These are also completely new. The model 81 has a sawback blade. One of the most versatile items issued in the NVA, although patterned more like the Soviet model. Or the Great War model, depending on your historical preferences. A Czech issue aluminium canteen with a felt cover and leather straps. Mostly communist era stuff, these were probably used from the 50's to the 90's.
Looks like it came from the same design table as the German Wehrmacht water bottle, but certainly isn't identical. This drinking system has it all; a "modern" plastic bottle, a practical pouch and a lovely grey cup. Used until the fall of the Wall. The UTV model which didn't differ that much was meant to replace this but never had a proper chance before it all came to an end. News About us Registered customers Varusteleka banners.

Trouble with the metric system? These might also interest you. Bought it for the cover and cup, the canteen I will be recycling. It's probably full of BPA and sadness, neither of which am I interested in ingesting.
The cover and cup are cool, and should fit over most other canteens of a similar size. The cup may not nest well, though. Review is wildly obscene or completely irrelevant. Reviewer has not actually used the product he is reviewing. If you strongly disagree with this review, please press "I disagree" button above. Unlike the other guy, I'm using the canteen itself and not using the cup.
The paint on the cup chips off kinda easy and I don't trust the low grade aluminum though I've used it a couple times in a pinch without too much issue. The other guy seems to have more luck with his cup, mine might just be from a shittier batch, or I'm being a weenie. The bottle works, if yours has a yellow plastic insert under the cap pop it out, it'll stain your water yellow and shatter on it's own if you try to clean it.
It's probably a shitty watertight seal, just hand tighten it as much as you can, I haven't had any leaks since. Cup sits crooked, they didn't calculate for their own buttons when they arranged the system, you can force it to work but it'll scratch the paint off the buttons into the cup.
I took a pair of pliers and yanked the second button from the top entirely off. Cover didn't rip and now the cup can sit evenly without getting black paint rubbed onto it. Great price but I wish the listing said there's a good amount of rust on the metal parts, the raindrop cover got stained a bit from it too. I'm sure some light steel wool and washing would fix it up.
Excellent value for the money! I bought a bunch and all were clean. I have also noticed 2 variations each for the bottle and the cover. The cap is connected to the bottle by a chain in the early models and by a plastic arm in the later ones. Presumably the rattle of the chain against the cup lead to the change.
The cover comes in an early 4 button model and a later 3 button model. The change in cover seems to predate the change in the bottle. The 4 button version can cause the cup to sit crooked when attached. The 3 button model has wider spacing and solves the problem.
If you have the 4 button cover and would like to correct the crooked cup issue, try this before "yanking the second button off" with pliers as suggested above. Slightly squeeze the long sides of the cup together at the rim. This will make the cup slightly thinner and a bit wider. This should allow it to clear the button, though it may sit slightly higher. I have yet to experience the yellowy water caused by the cap liner that some have mentioned, but I don't use them much.
Rather than removing the liner, I gave each liner a thin skin of silicone. Problem addressed before it started. A good piece of history.. It came with a little bit of rust in some buttons , and the cup is damaged, misses the handle and the retainer of the strap but the strap holds it anyway.. The cup was full of dried coffee stains! If i added some hot water i think i be able to make another one! The bottle was ok but with some dirt in it, nothing that a good wash cannot solve..
Overall its a nice canteen for the price! Another one for the collection! Works great, just make sure to clean it thoroughly and remove the plastic thing inside de cap, it makes the thing smell weird and it will end up disolving into the water. Bought a number of these, all came brand new. Looking to keep the cup with my crusader mug for that espresso moment and use the bottle as a mega meths bottle for my trangia.
