Czech Mess Kit – Three-Piece Military Mess Kit with Two Pots
Czech Mess Kit
The Czech Mess Kit is a three piece mess kit that was previously issued to the Czech army. This modern mess kit consists of two cooking pots and one lid that can also be used as a plate for eating. Designed for use in the field, this mess kit is light weight and durable with a nested design that uses very little space in your pack.
The Czech mess kit is a completely original Czech military surplus item. Originally issued to members of the Czech army for field use, these three-piece mess kits are the perfect addition to any survival kit. While they are surplus items, they are in great condition. As such, you will notice that no mess kits are in perfect condition. They carry some wear and some scratches but are still perfectly usable.
As noted, the Czech mess kit is a three-piece mess kit consisting of two pots and a lid. All components are constructed from lightweight aluminum and the entire assembly weighs in at just 1.15 pounds, which adds negligible weight to your gear. The larger of the two pots has a height of approximately 3.25 inches and a diameter of 6 inches while the smaller of the two pots has a height of approximately 3 inches and a diameter of 5.25 inches. Each pot has a folding handle. Additionally, the small pot fits inside of the big pot for easy transport.
I have had and used many mess kits over the years-- most were lacking in one area or another: too big; too small; too irregular; one good piece, several odd pieces; too many pieces; too few pieces-- a real pain. To me, this cookset is just right. The right number of pieces, the right size, and it packs beautifully. You will not go wrong with this set.
A mess kit for the ages
I needed a mess kt which will withstand the vigor of a hunting group,with some individuals that are hard on cooking implements. This mess kit is made well for hard use. Although not new,the kit became presentable with soap and steel wool which removed the aluminum oxide coating.For the price,I don't mind additional dents,knowing that it will last many seasons!
Well worth it
Mine came in 95% good shape, very minimal scratches and no dents. Small enough for scout packs, enough room for extra fire starting material and silverware.
Well worth the money
Mine came in excellent shape, all parts in perfect working condition.
I bought this mess kit not to replace my old commercial hiking mess kit used for years on Search & Rescue mission or other adventures on the back woods, but for having a additional mess kit that will be bigger and stronger when the time will asking to have more fresh cooked meal on the "table" ( the size of this mess kit its double or triple in comparison with the size of my old one mess kit) and I am so happy that I made this step. The Mess Kit its listen like used and really its looking like had been used for years and years ( scratches, dents.... all you want ), but, all this its just for outside! Inside, a big surprise!!! Brand new and shiny like a mirror or close enough. The mess kit never been used and all its just from harsh storage on last 30 years or so. Definitely, I will recommend this mess kit here on KS website and on my wilderness survival workshop!
I will see the true how will work out above to a camp fire this weekend. I have a bunch of equipment from KS to test this weekend. The weather its getting nice again here in PNW and lots roads up on the mountain are starting to get open ..... :)
Get those grubs some soap! Yup It's used....
Once cleaned, it will work just fine. For the price , I might just leave it behind for the next guy (used / dirty of course) . For my cooking , it is a perfectly useable product, I'm in a holding pattern until the fancy French stuff comes up for sale again. That will help with my cooking.
Like all things on this site the mess kit is food value for money. Perfect for cooking and will withstand boiling H2O to sanitize. Very handy.
