I was issued old canteens that smelled like Ho Chi Minh had taken a leak in them himself (they were made in 1972!). These canteens, however, were very new and had clearly never been used. I would suggest them to anyone who needs a new canteen, plus they are really cheap!
Great Untility Canteen
These little rackals work great. Caps are solid and don't leak.
I received Brand New canteens. They are very nice, good quality, made in US, no odor smell like other imported products.
You can't beat the price for brand new canteens. Even not on mission, I take them backpacking. Freeze them and you have cold water all day. Good stuff!
Have bought many of these and they've all been stellar! Only thing is that the khaki ones are actually coyote brown/tan and not as light as they are in the photos. On some canteens, you need to use sandpaper on the opening as sometimes there are some sharp plastic bits left over from manufacturing
You should have ones
I do not want the ones issued by my supp, just because they were so dirty and stink. I bought two from here and I am very satisfied with the quality. Recommend!
Just like Uncle Sam gave you!
Everybody's favorite issued item, only no pro mask adapter cap. I'd make sure to get that as well.
These are excellent replacement canteens if you lose or damage an issued one. Also, as a side note, these do not support your MOPP gear (can not be used with M40 gas mask. You will need to purchase the caps separately. Item 26737. HOOAH!
