    Where is the best/cheapest place to get a crusader mug?
    Not the Teflon coated one and preferably new.

    Cheers

    I was thinking about a plain one as i thought the teflon coating would wear on the black one .
    No problems with yours?

    I've hammered mine over the last year or so and it's still mostly black. I've used metal spoons in it and scourers on it and it's standing up well to it.

    If I was to replace mine I'd get another black one.

    adi, was there a bad taste with it? I got a black one and it tasted awful, even after several boils...

    Rapidboy we use a SS mug with wire handles but it is not the same shape as the one that goes at the bottom of a canteen. Does it need to be that shape?
    Or can it be round like a coffee mug? They go for about $7.oo CDN Is this an option?
    just a thought

    That looks like a good cup. I don't know if I'd like the teflon added or not, but it does have it's fans.

    Carcajou, your cup sounds like a Coleman SS cup. I carry one in my shoulder bag and for as little as it costs, it's a great cup to have on the trail. I've even used it for digging while panning for gold in the Sierra Mtns.

    Myself, for water carry when wearing a ruck, I prefer the US issue canteen package w/cover, canteen and canteen cup. Since they all nestle together and hang on a belt, it free's up room in the ruck. Going to add the canteen stove/stand which nestles with the other gear, which will free up my Esbit stoves for smaller kits.

    Probably go with the crusader as it will fit over my bottle and work well with a hex stove (never had any luck with hex stoves but have a couple coming and thought the crusader cup might work better than standard mess tins).

    If you did want to consider a teflon one, SASS are doing them for £9.99 at present, quite a good buy:
