Unusual canteen (water bottle in English)

Can anyone here tell me more about this canteen

Had this thing for quite a while after picking it up for a couple of quid in a UK surplus store.

Never seen once since and I am wondering what it designed for specifically. Survival kit? AFV use? To be carried in a vest.

I find its shape is useful and economical. Anyone know where I might get another one, or the missing the cap retainer?

(Sorry, No NSN stamped on it)

It's not issue, but a commercial reusable ice pack, IIRC. it does make a nice canteen in a ruck or vehicle.

Try these guys for the strap, genuine G.I. Surplus from Ft. Indiantown Gap.
