[EDIT: BTW, I just looked at the LCI website (which by the way makes it just about impossible to find the MWCs), and to me, the cans on their website look just like they did 4 years ago when I bought mine from them].

Re: Best water jugs?

BroncoHauler: thanks for the links. Just order one for us. The 10L should fit nicely into a perfect niche in our SMB and the size is perfect for the two of us. Thanks again.

Bringing this thread back for no other reason to state that Scepter appears to have discontinued both blue and black as color options for their MWCs. There are a few sites that still have some available, so if you want them, get them now.

Dang - I tried to order another Blue 10 liter MWC but all the normal suppliers appear to be out of stock. There are a few eBay sellers ransoming the remaining units for $70-$80+ but it's just not worth that much to me.

And since LCI's website suggests emailing Specter to request another run of the Blue/Black colors I sent a request to Specter Military in Canada. The reply was boilerplate 'that color has been discontinued.'

I agree that 10L MWC is perfectly sized to fit between the SMB seats.

Sorry about that. I was shopping last week and I think Lexington Container had two 5 gallon ones left, but their price was kind of high ($46).

I ended up ordering two (the last two) 5 gallon blue MWCs, and two 2.5 gallon blue MWCs from DS Tactical in Victoria BC. I think they still have more of the 2.5 gallon blues, and maybe some black ones as well.
