Gerber, as part of their Bear Grylls Survival line, has come up with this update on the classic military plastic canteen.
Made now of BPA-free plastic with a textured grip enhancing and a securely locking leakproof cap. Fitted to the base is another classic military item: a fitted cup/cooking pot. Made of food grade aluminum, it holds about 8oz. The whole outfit comes fitted in a nylon belt-riding pouch. Also in the box is a Bear Grylls’ “Priorities of Survival” pocket guide.
Your testers have become leery of any plastic water vessels or aluminum cooking pots, and are not convinced that a stainless steel water bottle wouldn’t do both jobs better. Unless you’re going for the space-age military look.
