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 our partners Swiss Link in the United States was more than happy with his purchase when things went dramatically wrong.
He got in touch to let us know that while travelling through the North Maine woods the roof cargo on his vehicle slipped and the load hit the highway at 60mph!!
He was so pleased 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.
All our Wavian Jerry / Petrol Cans are made to the highest specifications using superior strength steel for strength and durability.
