Invented over a hundred years ago and still used by the US Army, these cups are made of stainless steel and together with the canteen form a compact package. This is just the cup!

An excellent alternative for a full-sized mess tin when space is an issue. The cup is typically stored together with the canteen. These are made mostly in the late 1900's, no WW1 relics here. Being stainless steel these are tough and can be heated over open flame.

Volume about 0,5 litres. That's half a quart.

Genuine US surplus

Stainless steel, handles vary, most are the side-folding types but there are some underfolders mixed in too. Used but still perfectly serviceable.

Although a new "identical" Mil-Tec or some other make's cup will cost about the same as these, we still suggest trusting genuine US GI surplus - there will be no weird unpleasant surprises with quality. These pre-used ones will last a lifetime anyway, unless rolled over by a tank.

This contemporary USGI Canteen Cup is made of high quality stainless steel & the most durable military issue canteen cup (or any cup for that matter) I know of and or have experienced in 40 years. On strength: I saw a truck park on top of the Zebra Billy Can #1. This canteen cup feels twice the thickness of that billy- so go figure! On material quality, I have had water spill from the canteen when in refill and unbeknowst to myself trickle down and sit in the canteen cup for 48hrs- there was no rust whatsoever. This is rare. Handles interlock. I measured the cups capacity exactly. It holds a (usable) 750ml for sure (may be less with evaporation remember). You will find this is the 'standard size' for a hiking cook pot/ cup. However, this 750ml is with 150ml (spare) from being full to the brim (so you have space to stir, hence the words 'usable space'). If you eat a lot and are cooking a meal, I recommend roasting your potatoes or other large veg. in foil in the fire separate to the canteen cup; and cooking your meat in the cup, then adding them to your main meal. That way you maximise cooking space in the cup, yet save weight on not requiring a bigger cup. The cup could be made perfect by using again all stainless materials and stainless rivets to secure the handles on and changing the butterfly handles to the old single fold bail under arm handle with the slit for extended for handle use over a fire. This is the preferred, importantly stable choice of many bushmen as the cup cap be placed directly on a fire if necessary and if the stove stand isn't available. This handle also gives the cup stability on inclines or uneven surfaces, such as mountain faces. Rivets are the strongest form of construction, cope better with heat expansion than spot welds & can be replaced if necessary. The WWII USGI cup used them, but I think the cup itself was aluminium, not stainless steel, which is not perfect. The only lid I know that fits this contemporary USGI canteen here is the Pathfinder recessed lip lid. It is recommend as coals can be placed on top of this lid that wont fall off, like when baking foods. Many do not realise the stand that goes with these is brilliant, as unlike the Hobo stove it can simply be lifted from the fire and placed on a new grouping of fresh coals, no new fire making or restocking needed. If you want a forever cooking pot/ cup, that is ergonomic, super strong to use a s main cook unit or supplement as a scouting one there is a reason this cup has been in service for 100 years. If you demand outright strength for extreme environments & you need to rely on your equipment to keep you a live, I strongly recommend you seriously consider this cup. So there you have it. If you want beautifully built, refined strength- a cup that is lighter but still strong enough to last a lifetime & beyond, consider the Dutch Army Stainless Steel Canteen Cup. But that another story... There you go. A canteen cup nerds perspective of the USGI s/s Canteen Cup.

The one I received is stamped "US WCW" on the handle with no date. It has the l-shaped handle that folds under, not the butterfly handles. It is very thick steel and I cannot bend the cup with my hands unlike so many modern repros. Info online seems to suggest this is a Vietnam Era cup, but I'm not sure as it seems WCW was making cups for several decades. Seems they stopped sometimes in the 70's, so at the very least I have a 40+ year old heirloom. I'm very pleased as I was expecting the butterfly version and this one is definitely built to last!
