The one quart Army canteen has been the primary water storage system for infantry for over 60 years. Even with the advent of portable water bladders, the canteen remains to be the most reliable system and is often carried in addition to water bladders as a back-up. The rounded kidney shape allows the canteen to hug your waist closely, which makes it easy to maneuver with while still keeping it within arms reach. DGI tested these with orange juice, cranberry juice, powdered drink mixes, and beer... none of these left an after-taste.
The Nalgene Canteen also nests with our GI Canteen Cups, Hard Anodized Canteen Cup Stands, and Heavy Cover Lid to make the most versatile, compact, easy to carry, cookware/hydration system on the market.
