If you're looking for them they are called a "specter" water can.

Made in Canada I believe and used by them and the US military. They do plastic fuel cans too which look very similar. The military water and fuel cans are widely available as army surplus overseas or you can buy them new from the manufacturer - http://mil.sceptermilitary.com/
