    Stanley cook set for me minus one cup... key ring mod to replace the plastic pull on the lid.(not pictured, stock photo)

    I use mine pretty hard and it doesn't seem to be suffering any ill effects to this point. It always makes water bubble when it's filled up and put over something hot. I'd love to own some Ti stuff like a Heavy Cover Canteen but all I have are a Toak's long spoon and a spork. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. I always have trouble with the price when I consider buying Ti.

    My favorite mug is a clear lexan plastic one. In the first picture, you can see it next to a 1qt water bottle, under which it nests. IMG_5375.JPG

    And here is is full of tea.

    I also have a similar (not clear, but blue) that I cut the handle off, so it fits inside an Olicamp mug. That's part of the brew kit I take I on day hikes/hunting.

    Old school Aladdin brand mug I've been using for about 20 years. I've tried other vessels, but it's lightweight, is never too hot to hold to sip from, and insulates very well. Doesn't look bushcrafty, but it's been terrific for two decades and shows no sign of stopping.

    I have and use a couple of other cups/mugs, but this one sees more time in the woods than the rest of them put together.

    Nice, good idea to make it a multipurpose item. Does it work well? I might have to try...

    I've tried to love others, but these two are my favourites. They've been in the family about twenty years, and we've shared many adventure together, so they're the sentimental favourites. My green cup came with an old thermos that's long gone, and my 1986 French canteen cup belonged to a boyfriend from university. I ditched him and kept the cup. ;)

    Kleen Kanteen 40 oz wide mouth goes nearly everywhere with me, not just into the woods.

    I used to pair it with an Olicamp space saver mug, but now I leave that one in the work bag and take the larger Pathfinder nesting pot to camp.

    Well I don't get to the woods anymore, but I still drag a USGI canteen cup most everywhere I go. People have even quit staring at my favorite breakfast haunt, it beats Styrofoam!! joe

    18+ years of experimenting and being disappointed my vessele finally appeared thanks to an amazing adventurous GAW. He now goes every where i go and has not let me down even when i forgot the dog's bowl I didn't think twice about giving Hermes the cup while I used the canteen. I'm looking forward to many many adventures with him. Mr HC

    @Seeker what are you using for a lid on that Oli mug?

    The stanley lid fits the aluminum mug but not the stainless.

    Man thats highway robbery. Let me do some checking and see if I can help you out. I think, and it's been awhile, it was $42.00 at Welders Supply in Louisville.

    LOL... I'd forgotten about that. My Oli is the aluminum one... My lid I think is some sort of bottom from some kind of cardboard canister, but I've forgotten what kind. I just went through the cupboard til I found something close. It doesn't fit well, but keeps the heat in and dirt/bugs out. I just punched two holes in the middle of the top and put a piece of copper wire in for a handle. I did the same with the Olicamp mug; drilled two holes in the rim and made a copper wire bale.

    Thanks. I love the rucksack. The Bergan's carries better, but the German ruck is my winter hunting pack (can fit more snivel gear in it). I also like that mess kit for shorter trips. For a couple years, I had access to over 4000 acres, and did a lot of ATV trips and could carry the heavier stuff.

    I think the guy a three dog stove company makes custom lids for these cups. They were a good price and he sells bail kits.

    I know right. Small piece to boot. Any help would be great.

    I have a coffee pot I want to add a handle too, and suggestions on help. I was going to do a post this week.

    Very cool stuff. I use a lot of WWII GI gear from my reenacting days. Now that I don't reenact I find I get more German gear then I used to. Nice stuff. Which rucksack is that?

    Don't know exactly... something NATO/Bundeswehr from the 70s. I have two of them. One came almost new in plastic, with a slightly blue-ish tint, probably AF, with proper shoulder straps. The other is much more used, green, and had the Y-straps with belt hooks on the bottom edges, for wear with/over the German version of LBE. I use the newer one here in LA, and the older one is now my canoeing food pack, and lives at my parents house in NY (with my canoe and second set of gear.)

    Has anyone seen one of these in the wild:

    https://www.walmart.com/ip/Stainless-Steel-Sierra-Camper-s-Cup-16-Oz-Cup/41127476?wmlspartner=wmtlabs&adid=22222222222028682797&wmlspartner=wmtlabs&wl0=e&wl1=o&wl2=c&wl3=10363798014&wl4=kwd-1103065093476&wl12=41127476_10000001316&wl14=seirra cup rockies cup&veh=sem

    I've been looking for one of the mythical 'rockies' cups - the deeper version of the Sierra cup - for years.

    My go to mug is an old REI lexan clear mug. It looks like it should have a lid that fits it, but I've never had a lid work for it.

    Similar to this one, sans cracks:

    Finally ran across the pics I was looking for. The bag is roughly 3.5" x 5.5" x 6" tall, made of waxed cotton duck. It holds the contents shown and leaves room on top for a bagel. I've given up using the hot lips thing, and my spoon is now a shorter one from Subway. I've also ruined the handles on the Olicamp, and removed them. The bottle or can opener (either works) on my SAK serves well as a lever for pouring, while I hold the bail. IMG_0183.JPG

    Stanley cookset if traveling light, sometimes just one cup from it. I really like the cookset in every way for functionality.

    For less restricted baggage, I use a ceramic mug that looks like blue speckleware but doesn't burn my lips, and it goes with my coffee pot, cookware, plate, bowl and spoon (though I think the spoon is in somebody else's cook cabinet right now)....

    Right now it is my mors bushpot and toaks 750 ml with bail, but i think on going back to stainless for durability, the stanley was a close contender but the bottom is a little narrow and i keep spilling everything because of it. I do like it though and my toaks fits over it.

    I didn't think I would get so many great responses. It's really interesting to see the variety that everyone goes with. Mine is a wooden mug that got at the Muskogee RenFair 13 years ago.

    Green enamelware cup. This, a bamboo spoon, and an Esbit stove are the totality of my "cookset".

    I don't always use just one cup out there. I have a number of them which I rotate depending on kit size and loving to test new ones out. I had brought a back up SS cup too but this bad boy performed flawlessly during all of it's testing. I've since carried him on a few similar trips but I don't carry the back up now. :) Who 'da thunk it eh? My favorite aunt always told me that this was a great brand and she sure was right. God bless her soul. :14: lb

    Nothing fancy about Corningware dishes, but they sure are sturdy.

    My standard drinking vessel for the woods is this huge enamel tin cup that my son got for me when he was five years old. I have pretty big paws, so this thing really is big. Not the best for packing light, but it doubles as a nice soup bowl, and I don't have to make so many cups of coffee. 20180112_213800.jpg

    I am working on some coconut shells, hoping that one of them will become my new favorite cup. They are dry now, so I can start finishing them.

    I use a Toaks 450 almost exclusively since my wife bought it for Christmas about 4-5 years ago.

    I'm a minimalist in the eating gear. I have my Toaks cup, an enameled steel plate and bowl and two titanium sporks. When I'm done eating, I clean my stuff and put it away so it's ready for the next round. :)

    Everyone else will use a cup or glass or plate and when done just put it in the sink for washing. Then grab another and another. Pretty soon we have a sink full of dishes that need to be washed. I've tried explaining that if everyone used one plate, bowl, glass, etc. and then washed it and put it away when done, we'd never have a load of dirty dishes to do. Just the cooking pans.
