I've also seen a pouch without any hook at all, but a canteen inside which has a snap hook, and the shape is sort of oval with a flat bottom.
I have an M71 pouch with a canteen on the way that might be that type, but I've only seen it on a photo showing the cap and a bit of the hook poking out, so I'm not sure. Will take some pics when it's here.
I think these might have been used in M71 pouches early on, as many seem to come in that combination.
Also, these snap hooked pouches, were they used on their British style webbing too? M54 I think it was called?
