The Roman Legion Canteen (Laguncula) was standard issue for Roman Legionnaires and Centurions during the Gallic War. A Roman soldier was very healthy! The men marched for 5-6 hours a day, covering about 18 miles before stopping to make camp for the night. Each man carried his weapons, helmet, shield, and essential survival supplies (including his canteen), slung over his shoulder on a wooden pole called a "furca"; which comes from a latin word meaning a "fork stick". The Romans know well what makes a good army a GREAT army is food in its belly and plenty of fluids to keep the soldiers hydrated.
