The earlier style canteen cups featured a fold under handle that while not as convenient to use as a cup, was actually quite useful if ever you needed to cook over a fire.

Many experienced attendees greatly prefer the older style cups for this reason.


Be aware that the cups were manufactured out of both Stainless Steel and aluminum. The stainless cups are a great deal easier to clean and are not as hot on the lips when drinking hot fluids. Avoid the aluminum versions of the canteen cup.
