Original US Army 2 quart canteens! Holds about two litres, collapses when empty and all in all a handy thing. Designed for Vietnam war and has seen use ever since.

Note! The pouch is a Korean (South?) made copy of the orignal US article. That said, it seems sturdy enough, not bad at all. The bottle is genuine American made stuff.

Vietnam War finally made US Army realize that a soldier might need more than one small bottle of water, and 2 quart canteens were introduced as a countermeasure. We've got no idea why not call these half galloners, but that's the US of A for you. While all previous canteens were rigid, this one is collapsible, rubber-like plastic, so it takes less space when empty. These were meant to be carried in rucksacks, but often saw belt use too. Before the introduction of MOLLE and it's general purpose pouches, 2 quart canteen pouches were often used as "stuff it all" bag for various big items without specific pouches of their own.

Both the parts are in very good condition, but you should definitely wash the bottle before use.

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.
