The Scepter Military Water Canister (MWC) is fielded globally with numerous military forces, included the U.S. and Canadian forces.
The MWC comes in two versions, 20 litre (5 gal.) and 10 litre (2.5 gal.).
Each has a uniform, single handle that, in the dark, prevents mistaking them for fuel canisters.
The large cap, the strap, the pouring spout and the breather cap are injection-moulded and fabricated from low-density polyethylene. The screw-cap is locked in the tightened position by means of a tab on the cap and strap assembly. Superimposed on the large cap is the small pouring spout, with its own cap, as well as the small breather cap assembly.
