A nice little plastic canteen. If your water bottle fantasies do not call for a standard 1 litre (or quart) canteen, consider this option. A small mouth means easier drinking on the move, small volume means less weight to carry on your belt.

There was a time when a soldier had to do with a small water bottle, and everything else was weakness of the mind. There was an upside to all this; the water bottles were physically smaller and thus fit better to various pockets and pouches, almost like a hip flask. Maybe one could have a larger reservoir in the rucksack and carry this on the belt - if you're not into bladders, that is! Of course during winter a bottle does not freeze as easily as a bladder tube, hint hint.

Belt clip on the backside and a metal ball chain to keep the cap safe.

Used, maybe washed

These have been used and then sold off to the civilian market. All or at least some have probably been washed, maybe. As you probably guessed, wash before use - no machine washing! These are all in good serviceable condition for years to come - it's made so well that you could build a house with it, and then get into legal trouble after manhandling a burglar with it, but at least your bottle is still intact.

The Good-arrived in pristine condition.the leather
straps are even supple.
-Genuine Swedish Army Issue
dated Sept.1970 at the bottom
- Doesn't leak(the most important thing)

The not so good- been stored for several decades so
the surplus smell is nauseating.
- I gagged and wrecthed at the
strong taste of old plastic aka BPA.

Apart from that this is one reliable piece of kit that you can depend on and will serve you for many years to come.

A TIP: To get rid of that strong plastic taste put 3/4 warm water and 2 table spoons of baking soda.shake well and let it sit overnight.

Smells a little plasticky. Is that a word? Leather clip was soft,no leaks, great condition otherwise.
Going to try the baking soda to get rid of that SMELL/ problably taste too. Maybe some bleach.
Maybe try leaving some cheap vodka in it for a few days.

Quite a nice cantine, Production date June ´67.
Accordingly, it has quite a "plastic" smell to it.
Some scratches on the outside, but far from unuseable. "Fieldtested" suits better.
