This is my canteen cup mess kit. I generally take a canteen these days when backpacking or hiking because I like having something to mix drinks in that I can carry around. Sometimes I take along a stainless steel canteen or a Nalgene version. I carry a canteen cup because it fits nicely with the canteen and can be used in a fire or on a stove. It is nice to have a cup that can double as a boil or cook pot if need be. I also have a nice lid for the canteen cup as well. The whole kit is carried in one pouch on the waist belt of my backpack.
