Academy Broadway 5 Piece Deluxe Scout Mess Kit ... Junk Kit

Pros:Above average overall.

Cons:Fry pan is junk.

The Bottom Line: Read and be informed.




Academy Broadway Five Piece Deluxe Scout Mess Kit to me is an above average mess kit that honestly is more so for light camping whether it be from a tent or car camping; however, for the sake of a fine point of improved quality control standards and better options I find the product to be of below average quality. (Buy a USA made mess kit.)


About This Academy Broadway Five Piece Mess Kit

It is a simple piece of camping gear that is of relatively good quality, but not as sturdy as what one would expect with a cost of about seven U.S. dollars to under seventeen U.S. dollars.


Thoughts on the Academy Broadway Five Piece Deluxe Scout Mess Kit

It may be of what the company or marketing team to call this "heavy gauge aluminum" that is "sturdy" but not to a degree where it makes a big or significant difference in being sturdy enough to endure rough handling. Personally I like my made in U.S.A. Mess Kit many more times over this over priced piece of (junk) camping gear (essentially), yet the overall build quality of above average when compared to cheapies of no name brand to speak of that are just throw aways.


Country of Origin

Academy Broadway Five Piece Deluxe Scout Mess Kit is made in China.


My Experience / Final Thoughts

Overall, my experience with this mess kit is somewhat satisfying as on occasion I find myself making adjustments to the frying pan rim, since it bends and flexes out of shape with very little force or nudge. The plate is very sturdy and ridgid. The little pot is more than sturdy enough for me (and others that have borrowed the little pot) for stews, soups, and roasting with my custom set up in it. If I had known how bad the fry pan would be to maintain, I probably would have spent the extra money on a titanium camping cookset. Now I am stuck with this Academy Broadway Mess Kit and considering scrapping the fry pan while keeping the rest of the kit. Do not be fooled by the fancy name and package (as fancy does not mean it is worth buying), let the products functionality do speaking for itself. Overall two out of five stars. Fry pan one out of five stars and rest of kit is five out of five stars.
