Great bucket for truck and camping locker.
Good quality, very sturdy and good size, about 2 gallons? Handle is strong and comfortable and the whole things packs down compact.

I filled it up on a 90º day at 5,200 feet elevation with no wind, set it on a stump in the shade, measured the depth, set a stopwatch and then measured loss at intervals. Mine leaked about 20% in the first hour, then slowed down to where it was about half full at four hours and still a bit in there the next morning.

I take it car camping, fill it up at the stream, lake, or campground water spout, and set it near the campfire for emergency and wash-up. Looks pretty cool too.

Update field review!
I just had last weekend this "French Canvas Water Bucket" up on Mt Hood and I was more then impress with this piece of the history. Once the canvas will get soak in the water you will have just light water dripping from the bucket. I left over night a almost full bucket with water hanging on my truck hitch ( yes, its fitting just perfect and you can look after pictures too.. ) and in the morning the water in the bucket was about 2 inch or so above to middle of the bucket. I am looking forward to get few more and use them on my wilderness survival classes for water filtration and fire building .. . The robust build its a guaranty for me that will hold in any hands...

A great canvas water bucket to have for camping, hiking, keeping in your car or just for the historic value!
I got lucky and I got a brand new one! I am more then happy with this French canvas bucket and I am looking forward this weekend to give a field test and in two weeks to bring the bucket on my wilderness survival workshop and to recommend to my students too.
Its a law here in East Oregon on high fire season to care a bucket with you in the woods and this bucket will be just perfect for a family that don't have enough space for extra gear in their truck.... A bucket for each member of family and you can have a squad of Wildland Firefighters :)

Great work Bucket
These are tough canvas, one was dated 1952! I had ordered 2, one was in great shape, the other has some fuzz texture to the outside of the canvas as if used? Both are great for what I'm using them for, buckets to haul tools in, work great and cannot beat the price!
