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.

****  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.

    Don’t go into the wilderness without it.

    What can I say, it’s the best canteen holder I’ve ever encountered and extremely well built. This mother canteen holder will definitely out live me and you’ll be able to pass this on to your friends or family members. Mark is a great guy and is definitely there for you should you have any questions or requests you have, I have two of these now and love them, plus I get plenty of use out of both of them. Thank you Mark.

    Mother Canteen Carrier

    This canteen carrier is the best I've ever had, bar none. It can adjust to my preferred mtethod of carry to match the needs of the moment, and the generous pockets allow me to carry along a small survival kit and a few energy bars. I was even able to order an extra long strap to match my height.

    Mother canteen carrier

    Posted by Ted on Apr 7th 2021

    Nothing beats this canteen carrier. It’s so much more than just a carrier for your canteen. You can pack fire starter kits and foldable stoves and water purification tablets and so forth. This is a great thing to have in your car with your cateen for emergencies and it’s absolutely awesome to take on hiking, camping, fishing, and hunting trips. The owner of this company would talk to me on the phone himself to make sure I received this and was satisfied and I’ve never experienced that kind of customer service from any other company. I most definitely recommend this product and Centerline Systems to everybody who is looking for great survival gear.

    Oh Mother!

    Posted by Dionna McGrail on Mar 16th 2021

    The "mother" carrier is just about perfect. Mine holds food, water treatment (I carry my water separate in a bottle), T6 Zero emergency shelter and SOS signal, Fire, Canteen cups for cooking and drinking, duct tape, my bushcraft knife, space blankets, cordage, and so much more. The mother is very versatile and can be used in so many different ways. It is very sturdy and strong, and will last a lifetime I think. Centerline systems is a great company with outstanding customer service. I will definitely be a return customer.

    Just the Best Money Can Buy

    Posted by Marco Brunelleschi on Jan 3rd 2021

    I've been hiking and camping around with the mother canteen kit for several months now and I have to say that it just fulfills all my expectations. The materials and build are top notch, that much isn't too surprising but what really stood out was how well thought out all the features are. The front pouch fits my fire kit and small stove perfectly and the two side pouches carry my utensils and water filter without overstuffing it. I don't try to over encumber it but it does still carry what I need, and coupling that with a small day pack it just makes for a superb piece of equipment. I 100% recommend!

    MCC and G2

    Posted by Kev on Sep 8th 2020

    Delighted with my purchase; really neat bit of kit. Does exactly as advertised! Communication was excellent throughout and Mark was really helpful. Quality of the material and workmanship is excellent, really durable and versatile product. The MCC is awesome; an odd mixture of really small, but at the same time quite big in terms of what you can stash inside! The G2 roll is a really cool little addition and can fit a lot of useful stuff and be slung onto any pack. Haven't left home without it so far. Both items nicely complement a range of other gear too, having been strapped to both my belt kit and my main pack. Really happy with it, keep up the good work!

    Posted by John Wu on Sep 2nd 2020

    Hi I'm John from Singapore! Finally received my items I get 3 items at the same time the mother canteen carrier, Padded strap wrap and the G-2 gear roll all come in handy when attached together especially the padded strap wrap is feel comfortable when attaching the G-2 gear roll to the mother canteen carrier cause you'll have more loads! I've always wanted these for quite sometime really love the both MCC and G-2 gear roll design no regrets paying for such good quality products will be back to shop again :)
