and that is what kind of stove you'll be using with the pot.
The 2 qt Open Country pot works great with a Sidewinder caldera stove, and everything can be packed away in the pot. But a different pot might better meet your needs if you're going to use a another kind of stove, especially if you don't need/want 2qt capacity.
