Unbelieveable thing consisting of canteen, cup and a two-piece mess tin. Good stuff for good price if you are not in a hurry, or if evil stuff is your thing.

Serbian surplus, this was originally taken into service by the Yugoslavian army, and indeed taking the pieces apart is as difficult and painful as was dividing the country that originally made it. Our guess is that these continued to be used by the Serbs because after a quick drinking pause every soldier was frustrated enough to make atrocities without anybody specifically telling them to.

As usual, the designer had good intentions and no field experience at all. It's a bit like russian grandmothers - inside of which there is another grandmother, inside of which there is another grandmother - but different.

  • First up is the two-piece mess kit thing. On some specimen these are extremly hard to open. If you manage to do it, you can attach the plastic part on the handle of the metal part, which is almost convenient.
  • Inside the mess kit comes finally the canteen, a very basic plastic thing holding a litre or a little less. There is inscription on the thing which no human can read, but we think it is a warning against putting water into the canteen.
  • On top of the canteen you get a cup which might seem useless, but is originally meant to hold eyeballs. It also has warnings not to use water on it.

Truth be told, these are god-awful if you want a simple canteen from which to drink while on the move, but as a camping dishware set these aren't bad for the price. The metal part of the mess kit can be used for cooking too.

These have been used in a genocide, so whatever dings and scratches these have, they happened in situations you cannot forget even in your sleep. They still do their job, though.

On, 4,5/5, suosittelen.
Itellä pakki oli aterimineen ihan priimakunnossa, sisälsi (tuntemattomalla kielellä) kirjoitetut käyttöohjeet ja kaikki. Veitsessä oli hieman purkinavaajan takana ruostetta, mutta se lähti taikasientä vilauttamalla. Haju oli myös aika pikantti yli 20 vuotta ilmeisesti aika kosteassa kestäneen säilytyksen vuoksi, mutta kun vietät metässä 7 päivää putkeen ei tämä pakki enää yllättäen olekaan se pahahajuisin tuote joka repertuaaristasi löytyy.

Videosta päätellen näissä pakeissa on ollut tyyppivikana pieniluontoista tiukkuutta, mutta tiedä oliko tämä pakki sitten jo korkattu vai mitä kun syöntiastia luiskahti nätisti pois tuli-neitsyen pakin päältä kuin... karhentamaton turtana(?).
Tuleen en pakkia sijoittanut vieläkään, joten pakki säilytti poikuutensa. Ruoka-astia oli oikein loistava kuivamuonan mättämiseen. Pakkia käytin lähinnä kahvin juomiseen (en suosittele, kahvi jäähtyy haipakkaa mutta pakin alumiinireunat pysyvät kuumina) ja keittojen syömiseen. Juoma-astia oli mielestäni suhtkoht turha, vaikkakin juotinkin siitä kahveja kaverille. Sillekkin on siis käyttöä jos ajattelit kutsua kavereita kylään mehtään, muuten suosittelen tämän jättämistä kotiin ja kantamaan vaikkapa kuksaa mukana sen sijaan. Kenttäpullo on mukavasti sen 1 litran, siitä riittää kyllä purolta purolle ellet vallan intoudu ryyppäämään.
Aterimista ei voi kyllä muuta sanoa kuin hattua nostaa, hienosti Serbian teurastajat ovat nämä suunnitelleet. Veitseen tehty purkinavaaja päihitti jopa Saksapadon vastaavan!

Kaikki tämä kulkee pisteestä A pisteeseen G mukavasti vyöllä kangaspussissa, joka muuten onkin se pahin vihollisesi kun haluat juoda nopeasti muunkin seurueen pysähtyessä juomaan. Okei, voisihan tämä nopeampikin olla käyttää, siitä se yksi 0,5/5 pois. Kuitenkin yhdistettynä puolalaiseen leopardiperunasäkkitaistelumaksimusreppuun toimi tämä combo hienosti 9 päivän vaelluksen ajan. Ei ainakaan hinta hirvitä.

Vielä sananen tuosta vedenlaittokiellosta, "Ne drzati na vatri". Itseäkin vähän hirvitti kun hart sportit loppuivat kesken, että mitäs tähän kenttäpulloon nyt sitten laitetaan? Vettä ei saa laittaa, eikä näin hienoa ja kallista pulloa kehtaisi pilatakkaan, tai mitä nyt tuo vesi tälle oikeastaan tekisikään? Otin kuitenkin itseäni kepeksistä kiinni ja mietin, että kerran se vain kirpaisee. Upotin pullon (suhtkoht) itsevarmasti järveen ja annoin sen pulputa täyteen tuota luonnon proteiinivettä (järvestä vettä juoneet tietää). Ihmetyksekseni pullo ei ollut moksiskaan! Vesi pysyi pullossa, housut jalassa ja sitä rataa. Mietin että mitä peliä. Kylillä rupesikin liikkumaan huhuja, että tuo vesikielto onkin itseasiassa tuleenlaittokielto. Tätä suorastaan salaliittomaista teoriaa tuki se, että tämä kielto löytyi vain muoviastioista, ei ainoasta metalliosasta aterinten lisäksi eli pakista. Hölynpölyä, sanon minä. Ei kai kylillä kukaan puhu tuntematonta kieltä? Kyllä jugoslavialaisten siviilien kyyneleillä pinnoitetut laadukkaat ja ilmeisen käyttämättömät muovituotteet nyt yhdet liekit kestävät.


