    Would you rather have a hydration pack or canteens on a load carrier? Hydration pack can carry 2 - 3 liters. Center of gravity does not change. Can add extra webbing / MOLLE attachment locations, weight goes to shoulders. One quart canteens are standard, lots of military surplus, cheap...

That includes, stove (whether it be wood, gas or alcohol), pot set, bowls/canteens and mugs, and utensils that you use. And lets not judge one another's kits because we all have...

    With your experiences in hiking and wilderness survival, do you recommend a water bladder that's stored in your Molle/Backback or would you prefer to carry a water bottle or canteen? What are the pros and cons? Do the water bladder rubber hoses add a plastic taste to the water? Im thinking of...

    Putting together an H2O kit and want to use a 32oz canteen. From what I see, the two prevalent styles I see are the Nalgene plastic canteens and the stainless steel types with the most popular brands being Kleen, Nalgene & Guyot. I'd assume the stainless steel would be better in that it could...

    I put this as an answer to another thread but, I thought it was such a good deal I would put it here too. Here are some good links to the Swiss canteen, cup and stove kits. 3 pack for $9: 5 pack for...

    Can anyone recommend a good quality stainless steel canteen? Preferably one with a small cup as well, although not a necessity. I have one, but i'm looking to upgrade while I have the money.

    I know this thread is pointless:upsidedown:, but I had to let everyone know what a great deal I got on this canteen. I have GI canteen and cups <$10, stainless steel water bottles <$5 and have been looking at these Guyot bottles but I couldn't make myself spend $25 on one. I was in ****'s...

    Summer time is almost here, and so is the summer heat. It wont be long and the 90s and 100 degrees will be the norm, so lets take some time to review. Pace yourself - You should know your own physical conditioning, your not superman, so dont act like it. If you rush up a hill, get overheated...

    I'am thinking about getting a few more 32 ounce nalgene water bottles, or a couple of those 32 ounce nalgene canteens. Last year while my son, nephew and I were on a hot weather hiking trip, we did not have enough water with us. So I'am going to fix that problem this year. Besides hiking...

I wanted to start a new thread and get a group together working on the same style of bag. First item is the bag. I have a lot of stuff for my bag already. I will just...

    I was wondering if any of you knew how many fluid oz. the canteen cup holds. Do you think it would be enough if I had utensils, a plate, and the canteen cup for my cook set?

    My preferred style of canteen is the US Army style, though I really don't like that it's plastic. It makes the water taste terrible. I've been looking for a stainless steel canteen that's kidney shaped and finally found one. It's perfect except for one thing-it's only 3/4 the size. The...
