Repro Italian / SS Trinkwasser 6L Can
These 6 liter Italian water cans are identical to the WWII issued water can that was used both by the Italians and later by the Germans. These are fairly recent production (maybe 1980's) and even have the correct wool covers. The only slight flaw with these is the shade of the wool cover and the plastic buttons rather than WWII Italian wood buttons.
Many SS units received large amounts of Italian gear after the Italians gave up and factories kept turning out equipment for the Wehrmacht and SS, although it seems the SS did receive more of it. I have found beat up original examples at a number of German flea markets so they were distributed farther than just Italy. These are economical, and practical trinkwasser bottles for reenacting. The smaller pour spout makes it far easier to fill canteens while still having a large opening for filling.
Photos of this in use by the Germans is rare but I know of at least one photo that exists and I am still trying to track down a copy. It is in one of the SS Gebirgsjäger books.
