The canteen cover accommodates a one-quart canteen and a cup. The lining on the inside of the canteen cover should be kept wet during hot weather in order to help keep the water in the canteen cool. The cover should be kept dry during cold weather, however, as the lining material provides limited protection in preventing the water in the canteen from freezing.
The cotton duck canteen cover has either a pile or a felt lining and is attached to the pistol belt by means of two attaching clips which are located on the back of the cover.
