    Slippy, does that mean there is a US Mess Kit in a 2 Quart Canteen Cover on your ALICE LC2?

    Why did Army do away with mess kits ? To darn many soldiers got sick from them. I remember when they collected up the last of them and deleted them from our issue records.

    We used canteen cup for creative cooking. Soldiers will always find away.

    I carry a nested mess kit with a Trangia Spirit alcohol stove in a small Maxpedition belt/MOLLE kit bag in my GHB. With a couple packets of Ramen noodles squeezed in, it's enough to get me by with hot meals for 24 hrs.

    No Sir. It means all I have is a Solo Stove and a Metal Spork in my bag. No US Mess Kit in a 2 Quart Canteen Cover. Maybe one day.
