Wavian Fuel Can Testimonial

Wavian Fuel Can Testimonial

It’s not a method we usually recommend to test the strength of one of our Jerry Can’s, but Bruce A. Hansen, a customer who purchased a Wavian Jerry Can from Swiss Link, was more than happy with his purchase when things went dramatically wrong.

(scroll to the bottom for a fire testing video)

He got in touch to let us know that while traveling through the North Maine woods the roof cargo on his vehicle slipped and the load hit the highway at 60mph! Amazingly, his NATO Steel Jerry Can did not leak. Now that's one heck of a testimony to the strength of our fuel cans.

He was so pleased that he went on to say…

Do you want a reference?…. I’ll give the Wavian 20 Litre a lifetime recommendation without any reservations. After I reconfigure my roof rack’s bindings, I plan to replace the can with an identical one from your company. Thanks for making a product I can always rely on.

And while all his other expedition gear was badly damaged, the 5 Gallon Wavain NATO Jerry Can despite being severely dented didn’t leak a drop.
