Gear Review – Overmont Camp Kettle Coffee on a Budget

Overmont Camp Kettle

The overmont camp kettle is a budget offering found on Amazon, it looks the part, it’s designed for camping but is it any good?

As part of rebuilding our camping equipment setup a kettle is high on the priority list, a coffee first thing in the morning is crucial for the overlander [or tea in the case of my better half] and the kettle is without doubt one of the most used items in the camp kitchen.

Replacing a full range of camp kitchen gear can be a costly business if done all at once so to get us out and on the road we are approaching the task with budget in mind until we can gradually upgrade later.

So how does it perform? The Overmont camp kettle has a slightly thickened base however it boils a liter of water in around 5 minutes on the gas ring. Would we use it on the camp fire? At a push, perhaps but in general we think that this kettle is best suited to light use on gas. Compared to our old camping kettle which withstood all manner of abuse this one is unlikely to fair as well but for less than €18 euros is does the job.

CHEAP CAMPING KETTLE

Conclusion:

A nice little camp kettle that will get you started camping or overlanding for a good price, it comes in a handy carry net, is easy to use and for two large cups of coffee the capacity is just right, it fills two Sea to Summit Delta mugs in one boil.

Where to buy? – Amazon, the product descriptions on Amazon are a bit sketchy but don’t let this put you off, the reviews, in the main, are very good. A great starter camp kettle to get you out and about fuelled with coffee.
