This pouch is a handy way to carry the classic 1 quart USGI canteens which can be purchased on the cheap at surplus stores. To clarify, the canteen is not included. The back has a full set of PALS webbing to work with 5" Tac Ties or similar attachment systems. As an improvement to older designs, the bottom is mesh to allow easy drainage. Another solid feature is the SRB (buckle) female end is mounted directly to the pouch so it will always be in the same place. Since the cap holder protrudes from the cap, it may require some effort to release the canteen from the Y-shapped flap. Having the cap connector face forward helps this issue, otherwise just be aggressive with the flap and you will be fine. The main down side I had with my testing was that the flap tension was non adjustable, this is an issue since the flap was not tight enough to firmly secure my canteen. It was by no means going to come out of the pouch, however the canteen slightly bounces around during heavy movement.
