Not really, but sort of. I can only find the older pkg at REI with two pots that weighs the same. To some, it would truly be the same if not better for having two pots and more room. To others, significantly different. The New River pot appears to be mostly the same as the old bigger one, with a grooved, flatter bottom to prevent slippage and a clear lid top. They also raised the MSRP $10 so that the MassDrop price is fairly decent compared to what you're gonna get it for elsewhere (confirmed with a quick but not extensive google). Still, the stove is the same and weight of the package the same as the older pkg that is now discontinued, so if you have or want to wait to use your 20% at REI to make it $35.96, then yes, it seems like a better deal. Wouldn't be surprised if this makes it to the REI Outlet and might get even more off, though being discontinued means it could sell out before then.
Personally, I'd rather have this newer version, even if its $4 more. The stove is the bomb and I paid a little over $30 for it, so around $10 for a relatively light pot with clear lid that definitely fits cannister and stove is not bad at all.
