    For the stainless steel canteen. A little heavy but they are clean, tasteless and durable. These fit a tiny bit loose in the GI cup so I suggest getting the cup made for it, unless you like rattling with every step.

    Both cup styles - "L"-handle and buterfly handles - are available but not always from the same vendor. Canteen and cup run around $25 set. These fit into the GI cover.

    Here is a set:

    I also came across:

    I have had the Gott version for years and it is the best vacuum bottle I ever had. Keeps coffee drinkably hot for at least 8 hours, pour-thru stopper, cup included, 24 oz. capacity and fits into a standard canteen cover. Hurry, the bid will close in a day from 27APR2012.
    Thanks

    Miles, I have the same pot. I have removed all the plastic bits to use it over the fire.

    Also, I have a US Canteen and cup, a snowpeak titanium spork and a snowpeak insulated titanium mug.

    That's about it.

    I use a grease pot, no name stainless cup I've had for years, and a cheap hobo tool. I try to keep my gear simple, cheap and light.

    The other part of the British Mess Tins. The smaller rectangle pot sits inside the larger one for storage.

    How do you like the Brit. mess tins? I've been thinking of picking one of these kits up but in the pictues they always appear real flimsy like they wouldn't hold up.

    I like them alot! They are sturdy, in my opinion; much more so than my stainless Coleman Scout type mess kit.

    Great to see I'm not the only person likes the British issue mess tins. I got into using them for WWII Living History and have found them sturdy. The Post-WWII (Recent at least) Dutch mess tins are a direct copy of the British mess tins. I also like the German Mess Tin as well. I have always loved the US Canteen Cup, I like the older folding handle version over the never wire "butterfly" handle version.

    Been using a conglomeration of Coleman, Stanley and other miscellaneous stuff but just bought a Swiss army mess kit in the trade blanket to be my new goto kit :-)
