The BCB NATO Crusader Cup is one of the fundamental pieces of kit to have with you when out camping and is great to use in combination with the Osprey NATO Water Bottle. The Crusader Cup comfortably sits on top of the Osprey Water Bottle for transportation.

Please note, historically the BCB NATO Crusader Cup used to fit on the bottom of the Osprey NATO Water Bottle but over many years the size of the bottle has slightly increased.

Being stainless steel means that it is more durable and also fire-resistant, making it suitable for heating drinks or cooking food directly over campfires or on a stove, such as the The Honey Stove.

The metal handle on the rear of the mug is hinged to allow it to fold back around the mug itself, helping to reduce the pack size.

  • High-grade stainless steel
  • Volume: 750 ml
  • Internal measuring scales
  • Dimensions: 13.7 x 10.2 x 10 cm
  • Weight: 290 g

  Thanks for stocking the Crusader cup and the seamless purchase and delivery. I've wanted to get hold of one for years, an excellent, trustworthy piece of kit we used to use during my military service. You could stop an RPG with one these, cook up your scran and finish off with a brew. Brilliant! Thanks guys, love your website too.

  Crusader Cup is an extremely well designed canteen cup. The stainless steel is much thicker and durable than similar cups. The volume graduation marks are stamped in and won't wear away like like the etched markers on other cups. The folding handles are large enough for gloved hands and keep your fingers well away from the hot cup body. The Nato Osprey water bottle is very stiff fitting in the crusader cup, this is easily remedied by filling bottle with hot water to soften the plastic then pushing the bottle into the cup. Empty out the hot water and fill with cold water while the bottle is still inside the cup to set the shape and the bottle will then slide in and out crusader cup with ease.

  Classic Crusader stainless steel mug, best price around, good quality and arrived in good time too. My only gripe is that it is too small for my Osprey bottle.

  This cup is very simple (as cups tend to be.) but great quality and a nice size for a big brew or even cooking in. Great to be able to put it in the fire without fear of melting. I can see it lasting for many years to come!

  This mug may not be the lightest but it is strong and reliable, Built for military use and nests on top of the NATO osprey water bottle. If you want a mug/cook pot that is dependable you wont go far wrong with this. Its my 'go to' bit of kit. Works great with a crusader stove or on a fire. I would recommend getting one of the aluminium lids that are available separately rather than the plastic BCB lid.

  As an American I am a big fan of the US GI canteen cup. However, my go to is the Crusader cup. It has measurement markings and slightly higher volume. It's tough as nails and the shape is a bit more versatile for meal making. I'm very pleased with Woodlore for sending this in a timely manner and packing my shipment with care. Good job.
