    History

    In cold weather, just as in tropical heat, soldiers outdoors need continuous hydration. In sub-zero weather, the military-standard plastic canteen is virtually worthless. It freezes far too easily and has little ability to keep hot liquids at an elevated temperature. Metal canteens are just as bad, but do have the advantage that they can be heated directly on a stove. For these reasons, the U.S. military developed the one quart Arctic Canteen, with characteristics specifically tuned for cold weather operational requirements.

The Arctic Canteen originated in the early 1960s, and was used by Special Forces in Vietnam. It was made of corrosion resistant steel (CRS, or stainless steel), contained in a cover/carrier. A second design, Canteen, Water, Cold Weather, CRS was specified in Nov-Dec 1988.

Referring to the first design, the Arctic Canteen is a one quart round-body, double-wall vacuum bottle with a white silicone mouthpiece and white polyethylene cap. The cap is attached to a lug on the canteen neck by a nylon lanyard. The inner wall of the canteen is stainless steel, while the exterior is aluminum. The Arctic Canteen is marked alongside its neck with US, the manufacturer and the month and year it was produced.
