TBS 750ml Stainless Steel Billy Can Cup with Bail Handle, Lid and Stove Unit
It is made from super strong 304 gauge Stainless Steel and has a well fitting lid that not only reduces boil time it stops anything falling in. It also has regular handles to be used as a mug/canteen cup and has a removable bail handle which is not only great for collecting water it is ideal for hanging over an open fire.
There is also highly useful volume graduations up the inside of the cup which are stamped into the steel rather than etched in. Stamping is a far better process to do this as, over time, etched variants will wear off rendering them useless.
This product will also fit on the base of a TBS 1 Litre Stainless Steel Bottle, 40oz Klean Kanteen water bottles, 1 litre GSI Bottles and regular Nalgene type bottle which offers excellent space saving in your pack. The TBS Billy Can Cup is just cut above other products on the market as it has better and more inclusive features. Other products may be a little cheaper but that is simply because they are not made to the same specifications and have as many features.
The stove stand is ideal for cooking by simply lighting a fire underneath or combining it with a trangia type alcohol burner. The stove unit simply slips onto the base of the cup for easy transport or storage.

I never normally write online reviews, but I am today because more people should leave reviews for TBS’s own brand gear - these guys clearly have the knowledge and experience to know what a difference each little feature can make. A really well designed piece of kit - nothing added that’s not needed, but it’s the attention to the little details - from the stamped measurements to the shape of the handle on the cup - that make this such a good product, and the price is really competitive too. I’ll definitely be getting more of TBS’s kit, but if (like me) you spent a few months weighing up whether to buy one or not, I’d say go for it and you’ll be really impressed.
