US Canteen: Ditch the Water Bottles!

In the past, when I heard the word "canteen" I thought of an Army guy chugging his water from some sort of camouflage vessel strapped across his chest. THEN, I was introduced to US Canteen. Who knew a canteen could be stylish? Obviously Victoria Meakin and Peter Bobley the creators of the line did! US Canteen provides an ultra sleek, ultra hip way for you to carry your water. As an added bonus, you'll be helping the environment by replacing your plastic water bottles with this super fun new accessory. Accessory? Yes, US Canteens are not just canteens, they're a hold all for your necessities as well. I received the chocolate brown Victoria canteen pictured here and I just LOVE it. Underneath the magnetic snap front closure is a pocket large enough to put my iPhone. The actual canteen easily fits in and out, and there is a zippered pocket on the back that can hold money, credit cards, an ID and even a tube of lipstick! A metal ring on the side allows you to easily attach your keys, so really, you could replace your purse for a little day trip or hike. The strap adjusts to fit your liking and trust me, you'll be liking!

US Canteen makes various styles of canteens and they are all so cool. With over 8 of them to choose from, you're going to have a hard time picking your favorite. Leather? Nylon? Canvas? Navy? Chocolate? Khaki? Good luck with that dilemma... Visit US Canteen today and purchase yourself a little gift. An item you never knew you needed, until you have one of your own.
