Includes One (1) Used Steel 1984 Arctic Canteen
In cold weather, just as in tropical heat, soldiers outdoors need continuous hydration. In sub-zero weather, the military-standard plastic canteen is virtually worthless. It freezes far too easily and has little ability to keep hot liquids at an elevated temperature. Metal canteens are just as bad, but do have the advantage that they can be heated directly on a stove. For these reasons, the U.S. military developed the one quart Arctic Canteen, with characteristics specifically tuned for cold weather operational requirements.
The Arctic Canteen originated in the early 1960s, and was used by Special Forces in Vietnam. It was made of corrosion resistant steel (CRS, or stainless steel), contained in a cover/carrier.
Previously issued and all components are fully functional. May have name or other markings, but there are no rips or tears and no broken buckles or zippers. Good to Very good condition.
