      Even better than military grade

      I wouldn’t have thought the Swabian fuel can could improve on the NATO design, which copied the German design after WWII. But the attachable spout makes it more convenient and EPA compliant. All my other portable fuel cans are plastic (except for an old NATO can) and they drip when pouring, sometimes from the threads holding the spout and sometimes just because they are ungainly.

      Very pleased with Wavian

      Vast improvement over my other Chinese Jerry Can copies. Thanks for making the Wavian can available. Now if you could just source them in the USA!
