Cheap(er) Water Jugs

Jax Mercantile just got a massive military surplus shipment with 20L water jugs. These are almost identical to the Scepter jugs. They are selling for $20. Jax is in Northern Colorado but you can order them from the website. Judging by what I saw in store they are all in pretty good shape.

They also have cheap(er) ammo cans, but the condition is hit or miss.

You can also buy brand new ones for $24. It looks like a Scepter clone.

To add to this, the code "CSU1718" works on the Jax website. $10 off $50.

I bought a couple of these last year, and they have been great. Only 6 big trips on them, and a handful of overnight trips...not even a scratch.

I would buy the LCI stuff again without hesitation. Especially if they still offer free shipping over $50

Just realized that Jacks website isn't stuck in 1998 anymore. This is great news, maybe Partner is next!

The water jugs are French. Unclear if the scepter lids will fit. But for a third of the price, worth the chance.
