If you’re heading out into the wilderness, you’ll need water. Sometimes you can find water where you camp, and sometimes you need to pack some water for the trip. Either way, you’ll need something you can rely on to hold your water. The Keith Titanium Canteen Mess Kit is a popular canteen for bushcraft and survival. Made of premium pure titanium grade 1, the mess kit is durable and lightweight.

The canteen mess kit includes several parts – the titanium canteen, a titanium cup with handles, which fits on the outside of the canteen, a lid for the cup, and the metal and plastic lids for the canteen.

I was really impressed by how light the entire kit is. It weighs less than 3/4 lb (about 11 oz.) This canteen kit is a nice, lightweight choice for both day hikes and overnight camps. While light, it still feels durable – like I wouldn’t need to worry about cracks or breaks if I dropped it on a rock.

The Keith Titanium Canteen Mess Kit is great for use in the fire. Whether boiling water or cooking food, you can put the canteen and/or the canteen cup directly into the fire. The handles on the cup let you easily remove it from the heat.

If you use the titanium cup for cooking, it eliminates the need for carrying a separate camping pot on your bushcraft trip. The included cup lid lets you steam food inside the cup. It can also be useful for boiling water or keeping leaves from falling into your cup.

Final Thoughts about the Keith Titanium Canteen Mess Kit

Overall, the Keith Titanium Canteen Mess Kit is very versatile, very light and has become part of my EDC (every day carry) bag. I use it on virtually every bushcraft trip. I also like that the kit is dishwasher safe, for easy cleaning after a trip.