Pakitta et metässä selviä,
virta sun mukanaan vie
Jos ei JNA kelpaa voit katella Saksapadon helmiä
miehille se on kuitenkin C'est la vie.

Varusteleka you inbred cletuses. This was Easy AF to open. On a more serious note though, i am pretty stoked with this, quality was way higher than expected. The pot feels sturdier than most, and the cutlery is nice and big. The knife even has an actual ground edge! granted, not very sharp, but still pretty amazing. The markings in serbian (?!) are a nice touch and mine even came with some previous owner scribblings which was pretty cool.
If i had to nitpick on something it would be the canteen, plastic doesnt seem the best and it has a pretty small mouth.
Also i wouldn't use the pouch, but that's okay because, as i found out to my deepest of joys, this fits (albeit tightly) in osprey MTP canteen pouches! :DD
But realistically, this is a very complete, compact and high quality camping set for a price that's tough to beat and an interesting backstory to boot. Only regret was not getting more, hope you restock.

Update 05/09/2017:
Don't know how I missed this until now, but on the plastic drinking cup there are some notches deliberately carved, "counting my casualties style". I'm getting spooked, Varusteleka, please help.

Omani mukana tuli aterimet. Pakki haisee paskalle ja sinne juomapulloon laitettava vesi tulee myös paskanmakuisena pois. Omaani oli käyttänyt "N.B"(Niko Bellic?)

These are Great! While mine is (as promised) frustrating to get unlatched, I simply don’t latch the top, which is an easy fix for the problem. Other than that, this kit is everything you might need while camping, from silverware to a water bottle to a cooking pot. Grab one!

It’s really cool and compact, comes with all things pictured and in pretty good nick. My gf says the writing on the plastic cups is for ‘dumb soldiers’, and that it tells them not to use the plastic items over a fire.....
All up it’s a great kit and you should buy one if they’re in stock!

Ostin tämän muutama vuosi sitten, tosin suomenkielisenä. Nyt kerrotte, että Mainonnan Eettisen Neuvoston, myöhemmin MEN, mielestä tuote on englanninkielisenä hankittuna epäeettinen. Miten pystyn metsässä ollessani samalle nuotiolle mahdollisesti tulevalle MEN jäsenelle toteen näyttämään, että pakkini kaikkine lisukkeineen ei ole epäeettinen, koska se ei ole hankintatavaltaan epäeettinen vaan vähemmän epäeettinen, mahdollisesti jopa eettinen? Auttakaa nyt.

This is the most underrated item on this whole website. It is a bit heavy and cumbersome, but if you already have another water carrier and want a simple cookset and some spare water, or even just keep the pot and pan and fill the inside with extra food and a Esbit stove, this is an amazingly kit! Wouldn't recommend drinking from the canteen unless you like European mould in your body, but everything else is fantastic!

I don't know if Varusteleka received a bad batch of them, but the one I got from another seller is perfectly fine with absolutely no difficulty opening whatsoever.
This mess kit is really ingenious for how much it fits into a relatively small package. It's perhaps not the greatest of ideas to hide away the canteen and force you to open up your mess kit to get to your water, but we can't all be perfect.
Be sure to use some elbow grease and clean the shit out of it, in my case the plastic cups had some decade old grime on the outer grooves. My canteen has a bit of a funky smell to it even after I tried washing it out, I still need to test if that smell ends up in the taste of the water by letting it sit in there for a while, it may also be that I didn't clean it thoroughly enough but it's a bit hard to do with the narrow opening. Another particularity which may only apply to mine is that the cap to open the canteen squeeks when opening or closing it when it's dry.

The biggest downside to this kit however is that it's aluminium, being that aluminium has been linked to potentially cause Alzheimer's later on in life, but I doubt light usage would affect that compared to say using it multiple times a day for years like the original owners might have.

The design in funky,the smell is funky. I really love it. The smell persists even though I boiled everything in water with vinegar and I left them outside for a few days. Now,the design in very interesting,althoung it's a bit heavy,yet really nice. Mine opens and xloses really easely. The only problem I had is that the canteen cap has a small retainer attached to the bottle and mine came already broken and the canteen leaks a tiny bit. But I mean ,hey...what do you expect from some Yugo space magic. It's really something cool and funky to own. Oh and let's not forget the weird stuff written on it by the former owners
