A combination of an aluminium mess tin and an alcohol stove. Perhaps not a state of the art plasma-cooker from outer space, but virtually indestructible, affordable and very effective. The mess tin is new production, made by Mil-Tec, rest is Swedish army surplus.

Fits snugly into the Särmä TST Large general purpose pouch, which you can attach on the side of your rucksack for quick access. After all, the first thing you do when you stop is prepare hot water for food and coffee.

Included:

  • Aluminium Swedish style mess tin
  • Mess tin holder
  • Burner cup
  • Plastic fuel bottle

The small accessories pack into the mess tin and the holder slides over it. The cooking process is very simple and the system is quick to set up:

  • Take the mess tin out of the holder
  • Inside the holder there are two metal wire thingies. Open these so that when you put the mess tin back into the holder, the tin won't go all the way down. Don't put the tin in just yet.
  • Take the burner cup out of the mess tin, unscrew the cap, pour in some fuel, place it on the bottom of the holder (under the wire thingies) and light it by holding a burning match over it.
  • Put whatever you want to cook into the mess tin and slide it into the holder over the burner cup. The wire thingies should hold the mess tin over the burner.

If the instructions seem hard to understand, don't worry - when you get the product, you'll be able to figure all this by yourself. If not, you should not have been allowed to play with fire to begin with.

Further instructions:

  • This is an alcohol cooker. Few countries sell pure alcohol for normal people, but there are lots of denaturated sorts made exactly for this use. We recommend either Marinol or Sinol. Marinol has a more neutral odor, but Sinol is available from us.
  • NO FUEL IS INCLUDED - the small, EMPTY plastic bottle is for your convenience as normally fuel is sold in unwieldly big containers. It's up to you to fill it.
  • The burner cup and fuel bottle are meant to be transported inside the mess tin. It's a good idea to put them into a small resealable plastic bag before putting them into the tin, as denaturated alcohol will make your food taste real bad, and it's a nuisance to get it off.
  • Always use the lid when cooking things. Makes stuff cook much faster and keeps you from looking like a dolt.

The wire handle has a small notch on the top to facilitate hanging the mess kit over a campfire, for example.

Note! The mess tin handle gets very hot when cooking! It's also missing the loops normally used for extending the handle with a stick. However the loop tunnels are there, you can just fashion the loops from suitable wire for example.

The cooker parts - the cooking frame, burner thing and fuel bottle, are used Swedish surplus and most likely made by Trangia. The mess tin is new production and very likely made in China.

Jos olet tottunut Trangiaan, tämä vaatii totuttelua, kahvaa ja kantta voi tulla ikävä jossain vaiheessa. Mutta kun tiedostaa asian, että tämä ei ole Trangia, homma alkaa sujua. Yksinäiselle taistelijalle ihan oiva valinta, tosin polttimelle ja pullolle kannattaa kehittää joku suojapussi.

Poltin on hieman erilainen kuin Trangiassa, säätörinkulaa ei ole ja purnukka on sangen syvä. Jos lirautat vain pienen määrän polttonestettä, sytyttäminen voi olla hankalaa ellet sitten perinteisesti droppaa tikkua polttimeen. Poltin näyttää siltä, että se tulisi asettaa johonkin samalla tavalla kuin Trangiassa, mutta ei. Sytytä poltin ja aseta alakehikko vasta sitten paikalleen, sen jälkeen pakin alaosa tulille. Pakin kantta voi (yrittää) käyttää kantena. Ja muista kääntää kahva sille puolelle missä ei ole alakehikossa reikää, muuten liekki kuumentaa sen kahvan tulikuumaksi. Sullahan ei ollut sitä Trangiasta tuttua kahvaa.

Trangia on oikeasti hieno peli, mutta sellaista ei saa 25 eurolla, se vie enemmän tilaa ja tarvitset erillisen ruokailukipon (ehkä). Trangia menee ehkä just vielä kolmelle, mut tää sopii yhdelle tai kahdelle. Pakkia voi tietysti käyttää myös erikseen ilman poltinta.

Got one and also got one with stainless swedish mess kit which I prefer, but any/most mess kits will fit.
The plastic bottle holds enough fuel for 2 refills and with that and a full burner you should have enough fuel to boil almost 10 liters of water, mmm... soup.
Or you could just stuff in twigs, cones and what you find and you have a multifuel stove.

Oikein toimiva konsepti!
Pakillinen vettä lämpiää hyvässä ajassa (en piruuttanikaan katsonut kelloa paljon meni). Pakki ja keitin kulkee mukavassa paketissa. Itselläni mil-tecin vai Tasmanian Tigerin cantteen-pouchissa.
Suosittelen.
PS. Itse korvasin tuon alumiinipöntön ruotsin armeijan rosteripakilla. Miksi näin tein, kannattaa tutustua mitä alumiini on.

Joskus kauan sitten omistin tällaisen ja trangian yhtaikaa. Metsään porukalla seikkailemaan lähtiessä tuli pakattua yleensä trangia, mutta kun lähdin yksin eräilemään tai fillaroimaan, oli tällainen ehdoton valinta. Palaa säässä kuin säässä, on kevyempi yksin kantaa, polttoaineeksi käy 80% ulkomaantuliainen ja sopi sievästi fillarin tarakan kylkeen, halvan ja omituisen näköisenä ei ollut tarvetta kätkeä rosvoilta. Johonkin on kuitenkin joutunut vuosien saatossa...

This is an awesome combo!
Beats the modern trianga by miles.
Not many kits have hanging pots.

The only minor flaw is the missing wire hook on the bale. You position the hook on the second notch off center and then rotate into the D ring. If you are using the Trangia burner this keeps it cool and rigid for lifting off and pouring into the smaller lid or a mug. This is easily fabricated. Compared to the now rare original unit's price when available this is an outstanding kit for the price. I was gifted one and am buying another.

Ostin omani joskus ihan 90-luvun alussa, ollut mukana lukuisat kertausharjoitukset (siihen aikaan ValtionPoikaleiri® kaipasi vuoden välein rivejään täydentämään; SA Int -pakki lensi aina siviilikamalaatikkoon jemmaan harjoituksen purkua odottamaan) ja vielä lukuisammat vaellusskabat sun muut möyrimiset.
Yhdelle nälkäiselle taistelijalle riittävä, kolmen partiolle täydellinen "apuliesi" trangian oheen, taistelijaparin keittimeksi karvan verran pieni.

Puoli pistettä pois pakin muodosta, ei saa kunnolla kaminan kylkeen niin kuin perinteisen munuaisenmuotoisen.

I have had 4 of the original Swedish mess kits for many years. One of them is stainless steel. They are all fantastic but I prefer the heavier stainless pot combination. Really first rate and reliable gear.

FYI: fire screen does not appear to be surplus but a reproduction like the pot. I had hoped for the 3 crowns. Still good quality and a good value. Varusteleka Is my favorite on line merchant!!
