Abstract:

At the request of US Army Alaska, the US Army Land Warfare Laboratory initiated a task to design and develop a canteen which would provide troops with drinking water in extremely cold temperatures. The problem of dehydration is as critical in a cold environment as in a hot environment. In a cold environment troops do not feel the need for water even though they perspire. The canteen under development is a two qt flexible canteen which provides the user with a continuous supply of drinking water. The attached sip tube allows the user to drink while moving. The two-shell concept is lightweight, durable, comfortable to wear and does not interfere with other equipment.
