If you are running to your children's sporting events, school functions or other outings, these come in handy for feeding everyone a good home cooked meal!

Complete mess kit includes a metal pot with handle for cooking, plastic serving container and cup, one quart canteen, nesting knife, fork, spoon, bottle and can openers, and canvas carry pouch with 2" belt loops. This is military surplus gear in unissued, Grade I condition. Stowed kit measures 7.5x5x3.25".

"A very well made mess kit, but has a pretty funky Eastern Bloc smell from years of storage. Went away after a couple runs through the dishwasher. Overall well made, in excellent unused condition, and just what I needed for my bug out bag. No surprises, and as usual, timely shipping from CTD."

"Quality was not as described - Grade II at best. Plastic outer cup was deformed as though it was too close to heater. Even after washing in the dishwasher (air dry) it was funky with stuck on food debris. I had to scrape it off with a surgical pick. It will be in the next yard sale for $2.00."

"Ordered two of these but only received one. It was in new, unissued condition - just as described. I called to report the missing set and they immediately shipped a new one. Except that it wasn't new. It was in extremely worn condition with ball point pen lettering (\"PRLE\") written in two different locations on the cover in inch-high letters. The components were in no better condition. The knife is rusty and the canteen top is broken. Not cool."

"I am not sure what I was thinking when I bought this, I should have spent my money on something north american. The smell and mold in the product makes me wonder how safe ill will be using it. I am not sure if this plastic should even go in my dish washer or how I can insure it is clean, even after boiling it out with hot hot water and soap. I even doubt using the pot to cook now, this reminds me of 80 products and lead based products to avoid."

"CTD, you need to be honest here. This kit is not unissued grade 1. I read the reviews before purchase and half way expected what I was sent. Mine had a number \"13\" printed on it in permanent marker. It did smell stale of years of storage. I 100% agree with the j.c. haddix review."

"Mine arrived in time and appeared almost unused. It was in very good condition. There were some signs of use in the base pot(the part with the handle). Everything else was in excellent shape and cleaned up well. Reading the other comments, I should point out that military \"mess kits\" fall into two catagories. Some, like U.S. mess kits of old can be used for food heating/cooking while others are simply 'serving' systems. This kit falls in the latter. It is obviously not designed to be used to prepare food but to hold prepared food so that the soldier may consume it. I like the fitted water bottle and the utensils which alone make the price worthwhile."

"I got 2 of these, what a good deal. They both are like new, tho the cloth carry case has a bit of wear on it, it should be good for a good long time still. The cloth did smell a bit musty, from some years in storage, but the mess kit itself is great. Not quite USGI gear, BUT very good none the less, perfect for adults, great for kids."

"This purchase was well worth the money. It came as described and was complete. It did have the musty European storage odor and was a little dirty but was nothing that a little dish detergent couldn't take care of. It was the best under 10 dollar purchase I have ever made (if it wasn't for the shipping)."

"First one came used, with a damaged canteen. The second one came unissued, as advertised, and even had the original instruction booklet inside the pot. Excellent piece of gear, with the customer service to match. Would definitely recommend."
