Finnish Army current model canteen. A very practical water bottle with a large opening and a metal hook for carrying without a pouch. You know this piece of kit is pretty good because the soldiers don't complain about it.

This has a few advantages compared to its peers. First, the mouth is large and the threads too. This means the bottle is easier to fill, easier to clean and resists freezing a tad better while the cap screws on the right threads easily. Second, The rectangular shape makes this easier to pack and use in general. Third - it still is almost exactly the same general size of the classic US 1 quart bottle, so it fits in the same pouches (M56, ALICE and such).

As a funny tradition, this has a metal carrying hook on it. It's better than nothing, but not really THAT useful if you have a pouch.

Made by Plastex, made in Finland. These are made with strict quality control of proper plastic. If you need a solid, simple plastic water bottle, can't go wrong with this.

Some comments from our employee

Like many Finns, I got acquainted with this bottle in the army. Seen many others, I can say that this is probably overall the best one; solid, with nice boxy easily packable form and the cap screws on/off with ease. The big mouth helps with filling and keeping the insides clean. The rattling metal clip is maybe a bit pointless, but if really needed, you can hang this from it somewhere. Carrying by hanging the bottle from the plastic cap strap is a no-no, as it will pop open.

In my days we didn't have a separate pouch for this (in 2005!). Nowadays they're so spoiled and everything with the M05 system, oh everything was better back then and even better before that, mmm.

Nice bottle.
A better shape than the US & UK examples, so a better design for daily use - as the flatter sides mean it takes up less space than other types of bottle. Fits well in pack pockets & great in the car for spare water.
The metal clip "looks" flimsy, but as it's Finnish I have no doubt it will have been tested & be up to the job it is there to do.
Will be back for more, as I have no doubt that mine will be in demand once friends have seen it

Halpa ja toimiva vesileili. Omastani on kovan käytön vuoksi mennyt tuo korkin puloon sitova muovi fläpyskä mutta se ei käyttöä haittaa, täytyy vaan sitten olla tarkempi et mihin sen korkin heivaa kun sisältöön haluu käsiksi. Metalliklippi pitää leilin messissä vaikkapa farkkujen vyönauhassa jos ei mitään muuta kiinnityspaikkaa ole.

- omani löysin kirpparilta 50c hintaan ja johtuisiko juuri siitä, että tuo sangassa oleva tappi lähtee irti korkista, jota ei kannattaisi tiputella
- muutenhan tuo on muodoiltaan/mitoiltaan lähes jenkki-putelin veroinen

Pullon muotoilu on hyvä reppuun sullomista ajatellen, mutta korkin kiinnitys pulloon on paska - se ei kestä käyttöä kovinkaan hyvin, vaan irtoaa ennemmin kuin myöhemmin. Korkkia lukuunottamatta hyvä kenttäpullo ja mahtuu jenkkitaskuun myös jenkkipullon kupin kanssa.

Good form factor for stuffing inside a backback, but the cork attachment is shite and will break quite soon in use. Otherwise, a good canteen that also fits into the US ALICE canteen pouch, even with the canteen cup inside.

This canteen is far nicer than other plastic canteens. I used to have a US 1 quart when I went to army cadet summer training and they carry a horrible taste and smell, even before being used once. This canteen is compact and leaves little to no plastic taste in water. I can't wait to use this next time I'm camping.
