"Nice Canteen, Couple dings, but still watertight. I like that the whole shebang fits in the supplied pouch. Can't really spoon soup out of the Canteen, but you could still dump it into supplied cup. Awesome buy, Awesome price!"

"Cup is worth the $. Genuine surplus, find this somewhere else. Give all of the pieces a SOS pad and some elbow grease and U have a decent field water/food setup. Will buy more just for the cup. v"

"Fast delivery. Mine was a 1992. A little gunky, but very great shape. A little degreaser, some steel wool, came out fine. Cup was very nice. Cover needed some washing. Very pleased."

"I got mine this morning. Bigger than I expected, but not huge. Mine was engraved with a name from the French military, which was surprising to me, but very cool. Overall great product"

"As stated by another satisfied customer, the cup alone is well worth the $. I purchased two of these sets. Both of the canteens have wear consistent with extended use (scrapes, minor dings) but these things are real solid. Both of mine were from 1987. The cups weren't the same. One from 1984 had an obvious dent at the bottom, but it's only cosmetic and doesn't hinder it from standing upright. The other doesn't have a date, but is obviously newer. Both of the covers were different. One had an inner wool lining, while the other didn't have that and didn't fit as snugly. Overall, it is a great deal. I'd have given it five bullets, but the dent in one cup and the non-matching covers prevented me from doing so. Still, definitely worth every penny."

"This is a real quality surplus at a bargain: its got the wide mouth per description*, but it is not mentioned that these are 1.5l capacity - that's a hefty capacity for the price. The aluminum is stout for both the cup and the canteen; it is definitely pre-used with dings and scuffs, and I was able to clean the inside with baking soda no problems. The pouch has the clip that'd fit on a alice>molle adapter (or any belt with standard eyelets) no problems; I was worried that the French might have used an incompatible connection.*it'd fit a standard-sized spoon but if you got the four piece German utensil set (also from CtD) that auxiliary entrenching tool they call a spoon will not fit through the mouth."

"Niiiiiiiiiiice!Way better than the American plastic surplus ones. Some black marks and stuff, these scrubbed off real easy with a steel wool. Direct copy of the older American ones, complete with cup (perfect for coffee or tea). I am sending away for TWO more, cup alone is worth the price."

"Have you researched a good canteen that you can put in the fire to boil your water? The prices are absurd. Folks, this is the DEAL!! Cup is great as well. PERFECT for bugout bag, camping, etc. GET TWO LIKE I DID!!"

"I purchased three of these canteens. All in good condition, different manufactures on each. I like that typical storage smell. Now soaking in Febreze odor eliminator. The canteens and cups were polished with SOS pads and look great now. The rubber washers in the caps are old and deteriorating. They can be easily replaced. I'm very happy with this purchase. Another great surplus item from CTD."

"I bought two of these, along with two of the modern canteens. These are backups in the event that the modern ones break down. These are heavy duty, sturdy, aluminum canteens with a good carrying capacity (1.5 liters). I received two different brands, and one has a nice dent in it (good way to keep track of ownership!). The covers are in good condition, without even names or initials on them. I'm not sure I would cook with the canteen, being that the Bakelite caps probably wouldn't appreciate it. The cups are great and can be used as pots. They even have a one-cup measuring mark on them. On one of the canteens, the gasket needs to be replaced, but that isn't a big deal. I am very happy with my purchase and would definitely recommend these puppies!"

"Great deal, I bought two. Some things to help you decide: cheap (duh); clearly been used (canteen Grade 2-3, canvas Grade 1-2); old, with factory markings (good or bad); 1.5 liter capacity; smells like it's been sitting around for a while in a box (you know that smell); one out of two of the seals was cracked. Overall, it's a great deal if you collect or if you are looking for something practical for a BOB or camping. I wouldn't pass this up."

"Yes they're old, used and been around the training course, but they're solid, and you won't be able to beat the price."

"For this price you absolutely cannot go wrong. The canteen holds more water than the standard plastic USGI canteen. You can heat water/soup/food in the cup that fits nicely on the bottom of the canteen, and the handles on it are sturdy. Also, the canteen cover is an excellent piece of equipment by itself. It fits perfectly, is very sturdy, and is lined with wool so that you can wet it in hot weather and it will cool your canteen contents by evaporation. It will also keep warm liquid warm in the canteen. However, I am not one for putting anything but water in a canteen. The chain linking the cap to the canteen is strong and permanent. It's a nice feature.The rubber gaskets do leak, but I think they will be easily replaced. The water in the canteens has had a \"metallic\" taste to it so far, but not so strong that it bothers me.An excellent bargain, and CTD shipped them to me very fast."

"Received these quickly! Needed to replace gaskets in lid but got them at Home Depot. A few washings with a Brillo pad, soap, and 409 and they look and work like new! Holds more than the average US issued canteen. Great canteen cups also! For the price, you should buy several for your bug out bag."

"As others have said they're worth every penny. I got two and wish I had got more. They need to be cleaned before you use them. I soaked the inside in vinegar for a day then ran it through the dishwasher. Water tastes just fine out of it and it holds a bit more then the average canteen. Plus the cup is very handy. I keep one in my car and one in my wife's."
