"Mother" Canteen Carrier


The "Mother" Canteen Carrier, or simply MCC, is more than a canteen carrier, it is the maximum amount of gear in a minimalist platform.  The MCC brings Food, Fire, Water and Shelter all together in one multi-purpose, compact, over the shoulder, MOLLE compatible, indoor or outdoor, made in AMERICA, bad ass unit.  An essential item for minimalist survival, EDC, bug out or vehicle bag, bush-craft, military or just to serve as your window to the woods when stuck in the office!

The amount of gear you can carry in the MCC, even more so if combined with the G1 or G2 gear roll, allows you to be better prepared for most situations... and they are not all Jeremiah Johnson or "Alone" types of survival situations.  How often do we hear about the couple that went for a hike in a National Forest and either became lost or injured and then suffered or died before rescue.  Food, Fire, Water and Shelter...  Well, if those adventures don't appeal to you either, then there is always the option of staying at home and playing video games - but you still need Water, lol!

The interior of the MCC fits a wide variety of containers and their associated cups/lids including, but not limited to: Heavy Cover Titanium Canteen, Nalgene bottles/canteen, Vargo, Yeti, Klean Kanteen, Seychelle, Katadyn, NDuR, standard G.I. issue canteen, Gatorade bottles, etc...you get the picture.  The interior also has a slot for a canteen cup lid or small field stove.  The MCC has two side pouches for IFAC, flashlight, knife/survival tool, cordage, food, water purification tablets/straw, etc...  One center pouch for larger items such as shelter, bivy liner, fire starting kit, signals kit, cell phone, small child, etc...  Bottom tie down points for shelter, clothing, tools, etc. MOLLE loops on front for chemlites, cordage, snap links, tie down points, etc...  MOLLE compatible backside for attachment to ruck or can be worn over a belt.  Adjustable shoulder straps with removable side release buckles.


The MCC is hand-crafted in the U.S.A from 500 DN Cordura, MilSpec webbing, velcro, plastics and DOT Fastener Snaps.


* We also offer an XL size shoulder strap 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.  This option is available at check out, but feel free to contact me directly if you have questions.

Great Kit!

I come from a military background and therefore have high expectations and put my gear through a lot. I bought this kit to supplement to my normal load out.

What a great piece! Not only is the material tough as nails, but the options for adapting this piece to different gear sets. I recently brought this on a weekend trip to my camp in Maine in which I was doing a lot of tree takedown. I simply strapped this to my belt which was great because I was able to move freely without the hindrance you’d have with say a pack. On top of that i was able to keep all the tools for the saw, lunch, SOL shelter tarp, knife, fire kit, and tourniquet in the carrier. And I could have got much more in there. Again all on my belt. Never have i been able to bring so much gear in one system that is this compact.

If you are looking for a solid piece of gear, to carry the essentials and stay compact and light then this is THE system you need.

The Mother and G2

Absolutely beautiful. Excellent craftsmanship along with excellent design.
Bought it as a gift for a relative heading overseas. I'm sure it will be tested and will serve him well. Semper Fi !
