The SCOUT Bottle Carrier


The SCOUT was designed to be a minimalist version of the MCC for those that prefer bottle kits to canteens.  The rubber-lined main pocket is generously sized to accommodate a variety of vessels, including nesting cups, pots and lids as well as stove systems like the Jet Boil.  An adjustable, split top Y strap conforms to a wide variety of bottle designs and is secured with a side release buckle.  The generous front pocket is secured with a full coverage flap and can house some 5’X7’ tarps, small survival kits or whatever you choose to fit inside.  The SCOUT is supplied with a fully adjustable shoulder strap system that enables vertical, horizontal or belt carry.  Integrated MOLLE straps make it easy to mount the SCOUT to packs or other carry systems.

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 SCOUT 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.

    Absolutely on point. I love everything about it. Just enough extra storage capacity, accommodates many different bottle and shape sizes. Worth every penny.

    Excellent product - far more than a simple bottle carrier while still being compact for its function. Excellent materials, excellent workmanship, and excellent service. A great American product from a great American small business!

    Tough and well designed

    Posted by Kyle C on Mar 29th 2022

    I've had it for around 7 months. Didn't get too many trips out yet given the time of year and the usual weather here. But, the times I did get out with it has been great. I've used it primarily for a nalgene+lunch/quick cook kit all in one. It fits the pot, pot lid, mug/pot, bottle of water, firebox nano kit, fire starter, knife, and folding saw pouch all attached to it. And the carrier attaches very securely in a few different ways and orientations. It makes it ideal for a quick and easy setup for a hot lunch/hot drink on a cold day. It might have been nice to have an additional pocket on it so I could fit my alcohol stove too or perhaps part of a small water filtration kit, but those just go in different accessory pockets/pouches on my opposite hip belt/pack. The design has been flexible in how it attaches/can be carried and I've hardly scratched the surface on the ways it could be used. I'd say that it is so easy to find a number of uses for this kit, Its hard to go wrong. (I bring this regardless of other cook kit items I am bringing, just very convenient for an on the go option[no pack diving required]). I haven't had it for too long, but so far the materials and build quality have held up without any sign of degradation/wear. I'm very satisfied with my purchase.

    An excellent product - highly recommended

    Posted by Roger H. on Dec 24th 2021

    It took three months from the time I ordered the Scout until it arrived: and was absolutely worth the wait! Materials, workmanship and design were all top-notch. I regularly use the bottle carrier with a Yeti 36 ounce Rambler, and together they have become the only kit I need for day hikes. The pocket at the front is the perfect size for a small snack. My wife is not at all interested in outdoor gear, but she loves the Scout and now I need to get her one too.

    Holds a large Klean Kanteen, front pouch fits just enough trail mix with a little room to spare. I was impressed with the quality as soon I held it. The customers service was just as great. CLS is as near to bespoke as you can get.

    This is my second time buying one of these. The care that is taken by the great people working in this facilty is second to none. My Scout Bottle Carrier is of heirloom quality. Hopefully my kids and grand-kids will enjoy them as much as I have.

    Absolutely amazing

    Posted by Matt on Jul 4th 2021

    Well made, looks absolutely fantastic and unmatched customer service. Mark personally called to apologize for the lead time (waiting was no issue for a custom, built to order product) and to check that my order was correct. Definitely looking at a few other things now!

    I ordered one of these a few months ago in a paring of barn red and coyote brown. Apparently this color combination was ordered so infrequently that Mark gave me a call asking, "Are you sure you want those two colors together?" I marveled that he would do that to ensure my satisfaction but in the end, I gave him the "go-ahead". When it came, I marveled that it was even more beautiful than I had imagined! Thanks, Mark . . . absolutely spectacular!

    Amazing quality and versatility

    Posted by DJ Drocic on Nov 3rd 2019

    Scout bottle carrier was a part of my kit that I was looking for well over 2 years. What an amazing quality and versatility, it offers a lot of attachments and carrying options. I use it combined with my backpack for longer visits in the forest or alone for just a day hike.

    The BEST bottle carrier that I own! I received mine before it rolled out and the upgrades made to it are great, the handle strap gives a great grip when drinking the shoulder strap is comfortable and the front pocket carries an awesome amount of gear. I use it for short hikes and when teaching my Krav Maga class, I would not trade it for anything and it will be part of my go to gear for years to come. Lastly buy one you will not be disappointed

    Awesome as usual

    Posted by Nate F. on Jul 22nd 2019

    Just received my Scout Carriers today along with a few more items. The quality is awesome as it always is from Centerline. This holds my 64 oz Klean Kanteen perfectly and will hold a 40 oz Klean Kanteen some what loosely around the sides but is still secure in the pouch. I have their G-2 Gear Roll and their Mother Canteen carrier and they are just as high quality as this. I received two emails from them (two more than I would expect from a company) updating me on the status of my order. I didn't ask for the updates but they went out of their way to send them. Told me they would probably have my large order complete by Friday and I received them on the next Monday. The next time Centerline comes out with a new item that tickles my fancy, I will surely purchase it (please make a backpack).
