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The ALICE system has been replaced by MOLLE some time ago already, but you still see these in use by US and other armed forces on backpacks and combat belts.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.

Aika kivan pörheä karvatoosa. Napit toimii hyvin ja ehjässä kunnossa muutenkin. Pesin omani ihan koneessa kerran varmuudeksi, ei tietenkään mennyt miksikään. Mukana tulleet 2 US keeperiä olivat luonnollisesti vähän ruosteessa mutta toimivat.

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.
