Also, has anyone ever tested the seam on these fucking things for lead?

0,5l plastic bottle for drinking while on the move. If I wont be near clean running water I’ll bring up to four 1l plastic bottles with water. A small kettle to cook coffee. Small aluminum pan to cook food/water. I’ll usually bring a thermo cup for coffee, hot cocoa etc but will replace it with a 1l thermos with a small cup.

Do those milspec canttens have lead?
>>
>>1469121
the chink ones? i guess you could try heating it up on the stove and if it starts looking a bit sweaty and drippy then there's a problem. though afaik theres no reason for even the chinks to use lead for anything since aluminium is so abundant and cheap
>>
>>1469063
Anyone know where I could get some stainless steel GI style canteens like OP's pic from a reputable source that isn't gonna be aluminium or full of chink poisons, preferably in or deliver's to Australia?
>>
>>1469144
Just go to a mil surplus store ya dumb cunt.

We don't have mil surplus stores unfortunately

Good ol' Nalgene liter bottle. Might get one of those cups for it eventually but I haven't really needed one or anything since I also have a liter cook pot.

>Do those milspec canttens have lead?
OP here. As far as I've found the original MITUSA M-1942 canteens all used lead solder in the manufacturing. They originally used a solder band and then switched to a crimping machine with a dab of lead solder to seal it gaps. I haven't found any evidence that authentic canteens ever deviated, so the question of a lead-free M-1942 canteen falls entirely to reproductions. So I'm curious if canteens like the thinner Chinese reproductions and the 1.2L pattern copies sold as survival canteens have lead in them. I can't find any evidence of anyone ever testing them, and this is Chinese solder we're talking about.
>>
>>1469249
I may be totally wrong in my concern and they may use some different manufacturing technique for the reproduction canteens, but I'm going off of what evidence I can find relating to the manufacture of the two-piece horizontal seam US military canteens.
>>
Anyone ever used one of these generic Chinese cheapies?

You mean cheap knock off of real products
>>
>>1469063
Bump, I use exactly that. I'm sure it said 100% steel on the product details on amazon though. Still that's not exactly 100% reliable.
>>
>>1470058
Oh, it's steel, but the issue is that the canteen is made from two parts. It's a top and bottom half that are crunched and sealed together with solder, top over bottom. The question I have is what sort of solder was used, as it's a Chinese product and even the official US canteens from the period used tin/lead solder.

Aussie disposals, I bought a dutch army surplus canteen & cup and a german air force canvas bag from them. And a pair of swiss leather gaiters for dem sneks

I have the 1000ml version, i didnt wash it the first time i used it so i probably have 16 different types of cancer now.Other than that ive been using it daily for about a year now, the throat is nice if you have to pee and you're in your car in a crowded place.Also it has a clearcoat on the outside to make it look and feel slicker, but it will burn off if you boil water in it. Overall great bottle would buy again if i break it.

It was a coffee/tea container but i cut it and made a cup, it nests in the bigger pot
>>
1.5l with a sippy thing for drïnc
2l for cooking
>>
>>1469546
Yes. I've got 5. 1000ml, 2 x 750ml and 2 x little 350ml? ones.

I've dropped them countless times, and dented them, but they're still Ok. There are a few sellers on aliexpress and there are definitely some that are better than others. One of the 750ml is thinner walled than the others.

I keep mixed coffee/sugar/whitener in the little ones.

They're good value. The neoprene covers soon get holes in them though, so I use an old sock to cover mine lol

how bad are the bpa free big nalgenes or whatever? is the plastic that bad vs metal?
>>
>>1471013
you can kill a bear with a steel one, you can piss off a bear with a plastic one
>>
>>1471013
new plastic ones are bpa free but that comes with a higher chance of the bottle breaking. Metal one are legit because you can boil stuff in it.
>>
Where can I get pannikin that won't kill me
>>
>>1471854
Define "a pannikin". A cup? You can get a stainless steel cup with a stamped handle and a lid for $2 from China off of Ebay. Fly handle? You can get a fly-handle stainless steel cup for $5 from Walmart. Ceramic? No idea. Wood? Buy a carving knife and make one or pay the premium.
>>
>>1472286
Note: With anything, make sure you wash it and take care of it to get rid of machine oil and residues from the manufacturing. I bought a stainless steel camping kit that came stinking.

What's a good grate and pot for cooking over raked coals? I don't mind entry level stuff for a few ounces more, if I end up really liking it I guess I could buy into higher-end stuff.
>>
>>1469063
Smart water bottle. Cheap, screws into my Sawyer filter, easy to pack.

Been using this every day for like 3 years or something. I like that I can boil water in it in survival situations when I'm being chased by tactical ninjas.

>>1475571
oh ya, and it was only $10 from canadian tire
>>
>>1469063
I don't know about things other than electronics, but if it's made past 2003 and is sold in the EU the solder they use in it has to be lead-free. Something about reducing lead in the landfills.

Czechoslovak mess kit (two pots and a pan) with a Swiss cup nested inside. It fits tightly and doesn’t rattle.
>>
>>1473560
look at a thrift store for accesosries for mini ovens, they usually have a grill grate
>>
Trangia Spirit burner (also used by German army and can be bought as surplus) is what I like for temps over 40F. Alcohol stoves do not work well if it's much colder. https://www.bensbackwoods.com/trangia-spirit-burner/

A hobo stove doesn't require you to carry fuel, just grab anything that burns like pine cones, wood chips, etc. So I make my own.

I have a fondness if these types of items:
>Swiss Black Canteen w/ Cup
>Milsup USMC Canteen
>Unknown Canteen Cup
>Widemouth Nalgene 1L Bottle

Just get a pan and a pot and a water bottle
