Swiss mess tin, aluminum, surplus

Price 16.99 USD excluding VAT

The Swiss army mess kit is surprisingly like the usual kidney shaped mess tins, but bigger than usual. You could even cook for two in this! Being used they look a bit scruffy but work just as they should.

The Swiss army mess kit is surprisingly like the usual kidney shaped mess tins, but bigger than usual. You could even cook for two in this! Being used they look a bit scruffy but work just as they should.

Comprises of a large pot with a smaller lid with a folding handle. The steel wire carrying handle can be used to hang the mess kit over flame for some traditional outdoor cooking. Normally these would have a third small pot, but none of these have it. It's not really a necessary piece either, so no harm done. Naturally the pot has a large enough bottom to be used with any field stove too.

Being made of aluminium these are quite light and will not rust. Weight only 185 grams (4.4 oz.), outside dimensions 19 x 20 x 10,5 cm (7.5" x 7.9" x 4.1").

Used Swiss surplus

In used, but good serviceable condition. Of course being what they are, the outside appearance might be rough, but this doesn't hinder use in any way. Of course we suggest washing before use.

Having carried this for a good part of my military service, I can say it is seriously solid piece of kit. It has plenty space to carry ingredients for whatever you intend to cook in the field and I'd say, it's the piece of kit I've maintained best after my rifle. One I was issued at one point looked worse than the one in the photo (and may be in a bin in Helsinki for that reason now).
Shame the insert isn't available though. If you get one, do check back here regularly or look around for one, they make a world of difference in versatility of the thing.
