Trangia 27-1UL stove

Trangia 27-1UL stove

54.99 USD

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 27 is the smaller model, designed for single users or two person meals. Basic ultralight aluminium construction.

Issue US Army 1 quart water canteen. Probably one of the most ubiquitous water canteens out there. The same stuff has been issued since the M-1956 load bearing equipment came into use, and this is still going strong!

This canteen is part of the US individual mess kit system. A metallic cup is available separately, which fits around the bottom of the canteen to save space in your pack. Even with the cup the canteen fits perfectly into the US army water canteen pouches, regardless of model (ALICE, MOLLE II etc.).

Review of the US 1qt canteen

This canteen, coupled with the US canteen cup, is a combo that I have fallen in love with during an autumn march. This "canteen and cup" combination is nothing new - it's been in use by soldiers for years - but with my recent test I myself understood just how useful this combination really is. Personally, I like to carry this combo in a pouch on my leg rig, along with an Esbit stove, fire-making tools, a spork, and a few food bars and instant soup pouches. With this setup you have everything you need to survive for a few days just in case, for example, your rucksack falls into some ravine, spontaneously explodes, or does something else not very beneficial to your situation. Cool stuff!

The canteen cup gives the added benefit of being able to heat stuff up when needed, which is extremely useful when in the wild. Also, the whole setup is quite compact and light, and you don't need to carry along any cookers or mess kits.

- vuosia oli kotimainen 0,5l:n puteli, joka vuosi usein ja korkin hajottua hankin tämän
- kantsii kiertää korkki oikeille jengoille, niin ei mukana olevat kamat kastu, hyvä yleisesti ottaen
- pitäisi nyt kehua kotimaista, mutta tässä kestää korkki kiinnikkeessään paremmin (tärkeä juttu)

Can confirm it does leak, however only if rocked violently. Should be able to fix it, I'll need to go through my plumbing stash and find a rubber washer that will fit the cap and it should be good. It's still a decent canteen, but it requires some attention and work. For DIY folks.

EDIT: fixed like stated above.

Minulla on kaksi näitä jenkkimallin kenttäpulloja, enkä ole saanut kumpaakaan niistä vuotamaan. En tiedä, mistä toisten raportoimat vuoto-ongelmat johtuvat.


Pidän itse jenkkien kenttäpullosta enemmän kuin Puolustusvoimien mallista, koska kummastakin PV:n pullostani hajosi korkin pidike tavanomaisessa käytössä. Toinen hajosi varusmiespalveluksen aikana ja toinen siviilissä. Jenkkipulloissa samainen pidike on kestänyt rääkkäämistä hajoamatta.


Summary in English: I have two of these and I cannot get either of them to leak. YMMV apparently.
