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

  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.

  Much more useful than I had expected and for not just making a cup of tea.

  You just can't beat these mugs. Bombproof, large enough for a single meal cook-up. What's to say. Fast delivery and decent price from Woodlore.

  I've heard how substantial the crusader cup is but I was still surprised how heavy duty it feels. Nests nicely with the Osprey water bottle. I was extremely pleased with how quickly the package arrived in Canada from the UK. Great addition to my kit.

  Great cup, used it for tea and soup so far. Can be used for pouring too with no spills. I even started using it at home.

  As expected, good all round use cup. Great size for warming drinks and works as soup or stew mess tin due to its generous size. Good handle design feels safe.

  I have had an eye on the British Crusader cookset for a while. I ended up buying the newer aluminum kit. Unfortunately the butterfly handles on the aluminum cup/pot were not well made. I am a former US soldier and still have my initial issue canteen cup, which has the ability to snap the butterfly handles together so they don't flap around or shift while pouring and sipping. Back to the British kit: I had to jerry-rig a metal pin in order to keep the handle 1, at the perpendicular from the cup, 2, to not shift around and potentially spill my precious liquid. Fast fwd to this steel cup. the original handle design was perpendicular and felt much more secure in my hand when pouring and drinking. I did however, make those handles absolutely bombproof locked in place by whittling a vertical pin to go into the top and bottom loops and having a horizontal pin to go thru the vertical pin and fit in between the gap made by the butterfly handles. These cups are bombproof by design and this has become my goto for Drinks, foods, lunches, soups, even holder of bolts and parts during a a tire tyre change. Everybody knows my cup. I have found civilian equivalents but nothing else really fits together in a packable package with the same bells n whistles like the crusader kits. From my experience the durability and handles are better on the steels cups while the bottom is easier to clean being a smooth bottom, compared to the aluminum handles that are just poorly made and the bottom is harder to clean with the raised bottom to add rigidity to the aluminum. I do really like the larger size of the aluminum cup but the steel is my go to around camp and even the house and outings. I am glad I bought this cup. larger than my US canteen cup, and better made than the BCB aluminimu version. Bombproof after figuring out the wooden toggle and pin trick, I threw it at the wall and ended up no worse. Hope this is helpful to someone. Drink water, Private.
