Just for a little info, these kinda suck as canteen covers. The canteen is really hard to get in, and then the velcro just barely touches the other part. The release buckle is about all that holds it all together. And then the buckle is really hard to release. I had to put it in front of me, and try 2-3 times to unfasten it. Not something you can do with it on the side or back of vest.
I am going to use these for something else and buy different canteen pouches.

Thanks for the heads-up...I had been seriously considering ordering two of them.

It is not at all uncommon for other mfr's––even first-tier mfrs–– canteen/utility pouches to run a tad small


UCP/ACUPAT too, and generally cheap, cause its not cool anymore.

The smallness of the pouch didn't bother me that much, but having to use both hands and a extra effort to remove and replace canteen, is to much when wearing a vest or other LBE. I seriously doubt it can be done one handed. Which means the vest or LBE would need to be removed to get a drink.

I got the fix it. Bought some alice adapters for my vest and going with old style canteen covers.
