Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Seen one or two people with these mini mess tins with lids.

    Are they any good for heating rat packs up a little quicker and are they worth buying?

  2. I found that trangia's were too soft (ie they bent quite easliy), so I have moved onto a jet boil. Awesome piece of kit and self contained. However, it is gas powered.
  3. I prefer gas, but when i cant take it for example planes and not being bothered looking for a gas seller, i thought I would give these a try. They did look flimsy, but the idea of a lid to aid the cooking time appealed to me.

    Just wondered about other peoples experiences with them.
  4. they are a good bit of kit nice and small hot scoff in no time with the lid on ,works well with a pocket rocket or the gel fuel if on ops,the new issued metal mugs are worth a look too.
  5. Cheers for that 8)
