Wavian Associates was formed in 1996 by the founder Barry Webster and has grown to be one of the largest suppliers of Jerrycans and associated products in the UK headquartered in East Anglia and distribute goods worldwide.

Authentic and original, this metal jerry can is manufactured by Wavian/Valpro to the highest military specs. This metal canister is far superior to cheap plastic gas jugs and tanks. At a hefty weight of 9.46 lbs, this can is as sturdy as you can get. The large 20L cans hold 5.28 gallons of liquid. Fully coated inside and outside. These empty canisters have an internal breather pipe for splash-proof pouring. The regular nozzles will fit this can as well.


Wavian jerry cans are the current NATO spec cans used throughout NATO member nations in Europe. The NATO cans shape is similar to, but very slightly thinner, than the USGI MFC. The NATO cans will fit all military style jerry can holders.

This can is constructed of 2 sides welded together in the middle, the welded seam is leakproof unlike the early U.S. steel jerry cans with rolled seams. The design of this can has remained essentially unchanged since before WWII.

The main difference between these steel cans and current issue USGI plastic cans, besides the material, is the pour spout. The NATO cans have a trapezoidal shaped locking cam cap and pour spout design. This design is very robust and leakproof, assuming the gasket is in good shape. The gasket for the NATO locking cap and the pour spout are the same.
