East German Insulated Canteen (2-pack) – Authentic German Military Surplus
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.

I was very surprised of this product quality and the versatility of use. Was brand new and I am looking for now to give a " frezere field test " to see how will hold. Definitely its worthing to have on your outdoor gear or just for work. Thanks KS!
Great canteens for the money!
Review byNiodox Verified Buyer
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!
Review bySeth Verified Buyer
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!
Review byCol.K Verified Buyer
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
Review byShane Verified Buyer
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.
Da s goot great price from the past
Review byJoe Verified Buyer
Two for a great value & commie gear from failed state attest to capitalist pig like me. Robust construction like a T55 tank just for liquid refreshment you just can't beat. Workers of the World Unite or just go--- thirsty!!!
Can't beet this deal
Review byVictor Verified Buyer
These things are best for the money. Camping , bug out bag, take to work.
great canteen for the money
Review byJosh Verified Buyer
Where can you find a military-grade canteen for <$10 - much less a pair of them! These may not be the "sexiest-looking" canteens out there, but for the price, you cannot beat them. Having built-in insulation and no need for a separate pouch are great features - plus it even has it's own metal cup! The only downside is the strapping - they did go a little chintzy with that, but otherwise a well-made product!
Review byGlen Verified Buyer
Bought one of these on a whim, and ended up buying two more, was a great deal.
Review byDominic Verified Buyer
Very nice to use when camping, even when hunting. Can't beat the price and it's in good condition.
