The Mother Canteen Carrier, or MCC, was designed as a platform for building the perfect minimalist survival kit.  The rubber lined main pocket of the MCC is designed to carry a wide variety of canteens, bottles and their associated cups and accessories.  The internal slot pocket will accommodate the canteen cup lids supplied with systems such as the Heavy Cover Canteen set.  Items placed in the main compartment are secured with an adjustable, open-top Y strap.  The covered front pocket is large enough to hold small shelters, emergency blankets and compact stoves.  Two covered side pockets are secured with side release buckles and can accommodate IFAC systems, flares, fire starting kits and much more.  Integrated loops on the sides and bottom of the MCC allow for the attachment of accessories.  The MCC can be carried using the supplied adjustable QD strap or integrated MOLLE straps on the back of the main pouch.  

NOTE - If you are 6'2" or taller, weigh 250 lbs or greater and/or are going to use the shoulder strap while wearing multiple layers of clothing, we also offer an "XL" size Shoulder Strap.  This option is available at check out, but feel free to contact me directly if you have questions.


*  See our video links near the bottom of this page for more info on the MCC plus additional ideas on how you can use yours.


**  Please see the Home Page, the Shipping Tab, and the "Terms of Service" for info on lead times, shipping, etc...

****  All of our materials have been specifically chosen for longevity, durability and extreme quality. Additionally, I apply a rule of three: It must be either Mil-Spec, Made in the USA or Berry Compliant. As such, we use genuine Cordura Brand 500dn nylon; Velcro brand hook and loop; ITW Nexus plastics, DOT Fasteners and Mil-Spec webbing, binding tape and threads. All of these materials are designed to resist abrasion, wear and rot in order to provide a lifetime of service. Hand-Crafted, High-Quality, Heirloom gear as unique as your fingerprint. Period.

    Mother Canteen Carrier

    Posted by Rick Wheeler on Sep 8th 2022

    This thing is one of the most versatile pieces of kit I've seen in a while. Sling it over your shoulder, connect to your battle/Adventure belt or your pack (or all 3 on the same excursion). This thing will make whatever you're doing more enjoyable. I can't say enough about the personal customer service by Mark Laine the founder.

    Epic quality.

    Posted by SFC Just Link Jones on Jul 9th 2022

    Absolutely solid build, definitely worth the wait. I ordered 2, one for cooking and 1 for bail out water, 2+ years of heavy use and barely any fading/scuffing. Cannot wait until a newer version comes out, looking forward to it, so are my guys.

    My first field test of Mother Canteen Carrier

    Posted by Brent Cooper on Jul 25th 2021

    I just took my newly purchased Mother canteen carrier on a 9 day Boundary waters canoe trip. It carried my canteen and cup, Polar Pure, fire steel, striker, cordage, bug dope, mosquito net, and Leatherman wave. Out of all the gear I took, the Mother was my favorite piece of kit. The material is tough, but soft to the touch. The quality is outstanding and the stitching is top notch. I wore it on my belt, which kept my most used items secure and available, even it the canoe. I highly recommend it. Now looking at the G2 to expand the capacity for more shelter and bushcraft items. Thanks for the great product!

    I am very satisfied with this product. It is very high quality, great material, great craftsmanship, and just great in general from what I can tell. It is worth the money, and worth the wait for it.

    Extreme attention to detail and excellent product

    Posted by Erwin Narvaez on Jul 2nd 2021

    I have ordered 2 canteen carriers and both were produced to my specifications. Webbing, camo type and both were exactly what I ordered. Customer service was very attentive and assured that all specifications were understood and implemented. The functionality was all fullfiled and the product handled exactly as advertised. I was also surprised to find out that the product had additional features I was not fully aware of like additional space to accommodate items like my spoon and fuel can cooking head. Hands down one of the best additions to my hiking / camping kit. Thank you centerline for this very well thought out product. Best regards, Erwin

    Pretty boss

    Posted by Joseph Young on Jun 29th 2021

    I don't normally review the gear that I buy, but I have to say the Mother canteen carrier is pretty boss. Does everything that I need it to do and the quality is probably the best that i've seen on any product within several years. Also the same can be said about customer service with Center Line Systems, I don't have enough good things to say. I'm very happy with the 2 Mother canteen carriers that I bought, and I have no regrets.
