Partial review since I didn't cook with this one just used the canteen, but used other items like Gen3 pathfinder and wanted to review before I forget. canteen works well cap is only questionable part doesn't twist on well and doesn't seem very durable but time will tell. Cover worked well on my belt didn't always want to let the canteen fall into place but the strap forced it together every time I clipped it in place. If it works as well as other items I purchased from Self Reliance Outfitters should be great all around if I find issues with the cooker I will review again.

The quality on material, the design, lid, cup handle, and performance of the kit is the best of all from any other product in the market. The cooking kit exceed my expectations. The widemouth size of the canteen is a must for water collection on difficult scenarios, and the quality of the stainless steel make the quality of the water greater. I highly recommend this product. The canteen bag allows to add all the required accessories for the kit.

As far as the canteen, cup, and stove are concerned; outstanding quality. The economy bag thing that came with the kit is okay, a little loud, but they sell it for $3 separately, i.e. you get what you pay for.
The only problem that I have with the canteen itself is that the lid can take a little doing when trying to put it back on. Especially compare with the other Pathfinder Canteen. Other than that, will definitely recommend this kit to other people.

The pouch for the canteen is an halfbaked five star concept.
Put together with the canteen you don't need to dig for your canteen tools every now and then when hiking or whatever. You simply attach it to your back with your belt (that's what i do) for easy, quick and effective access.
I looked forward getting the canteen, it was a fun approach on the classical concept of dining in the woods, so i loved the forest green cordura pouch (which sadly wasn't 1000 graded due to my need for outmost quality, but respectable nonetheless since the higher the quality; The stiffer it gets!) However. When i recieved it, i quickly learned how UNleveled the design was with the tactical wares you can attach it to. The tactical straps are out of place and leaves an ackwardly bent pouch if you attach it to ANY tactical clothing or gear. The pockets on the pouch are very out of scale and has an unneccessary big overlap, leaving the locks flapping around silly. The strap around the top of the pouch is weak, the chosen plastic rope (or whatever it's called) is in a very weak condition and cannot be used for its purpose to tigthen the hold around the pouch much more than it was as loose, worthless with other words.
As i said earlier, this was not 1000 graded Cordura material, leaving the pouch very loose and flappy. This results in a difficult demand of both hands whenever you wish to unsheath or sheath the canteen into the pouch. This is probably why there is a belt forcing the canteen stuck into the pouch at the top, also. The pouch delivers what it promises; It will HOLD the canteen safe and sound for you, but the way it is built and its design? Veeeery ineffective, ergo halfbaked great concept. Conclusion: 2.5 stars (half! And since i can't give half credits due to the system here, i'm being nice and grant it three stars since i like green so much.)

I was very pleased with this canteen. Here's the pro's: widemouth is definitely fantastic, practical and easy to fill and drink from. The big surprise for me was the steel nesting cup. I thought the handle would be flimsy. Boy was I wrong. It locks into place and was extremely sturdy and comfortable. I was also surprised with the quality of the canteen bag. It is constructed rather well and appears to be holding up very well, thus far. I like the extra side pockets too. Here's the con's: the nesting stove was annoying to use. The port to feed the wood was rather small and I found that once I placed the cup or canteen on the stove it would smother out the flames. It does not come with a lid for the cup. I purchased one separately and it fit and worked very well. Greatly pleased with the bullet proof feel, design and performance of this product. Highly recommend you get one.

My dog and I just finished 18 days in the Cohutta Wilderness of N. Georgia ( not bad for a soon to be 67er)I put the Canteen Cook Set through a very stringent 2 1/2 wks. Two years ago I became quite ill from ,most likely, Bad Water even though I used chemical treatment purchased at wally world. Since that time I use only potable or boiled water. This cook set boiled my water for 15 of the 18 days No leaks ,easy to clean, extremely easy to carry on belt or shoulder sling , due to the curvature . Cooking was great since my Trangia fit perfectly. Eliminates the need to carry a separate cook set. I would recommend this to be a "no brainer" item for everyone , even if you keep it in your vehicle for emergencies.

We're very pleased with the quality & versatility of this set. We added the Pathfinder Bottle Hanger & Pathfinder Canteen Cup Lid to it, as well as an alcohol stove & flint & steel. We take it everywhere with us. I'm a 56 year old woman, have livestock, & spend most of my time outdoors. Our winters are extremely harsh & this set could easily end up being a life saver. I've tried out & shared these great outdoor products with friends & family, & I'm looking forward to purchasing & sharing many more Pathfinder Products based on the quality & usefulness of this one.

I've carried a lot of gear in my day but this canteen cook set is probably the best I've ever carried. Other than the fact that its a bit heavier in the pack or on the belt. It is rugged almost bomb proof the canteen cleans with ease due to the wide mouth. The stove works well with wood, esbit, candles or any other fuel you put under it. The only thing more I could want in this kit would be a lid for the cup..

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.
