The Trangia spirit burner stoves are pretty legendary, at least here in Scandinavia. These have for a long time been the go to stove for hikers and the military alike. The Trangia is not a state of the art piece of high-tech cookware, but a simple and extremely reliable stove that is easy to use, versatile and very effective. Model 25 is the larger model, designed for cooking larger meals for more than one person. Hard anodized ultralight aluminium construction.

Mil-Tec Alcohol burner tripod

Mil-Tec Alcohol burner tripod

4.99 USD

A handy little stand for your Trangia, or Mil-Tec made copy, spirit burner.

The Czechoslovakian mess tin is a welcome change and a viable alternative to the traditional Germanic models. It's not even half bad! Even in the East Bloc trying something new was a possibility.

This Czechoslovakian kit is a kettle-like bowl (1,5 l) with a smaller one (1 l) inside, and a frying pan that doubles as a lid. Both bowls have a folding steel wire handle. The larger one also closes the whole package, and there are strap loops on two sides to attach it to your kit or belt.

Cooking is only a matter of using either bowl on a field stove with the frying pan as a lid, or just the pan as it is. The use is as simple as the construction.

Diameter 15 cm, height 8 cm, the inner piece is 13 x 7,5 cm.

Used Czech surplus

In used, but good serviceable condition. Apparently these have been washed before throwing them into storage, so you don't have to scrape off any borsch residue. We still recommend a decent washing before use. In some cases the lid fits really tight, but this can be adjusted by bending the bowl slightly to be closer to round.

Pienemmän kattilan sisään mahtuu hyvin taittoaterimet ja taittokuksa. Kattilan kantta/ paistinpannua varten kannattaa hommata trangian tai vastaavanlaiset pihdit.
Pakin painoksi vaaka näytti 605 g.

Loistava kapistus hintaisekseen. Huomasin että irroittamalla pienemmän kattilan kahvan saa sisälle mahtumaan 230g kaasupatruunan. Isomman kattilan kahva irtoaa helposti ottamalla taittokahvan molemmilta puolilta kiinni ja vetämällä toisistaan pois päin (pienen irtoaa samalla tavalla, joskin hieman vaikeammin..). Ison kattilan irroitettu kahva kiinnittyy helposti pienempään kattilaan. Tsekkiläinen olisi vielä voinut kanteen laittaa samanlaisen kiinnityksen niin ei tarvittis trangian pihtejä mukana kantaa.

Good solid mess kit in surprisingly clean shape for it's age (mine was stamped 1952). The inner pot is large enough to fit an Esbit stove without any issue. The strap loops on the sides are definitely under the 2.5cm mark, I know this because I bought this and four Belgian straps excitedly on impulse only to find that they didn't fit by a margin of millimeters. I knocked off a star because the lid does not sit flush or even on the whole system due to the joint on the inner lid handle being taller than the rest of the setup, but it's 60+ year old surplus, this isn't the kind of product that demands aesthetic perfection. Great buy all together, definitely consider keeping a bundled up stove/firestarter inside it (or other stuff) to save space when packing.

Update: it's actually surprising how much fits in here. Got fish cock, an esbit stove, tons of fuel, tea, matches, and a fire steel in this, an entire meal!

Ihastuin kerrasta, tämä pääsi heti ekan kerran jälkeen Esbitt-polttimen kanssa auton perään vartomaan maailman/matkan yllättävää loppua. Esbitt ja tulitikut ja jenkkien decontamination box mahtuivat sovittelemalla sisään, eikä tarvinnut edes irrotella kahvoja. ps. 3 tablettia keittää noin 0,5l vettä kun isompi kattila hoitaa tuulensuojausksen. Aikeeni kuitenkin on leikata säilyketölkin kylkeä mukaan hieman pikkukattilaa matalampi ja sitä vähän suuremmaksi c-kirjaimeksi taivutettu suojapelti, niin saan tarvittaessa molemmat kattilat käyttöön.

The wire handle on mine was very crooked, and the general feel of the kit is that it doesn't quite fit right together.
It is simply not worth 10 bucks

Nice little kit, all fits together snug, but not overbearing let tight. Had a little bit of food residue left on the inside, but that came off In a good washing. This is definitely a mainstay in my outdoor kit: simple to use and always going to be needed!
