This Romanian canteen and cup duo are similar in design to the German WW2 variant. A single leather strap and buckle secure them together firmly. The cup is equipped with foldout butterfly arms so you can safely hold a hot brew on a cold morning. As for hydration in the heat - the canteen sits snuggly in a felt snap dome pouch. Any excess water the cover absorbs will help keep the aluminum canteens contents cool.
An economic, old school canteen set for all kinds of activities such as hiking, hunting, camping or airsoft.

A welcome addition to those who collect or appreciate military surplus items, especially from the old school way. The condition mine, I would classify as being used/very good. The canteen can sit up right, made of thick aluminum. It feel very solid. It will hold about 800mg (28 ounces). The wool cover looks as if it was never issued. The leather strapping shows some minor wear. I did apply a leather preservative to it, to make it more water proof.
The only con/ negative is the cup. Compared to the more robust, heavy duty cups such as the iconic GI canteen cup, this one is much smaller and seems to be delicate. The metal is thinner and the handles are small. Another addition to my collection of mil gear.
