Finnish water bottle, 1 l

Finnish water bottle, 1 l

7.99 EUR

Finnish Army current model water bottle. A very practical canteen with a large opening and a metal hook for carrying without a pouch. You know a piece of kit is pretty good if the soldiers don't complain about it.

US 1qt canteen, Olive Drab, surplus

US 1qt canteen, Olive Drab, surplus

4.99 EUR

Issue US Army 1 quart water canteen. Probably one of the most ubiquitous water canteens out there. The same stuff has been issued since the M-1956 load bearing equipment came into use, and this is still going strong!

British Osprey canteen pouch, MTP, surplus

British Osprey canteen pouch, MTP, surplus

9.99 EUR

Just like the PLCE water bottle pouch, but MOLLE compatible, with QR-buckle and MTP camouflaged. Genuine army kit for cheap!

70's modernization of a design from the year 1910. Battle-proven, these still see use.

The ALICE pattern canteen pouch is over 100 years old in principle: it's based on the M-1910 canteen pouch. The biggest differences are that the exterior is nylon instead of canvas, and the attachment system is no longer the steel wire contraption, but proper US keepers, which are usually included.

The inside has a fuzzy faux fur lining and the bottom has a drain grommet. In hot climates the pouch is drenched in water, the lining soaks up quite a bit of it. As the water vapourizes, it keeps the contents cool for a longer time. Being an open-top design, the top and cap of the canteen remain outside while two snap-fastened flaps ensure the canteen doesn't fall out.

  • Nylon outer, artificial fur lined, the lining insulates the canteen
  • Two detachable metal keepers on the back, the pouch fits any belt under 55 mm wide and many backpacks have loops to hang these from
  • Small pouch on front for water purification tablets

Apart from the obvious US canteens, these will take many similar bottles, including the Finnish 1 litre model.

Is the ALICE canteen pouch history?

The ALICE system has been replaced by MOLLE some time ago already, but you still see these in use by US and other armed forces on backpacks and combat belts. A canteen is still a valid way to carry more water than a hydration bladder allows, and in case you need to clean a wound or just some shit from the eye, a canteen is more hygienic than a saliva-infested drinking tube.

Used US army surplus

These pouches are well used, some may have seen several wars. They might look a bit rough, but still do the job they are meant to.

- vika kappale, jonka sain tilattua, vaan ei huonossa kunnossa; langan päät poltettuani + kevyt pesu ja hyvä tuli!
- antaisin täydet viisi, mutta nuo keeperit aika marginaalisen tiukkoja (kuulunee asiaan?)
- suosittelen!

Nuoruudessani fillaroidessani paljon ostin tällaisen, aikaan ennen varustelekaa, kiinnitettäväksi tarakan kylkeen. Siinä se keikkuu vieläkin, ja säilöö jenkkien kenttäpulloa aina kun tulee lähdettyä polkemaan. Puhdistustablettitasku oli aktiivipolkemisaikoinani varsinaisessa käytössään.
