Soviet canteen with cover, unissued
These might also interest you
Soviet webbing belt, rubberized, surplus
A brown rubberized(!) 45 mm wide combat belt with a metal buckle. This is the general issue combat belt even in today's Russian armed forces, an unbeliveably sturdy piece of kit!
CCCP enamel mug, surplus
A classic enamel cup - these are extremely robust Soviet army stuff. Although bombproof, these do have that good ol' Soviet feel to them, with a slightly crappy paint job and factory dirt of course.
Czechoslovakian canteen with cover and straps, surplus
A Czech issue aluminium canteen with a felt cover and leather straps. Mostly communsit era stuff, these were probably used from the 50's to the 90's. Looks like it came from the same design table as the German Wehrmacht water bottle, but certainly isn't identical.
The standard Personal Hydration Complex, with Belt Device! This model has stayed more or less the same since the times of the Great War, and is still going strong!
A very simple aluminum canteen with an equally simple pouch. Volume probably 0,85 litres. The colour is a special Soviet blend of greenish brown with a hint of mud and despair. The belt loop can be opened, which is a subliminal socialist way of communicating that you should be as flexible to the demands of the state as well.
Might come with dents and scratches and other marks of long storage, but these are still unissued. We do, however, recommend cleaning them before use.
If you want a good canteen buy something else, this really is for collectors.
