Good point - but a camping pot would work as a container for a survival kit

I've been looking and seems like a Klean Kanteen (widemouth, 18 oz) might be the best thing I've seen. It is stainless with a plastic lid. Most of the stainless bottles I've seen have a piece of plastic pressed onto the bottle opening with the threads cut into the plastic. Try cooking in these and your threads melt. The Klean Kanteen has the threads cut into the metal.

Definately not a pocket kit but I think I could assemble a "kit in a bottle" that has some high quality gear and a container that doubles as cooking pot and then carry it in my pack.

Still looking for that pocket kit container though.

Hey Miner, we think alike.

I cut the top off a 500ml thin-walled stainless steel bottle, put a wire bail on it and used the container to hold the Shelter Component in my Winter PSK.

Pictures of the kit and use in the field can be found in this post from last winter.

The thin metal was hot and a little sharp against my mouth but it worked OK. I would rather have a rectangular shaped tall pot as it would be flatter in my pocket, but this cylinder shape is useable because it is fairly small in diameter.

Still searching for the perfect PSK container.

My best idea is to carry a pocket kit and a metal water bottle.

Is the Kleen Kanteen single or double wall? Their website doesn't mention either.

Susan,

When I purchased my Kleen Kanteen, last year, they came in both single and double walled. I went with the single wall, so I could in an emergency boil water in it. Since then I also purchased one of the guyot stainless bottles, that also can stand-up to a fire. I like several things about the guyot bottle better. Wholesale sports in Lacey carries the guyot.

A couple or three stores around here carry Klean Kanteen and they have both the single walled and double walled. I like the single walled for my purposes but no one around here has the 18 oz size I covet. I need to get online and get one ordered but maybe I better visit the Guyot site first. Any chance of getting some elaboration on the advantages of the Guyot design? Thanks

First off the Guyot is 32 oz which is the exact size for the Katadyn Mircropur tabs that I carry, I don't think the Klean Kanteen makes a one litter bottle. Also the Guyot just feels more substantial to me and I really like the cordage system on the bottle for securing it to gear. Both are really nice bottles, for me the Guyot just fits my system better.

Thanks rebwa,

I found the 18 oz Klean Kanteen locally tonight so I bought it. I think it is the exact size I want for my kit. Also fairly light weight. I guess if I switch to a stainless water bottle, I'll look closer at the Guyot.
