    That's the USGI Five Man Mountain Cook Set. Issued to ski troops and arctic outfits from 1942 to 1982 [if I'm not mistaken]. Many contractors made these. Fry pan is stainless, billies are aluminum.
    I got a used one made by SMC from Coleman's Surplus of Penn. for $19.99 last year. Could not pass it up.
    An Optimus 99 in a corduroy sack fits very neatly inside mine.
