DOES NOT Include Canteen!

This is the standard issue canteen/general purpose pouch used in the US Military. This style of canteen pouch, with updates every so often, has been around for around 100 years now. So it works pretty well. It securely holds a USGI 1 Quart Canteen and Canteen Cup with an adjustable strap that wraps around the shoulders of the canteen. When that strap is placed through the flap on the pouch the pouch turns into a good general purpose pouch for holdings small items, like NVGs. The opening on the pouch can be tightened down with the adjustable shock cord. On the sides of the pouch are small pockets for holding water purification or other small items, like batteries. This will mount pretty much anywhere, so long as it’s MOLLE webbing or something MOLLE compatible.

    I ordered 2 of these in supposed defective condition. They appear almost new ( with the exception of 1 that’s missing it’s drawstring, but I can fish some paracord in there or go to a fabric store and get some elastic cord to fix that, or even a boot lace. So about a dollar or 2 and a couple of minutes to fix it, as the barrel locks are in place ). These pouches can carry a lot more than what you would think. Main compartment and 2 side pockets expand to fit a nice survival kit, or any number of items you want closely at hand. If you don’t mind the pouches being open topped, they will carry 4 to 5 30 round AK mags, with the drawstring cinched to keep them in the pouch. Very good product and excellent service. Most places list these pouches at $10 each, Venture Surplus gave me 2 for $6

    Ordered one BDU/used and two Multicam/defective. BDU one looks like it was never issued. Both Multicam ones have fading and are missing one snap, however they cleaned up nicely and hold onto a web panel just fine. Will probably pick up a few more for GP Pouces.

    Just received my ACU defective canteen pouch today and it looks brand new. No defects,rips or malfunctions. Super fast shipping. Great company!
