This standard Soviet issue water bottle has stayed more or less the same since the times of the Great War, and is still going strong! No pouch included with these.

A very simple aluminum canteen. Volume probably 0,85 litres. The colour is a special Soviet blend of greenish brown with a hint of mud and despair, left untreated on the inside of the bottle.

Usage

Even though the bottles would be issued to Soviet soldiers as is, the European Union probably thinks these are not fit for drinking purposes. If you happen to consider using it as an actual hydration bottle, we have some tips for preparing it before first use:

  • 1. Fill the bottle with sand and shake it for about 5 minutes. Pour the sand out.
  • 2. Wash the bottle and fill it again with water containing baking soda. Let sit for the night.
  • 3. Pour the water out and wash the bottle with regular bottle brush, rinse afterwards.
  • 4. The bottle is now ready for use.

Condition

Although most of these appeared unissued, it might come with dents and scratches and other marks of long storage. We do recommend cleaning before use.

Löytyy mokoma koska keräilen neuvosto tavaraa, todella kurja juttu, hikoilee vettä ihan jumalattomasti, ei pysy itsekseen pystyssä, ketku tulee irtoamaan korkista näinä lähikertoina, ja kolhuuntuu pelkästä tiputuksesta, ilman taskua en keksi tälle mitään käyttöä, mutta varalle nykyiselle on hyvä ostaa kun halvalla saa.

Hyvä ja kestävä kenttäpullo. itsellä löytyy näitä 3, jossa yhdessä on aito NL:n kenttäpullotasku 60-luvulta.

The Item was in good condition, and very useable. However, it was date stamped 1992, which makes it impossible to have been a true Soviet used canteen. A real let down from a collector stand point. Perfectly functional as a canteen however.

Awesome, came brand spanking new. No chips on the paint or funk in the canteen. Beware, there are aluminum flakes so give these a good wash.

Well made canteen, the paint can come off of the chain easier than the rest of the canteen, and there's a small bit of unpainted area on my cap, but it works just as well as I needed it to. very few scratches and black stamp on the back appears to be partially missing, but no problem for me. Good product, gets the job done and fulfills its purpose well.

I have two of them. One has a stamp date of 1955, and the other 1992. Both were in very good condition Again, when you buy military surplus, you pay your money and take your chances. I'm very happy with.

Army surplus

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.
