For it's size, it's a truly weighty bit of kit. I'm not someone who obsesses about pack weights, but I can't see this ever making it into my rucksack. It might go away with me on some group camps, but I'd never hike with it. On the upside the thickness of the metal means your food doesn't go stone cold within seconds whilst outdoors, and it's not so easy to burn stuff as you get a more even heat. It's made out of stainless steel too, so is easier to clean than an aluminum one. It's also not going to fold in on itself like the cheap mess tins are.

That said, for the price, it leaves a lot to be desired. At least with cheap mess tins you can pack stuff inside them. This is twice as heavy, yet you can't pack a spork inside it (about half a centimeter too small to accept one even on the diagonal).

My tip is to buy the small trangia mess tin. It stores my trangia triangle, burner, teeny bottle of meths and a spork all in one, and fits nicely into a side pocket of a rucksack. It's aluminium, but sturdier than the cheap mess tins, and has a tight fitting lid. Also about £7 cheaper. Buy that one, not this.

I bought this along with the Crusader Cooking System. It's quite thick compared to other 'cheaper' mess tins so it heats a little more evenly and hasn't burned so much. The lid fits really well and doesn't come loose or fall off and when you pack it away it makes no rattling noise.

I love Crusader products and this is another one I'm really happy with.

A good little mess tin yes, but as to only been, "Weight: 87g", far from it at about 360g.

It is tuff, and true enough their is no rattle, (untill you put something in it, up to you).

The dimentions on the box when it came gave it as, "size: 175*125*60cm", this then would make it more of a bath than a mess tin, I would give this as "size: 175*125*60mm", near as dam it.

So yes a good tin, but dont like me get fooled on the weight. Also their is no bag for it, so you'll have to find your own.

Here's my review, hope it's not too boring but as it hasn't been done I've weighed and measured it for those interested.
Firstly all weights and lengths are as measured by me in UK imperial measurements and then in metric and will only be approximate.

Weight 12½oz (354gm)
Volume 28fl.oz (800ml)
Length 6¼" (159mm)
Width 4⅞" (123mm)
Height 2⅜" (60mm)
Height no lid 1⅞" (48mm)
The clip for the handle sticks out the back an additional ⅜" and the front by ¼"

It's a stainless steel mess tin. When I got it about five years ago the lid rattled and I had to bend the handle to hold the lid on tighter, no one else it seems had this problem so it was probably just mine.
It's a bit small for my liking really having a useable volume of about a pint, it's also a bit heavy and I use it now only for car camping. It's also a bit expensive. I also have a MSR stowaway pot 1.1 litre, Bigger/cheaper. Still like the crusader tin though.
If you don't want to use aluminium or worry about a non-stick coating scrubbing off or burning off because your fire is too savage or stretch to the cost of titanium then it's worth considering.
