Re: a discussion of mess kits

Not to double post but its been a while and I finally received my mess kit. Its pretty shiny and hefty, I don't got a real m40 to compare with but feels like its very durable. Have to wait for a weekend to give it a try. Definitely didn't come with an alcohol burner but I got a tatonka stove that wo...
