Bamboo Canteen Features and Usage

It may seem like bamboo is "a new trend" today for all the unique applications it can be applied to. However, people have been using bamboo for hundreds of years. This bamboo canteen dates as far back as the late 1930's to mid-1940's and used by the Bulgarians throughout World War II.

Bamboo helps collect the condensation and keeps the contents of the canteen cooler for longer periods of time. The screw on aluminum lid is lined with a cork to provide additional exposure to outside temperatures. This allowed for soldiers to keep water and other liquids cool while in battle.

Each WWII Bulgarian Bamboo Canteen is part of our collection of genuine military surplus. These WWII canteens are in great condition for their age. Browse Coleman's Military Surplus today for more military mess kits and supplies and camping equipment for sale.
