A genuine issue canteen and flecktarn pouch from the German Bundeswehr. The canteen is made from good ol' fashioned aluminium, not the plastic stuff you see today. Originally, these components would be part of the German Army 3-piece canteen set though they are perfectly functional by themselves.
The canteen has a volume of 0.75 litres and features a screw-on lid. This particular batch of canteens has done a good job of re-hydrating the troops—but at the cost of a few scratches, dents and possibly a broken tether. That being said, they'll still hold your water. Just be sure to give them a thorough clean first.
On the other hand, the flecktarn pouches are in good condition. The pouch is also suitable for the British 58 pattern water bottle or a US canteen. Attach this to a German harness system or pick up a German-to-ALICE adapter to secure the pouch to a wide range of gear.

With the first one I was sent. A&O was quick with solutions though!
Needed a good clean, but came in relatively good condition, the pouch is MINT. The Alice adaptor is also a good purchase.
If you dot like the plastic canteen bottles this might be the one for you. Slightly smaller bottle but wider neck than the plastic ones. The pouch is way bigger than the bottle so you should be able to cram in some folding hobo stove and utensils also. Tether was not attached to flask as the big rivet holding them together was worn. Should be possible to have sorted though.
So happy with this product. Excellent condition and even had the leather strap in tact. Thanks :)
Love this thing! The pouch is in outstanding condition. Canteen was corroded but with a little clean up it should do good
