Finnish water bottle, ca 0,85 l, steel
A Finnish army experimental water bottle, used in the 80's. If you collect this junk, here's a chance to own a piece of something exotic.
The volume is about 0,85 litres, made of steel with plastic cap, a nylon pouch and belt loop and a clip for attaching the bottle to your kit. The belt loop can be opened, and the cap assembly pulled out together with the bottle itself, if you need to use it without the pouch.
Our informants told us this steel bottle was made to replace the old wartime model aluminium one but, rather typically for the Finnish army, this invention was somewhat obsolete when it was rolled out from the production line. These saw limited use in the 80's, and were then thrown into the warehouses when the plastic bottles were introduced, never to be seen again. Until now.
Used, but in nice serviceable condition. These might have some small dings and the covers might be patched up here and there. Other than that, these are perfectly fine, just remember to wash before use.

Pullo vaan pesuun astianpesukoneeseen, tule puhdas. Korkkia ei kannata koneessa pestä, se ei välttämättä kestä pesua, näin ainakin asiaan vihkiytynyt henkilö minua valisti.
Military equipment is traditionally excellent stuff; it combines durability with very affordable prices. Army surplus finds its way to the civilian market in the following way: the armed forces of one country or other decides to get rid of big batches of perfectly serviceable gear due to cuts in military budgets, said gear becoming obsolete or redundant or some other similar reason. Some of this stuff then finds its way to our storehouse, sometimes directly, sometimes through a third party. Every once in a while we even get random batches of collectibles and rarities from obscure corners of the world.
