Our G.I. style O.D. 1 Quart green plastic canteen is an exact copy of a military issue one, except you know where this one has been.
Over time, water purification tablets, beverage powders, cleaning detergents, and bleach start to break down the plastics in canteens. If the water from your canteen has a strange taste or if you have a missing or leaking cap.....its time to change that old canteen out for a new one.
Unlike some copies, the caps of these canteens include a new rubber seal, and both the cap and canteen rotate completely in the cap retention strap.
These fit all the same pouches, cups and holders made to accommodate standard issue 1-Quart kidney shaped canteens.
