The Swiss M84 Canteen is a complete drinking system from the Swiss Army. Originally adopted in 1984, this canteen saw service for over two decades before being replaced by the current generation canteen system. Consisting of two parts, one being the nearly one liter plastic canteen and the other being the aluminum cup that nests at the base of the canteen.
We have sold many various canteen systems over the past decade and this M84 Swiss Canteen stands out. One of the best features is the high quality aluminum canteen cup that is included. The butterfly style handle is large enough to be held comfortably and the canteen cup holds about a standard coffee cup full of liquid. This ensures a more enjoyable experience when pouring yourself a drink from the M84 canteen.

I've handled these as well as the earlier aluminum model. These are much less clanky and a little more ideal in the field.
The drink spout is actually a little hard to use, as it's intended for use with a gas mask drinking tube. If you have a swiss mask, this is a bonus! Don't know if it's compatible with other models though.
