Quick Overview

Historically, human civilizations have settled near water sources. Why, you ask? Well, only because water is the most essential element to human health – and life in general. Don’t believe me? Here are a few interesting facts:


- The human brain is composed of about 70 percent water


- The lungs are made up of about 90 percent water


- Blood consists of over 90 percent water


Think about it. We use water constantly for drinking, sanitation, cooking, cleaning, transportation and recreation. It is used to extinguish fires and even as a scientific standard. Just try to survive more than a few days without water. All I can tell you is – good luck.


Now that the science lesson is over, it only makes sense to keep water handy. Since the smart decision is to be environmentally conscious, put a stop to your expensive disposable water bottle habit and think about purchasing a nice canteen.


Keepshooting.com now offers the East German insulated canteen. Designed to keep your hot drinks hot and your cold drinks cold, this canteen is an authentic military surplus item from East Germany that is built to last. With a cup that doubles as a spout cover, this canteen is a great alternative to more expensive containers.


As always, we’re ready to offer you an excellent price. For $9.95, you will receive two canteens – so drink up!

Details

Originally designed for military use, the East German insulated canteen is a surplus unissued item. Each canteen is in excellent condition and will hold approximately 32-ounces of your preferred drink. These plastic canteens utilize a screw on cap that provides a tight seal and ensures leak-free transport. They are covered by an olive drab, formed foam outer shell that serves as an insulator and is intended to keep your drinks hot or cold for hours at a time.

Another interesting feature on this canteen is the inclusion of a spout cover, which doubles as a cup. Made of metal, the cup is equipped with handles just in case your beverage of choice happens to be a hot one. It also makes this canteen ideal for sharing.

The cups are secured over the screw on caps using buckle closure straps that surround the canteen vertically and horizontally and form a belt loop on the reverse for easy transport.

The East German insulated canteen is perfect for any outdoor adventure. Since it comes in a 2-pack, keep one for yourself and give the other as a gift.

Consider this canteen for any of the following activities:

- Daily use

- Hiking

- Camping

- Survival

- Travel

- Extended hours of outdoor work

Did you know?

Though most modern canteens are made using various plastics, many early canteens were fashioned from numerous materials, including: hollowed-out gourds, leather and even animal stomachs and bladders.

Great canteens for the money!
The strapping on mine out of the bag was fresh and strong, had no problems sticking it on a belt to wander around with. Cup is held on securely and came dusty by in good shape. Under-rated how useful a small cup can be.

Insulation was intact and works quite well at keeping water cold. Canteen is also bouyant which is nice if you are filling up from a natural source for purifying or boating.

Plastic canteen itself has a bit of a smell to it. I did my usual mild bleach solution - rinse - baking soda - rinse clean out and it got the bulk of it out. Based on the age of the plastic I would not put hot drinks in them. BPAs not a huge concern as I tend to drink and replenish relatively quickly.

Overall, a great buy and I am highly considering another pair so I can keep one with pretty much every backpack I own. More water on the person is never a bad thing.

Tastes nasty, works well!
Mine smelled horrid but the stench will clean out with a good soaking.

If you're worried about BPA this isn't for you but if you like solid and functional military gear or are an NVA collecter, buy this now!

Interesting canteens
I first saw this canteen configuration in Vietnam being carried by the NVA from the communist Chinese.When I found it here at Keep Shooting,and in new condition,I knew I wanted it.I've used it in my kayak,and I found it useful,since it floats if it falls overboard.
Great price for these two rather odd canteens......

A bit rusty but they're good
One came with a bit or rust, the other was in like-new condition. I'm not sure if the insulation material leeches from hot drinks but I use it often just to carry water. Does the job well.
