Features

The Swedish army has very spiffy gear. The near legendary 5-piece mess kit has been in use for decades, the material has just changed from steel to aluminum. This is a streamlined version of the kit without the oval-shaped cooking vessels.

Inside you will find the spirit stove by Svea (or possibly Trangia). They are both made according to military specs and equally good, but can have some minor visual differences. The stove is pretty similar to the civilian Trangia stove but bigger. You can fit about twice as much fuel and it is more difficult to tip over. Additionally, you get a well ventilated aluminum windshield/stove stand that is painted black. Inside it there are foldable legs on top of which you set the mess tin when you want to cook something in it. For transportation, they fold down, and the tin slides down to the bottom. Finally, there is also a handy (and empty) plastic bottle for the stove spirit (the fuel, not the djinn).

Size info

  • Total weight (bottle empty): c. 320 g (11.3 oz)
  • Burner measurements: c. 9 x 5 cm (3.5" x 2")
  • Windshield measurements (l, w, h): c. 17 x 11.5 x 14 cm (6.7" x 4.5" x 5.5")
  • Fuel bottle measurements (l, w, h): 8 x 3.6 x 15 cm (3.1" x 1.4" x 5.9")

The windshield is made to work together with the oval Swedish mess tin. If you have one of those, you are good to go. We also tested how these work with the mess kits that we currently have (Austrian, Romanian, and Swiss). All of them slide onto the cooking legs very nicely. So you can cook grub with all of them fine and dandy. The Romanian also slides fully down to the bottom for transportation. However, the other two won't go as far down due to their somewhat different carrying handle attachment. Check out the pics to see it better.

Condition

Swedish military surplus. Some of them are as good as new. Some have scratches, small dents, and other signs of time. All the ones we checked had not seen any cooking. All perfectly serviceable in any case. Bomb-proof military gear that will feed even your grandchildren.

Kotimainen pakki ja moni muukin mahtuu keittoasentoon (siis ylhäällä jalkojen varassa), mutta ei mahdu kokonaan tuulensuojan sisään eli pakkautuu huonosti.
Ruotsalaisten ovaalinmuotoisen pakin kanssa loistava vehje, ollut käytössä reilun pari vuosikymmentä, mukana parissa kertausharjoituksessakin (SA-pakki lensi siviilitavaralaatikkoon perustamispaikalla).

Joku kun tekisi tuosta tuulensuojasta SA-pakki-yhteensopivan, ehkä vielä teräksisenä että kestäisi risukeittelyäkin...

Toimii parhaiten ruotsalaisen pakin kanssa. Ja tälle keittimelle on hyvä olla jokin alusta, esimerkiksi pätkä lautaa. Keittimelle kun keittoalustassa on pohjassa keittimen mentävä reikä, niin keitin asettuu parhaiten kun alla on jokin tukeva ja suora pinta. Jos koettaa laittaa sammalmättäälle keittimen niin saa kyllä tällätä, että keitinosan saa tätä mätästä vasten suoraan ja oikealle korkeudelle. Eli jos ei varmasti ole tiedossa, että keittimen saa retkellä suoralle ja tukevalle pinnalle kannattaa varautua ja ottaa mukaan esimerkiksi laudan tai levyn palanen, jonka sitten voi asettaa esimerkiksi nurmikolle ja keitinhärdellin sen päälle.

Jos joku ei sitä vielä tiedä - ja vaikka joku muuta väittäisi - tämä on maailman paras yhden hengen retkikeittiö. Itsellä käytössä yli 20 vuotta teräksinen versio. Tähti pois tämän setin pakittomuudesta.

Ei tähän kyllä oma sveitsiläinen pakki menny kovinkaan kivuttomasti kuvan mukaisella tavalla pohjaan asti, eli vähän aikaa saa väännellä ja paukutella sopivampaan muotoon.

Pienellä muokkaamisella dremelillä tästä sai kyllä tosi loistavan lisävarusteen pakille, pikkusen leveemmäks kun veistää noita päädyissä olevia lovia että mahtuu menemään pakki syvemmälle, ja etuseinän alareunaan leveä aukko, jotta pakin lukitsemismekanismin saa siitä läpi ja kannen lukittua niin kuin pitääkin.

Poltin toimii todella hyvin ja eikä vuotanut kun korkin laitto kiinni, muutenkin jämäkkää tekoa.

I have been looking for the remainder of the Swedish messkit set for ages, at least an affordable set to go with my stanless steel Swedish tins. I am very pleased with what I have received. The Trangia burner clearly is used but is clean and its gasket feels solid. The spirit bottle is clean and seems lightly used, if used at all. The windscreen has been used and has some wear but is clean and appears entirely serviceable. The Svea windscreen is lighter-weight than I expected (yay!); my only concern is the top edges feel sharp. I will have to arrange a canvas bag to save wear on my rucks. I am *really* looking forward to getting out in the boreal woods and cooking with it.
