Great Canteen Set. Especially with the widemouth bottle it make filling it a breeze. And I use every time I go hiking. And like Dave says the only way to kill the on board germs is by boiling the water.

Bought the ss canteen cup stove, lid and bottle hanger.They are well made, but a little heavy when full of water. The canteen cup has painted measurements on the side of the cup, so be careful when cleaning, especially with sand if you need these measurements. The canteen bag is big enough to hold everything safely. The two side pouches on the bag are nice, but more Velcro is needed as small objects can fall out. So far it looks like you get what you pay for. Good products.

Well made piece of gear... I've used Nalgene bottles or camel back bladders for several years now . Being able to boil water in a pinch was the main reason I went with this set-up. Very happy with the quality and the price. The stove is great and works like a champ...forgot how much better water tastes in a metal container ! Only critique is the cheesy little bungee around the top of the pouch .... its useless.

This canteen set is great for me. I'm 1,95 m tall with big, strong hands. This set does not feel flimsy to me. It is a good, solid piece that will withstand heavy use (and probably misuse) well. It holds a good sized portion of liquid and the bag has room for a few extra kit items. The shape actually makes it good to carry on your hip or on the outside of a pack. It doesn't flop about much and stays where you put it. I would not put small stuff in the side pockets of the bag though. The pockets are closed off by just a flap, so small stuff might fall out through the leftover opening between pocket and cover flap. But bigger items should be no problem.

Made sturdy. I have not used it yet as the cap had gotten stuck. The small drops of water left behind from the leak test created a vacuum seal during delivery (AZ heat). Channel lock pliers with cloth to protect cap got it off. Based on this I would store filled it it will be kept in hot area when not in use

Definitively my favourite canteen, great way to make coffee on the trail.
Mine arrived a bit wet inside with rust coloured spots on the floor of the canteen itself. Not sure what this is ( I don't think it's rust it hasn't gotten any worse, nor will it come off with a wire brush).
I've used and abused mine everyday for a few months now and the handle and lid show no wear at all.

I've been looking at this canteen set since it was first released. It was my B-day last week so I finally bought it. Arrived quickly and was packaged very well. I can tell someone leak tested it before shipping.
I plan to keep mine in my car as part of my emergency kit, and for trail use when weight isn't an extreme factor. I've also purchased an Esbit alcohol stove in case wood is scarce, wet, or otherwise not an option.
As you may know, there are 2 different bags you can get, mine came with the cheaper '3' dollar bag as expected which is actually perfect for 'car carry'. If you plan on strapping this to the side of yourself, or your pack, you'll want the more expensive bag.
The quality overall is outstanding. I've been a QA engineer for over 20 years and always gravitate towards higher priced, higher quality items. Life is too short. I love the canteen.
2 minor nit picks, which I wouldn't have even noticed had this been an inexpensive product.
First - the hinge pin fell out of my canteen cup the first time I opened the handle. I found it a half hour later in the carpet. I will need to put a slightly more aggressive bend in this pin and use one of my steel punches to set it back in place. I obviously can't trust that it wont fall out on the trail in its current state. I suggest you take a look at the pin on yours to make sure this isn't a common problem. It's an easy fix as long as you don't lose it.
Second - There are 3 very small, and very shallow dents on my canteen straight out of the box, all on the bottom half. I'm sure I eventually will add my own 'character' marks, but this one probably should have gone in the scratch and dent section.
These 2 very minor concerns should not deter you from purchasing this amazing set. It may be a little heavy, but try doing half of what this set can do with plastic or aluminum and you'll definitely be sorry.

LOVE IT, WORKS JUST LIKE YOU SAY IT DOES. IF YOU HEAT WATER FOR COFFE ,ECT IN THE CANTEEN , A CARABINER CAN BE USED TO PULL IT OFF THE FIRE AND POUR RIGHT AWAY. WORKS PERFECT AS A HANDLE , CLIP IT DOWN ON THE TOP TO INSIDE THE CANTEEN LIFT AND POUR . I RECENTLY FOUND THIS STORE THEY GOT GREAT PRODUCTS , I SPENT AROUND 125 BUCKS TO SEE THE QUALITY . ITS THERE ON THIS PRODUCT.

Canteen Cooking Set
Whether you are a causal hiker, a hunter, a prepper, an extreme outdoor enthusiast, or serving a tour of duty in the jungles of Peru, you are 1 mechanical injury away from finding yourself in a real survival situation.
Let's face it, at that point, your 2 primary concerns are always going to be hydration and core temperature regulation, that is why this kit is a MUST HAVE in your pack. The Pathfinder Widemouth Military Canteen
Cooking Kit was designed so the canteen will nest inside the cup along with the stove for convenient and compact storage. Not all containers are created equal, and in a survival situation, unless your container can
withstand direct fire for the purposes of boiling/disinfecting water, the effects of water borne pathogens are quickly going to add to your list of troubles. Continuing to raise the bar, The Pathfinder School has developed the ONLY widemouth stainless steel military canteen on the market today. The widemouth design of this canteen allows you to easily obtain water from the shallowest of water pools, which will help conserve precious calories and energy that can be used to aid in your rescue or to affect your own self-rescue. The nesting cup has a foldable handle that securely fastens the stove to the cup when not in use and has measurementgraduations on the inside.
In addition, with every Canteen Cooking Set sold $1 will be donated to the National Pathfinder Youth Organization.
