Swedish Army Trangia

Has the supply of these mess kits / cook sets all dried up?

I could easily find them in stainless or Aluminum once upon a time but haven't heard a word about them in well over a year.

Is anybody still using them (besides me?) Are they still available out there somewhere?

It's that time of year where I start stocking the car with supplies for the unexpected and this is one of those essential pieces of kit.

(Sick kids at home brings forward all sorts of mindless rambling...)  :)

Thanks for reading,

LOL! First one that comes up on eBay has a Buy It Now price of $75.

Maybe I should sell mine and start using some fancy Titanium instead. It'd be cheaper. :)

I looked for some of these about a year ago and never found one in the US at a reasonable price. I have a couple of Trangia stoves and one of their cook sets, but not the Swedish army one.
