Finnish M05 water bottle pouch
For the first time in the history of the Finnish army, the soldiers are actually issued a dedicated pouch for the water bottle. Takes the 1 quart US type canteen along with the more rectangular Finnish model.
The pull tabs are operated by yanking them slightly sideways. If pulled straight, they won't open up as easily. They can be secured pretty well (i.e. for a parachute drop) by running the additional plastic tabs through the loops beofre closing the two-prong main tabs.
Made of military grade cordura, with PU-coating on the inside. The quality is excellent overall, as should be expected.
Made by Finn-Savotta Oy
Founded in 1955 Finn-Savotta, or just Savotta, is known for their simplistic and extremely rugged designs. For decades Savotta has been the go-to supplier of hiking gear for the Finnish civilian market and combat gear and tents for the defence forces.
Today Savotta operates two factories, one in Karstula, Finland, where they make all their tents and metal components and one in Estonia where they do about 50% of their sewing.
