Aluminium Billy Can 1.65L

Army and Outdoors



Billy cans (sometimes called billy tins, billy pots or simply, a billy) are lightweight cooking pots, shaped like metal buckets. These utensils are usually used outdoors, for carrying or boiling water and making tea. It's accepted that the name came from large cans that were used for transporting bouilli or bully beef on Australian ships. After transport, those large cans were modified for boiling water.

This billy is the perfect piece of gear for anyone interested in the outdoors. The aluminium material is beneficial for any adventurer. Still compact and lightweight enough to attach to a hiker's pack and not compromise weight. It's also a great addition to any camper's kit, offering a convenient way to boil water and heat drinks in.
