Our "Scout" Bottle Carrier is a streamlined version of our "Mother" Canteen Carrier and designed for those who prefer bottles over canteens. The Scout is designed as a minimalist, over the shoulder, drink on the go carrier that accommodates pretty much every bottle out there and associated nesting cups. The Scout can be carried vertically, horizontally, on a belt, waist pad, attached to other gear, or in your hand while jogging/hiking. An essential item for day to day activities, hiking, mountain biking, camping, 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 Scout gives you numerous carrying configurations; one large outer storage pocket and the ability to drink on the move. You can see from the pictures that the Scout fits most bottle types, ranging from a standard Nalgene up to a 64 oz. Growler! The Scout can also fit a Jet Boil system, though for easier in/out access, I recommend removing the heat sleeve first, which you can store inside the pocket or at the bottom of the main compartment.
The shoulder strap can be attached so the Scout can be carried in a vertical configuration or, move the Quick Attach Surface Mounts to the same side, and now the Scout can be carried in a horizontal configuration. Numerous vertical and horizontal straps serve as attachment points for additional gear or can be used to secure your Scout to a rucksack, etc... The rear MOLLE loop allows the Scout to be mounted to other MOLLE compatible surfaces, worn on a belt or the waistband of a rucksack, or act as an over the back of the hand strap while hiking, jogging, etc...
The bottle/container security strap can "split" to run along each shoulder on "neck" style bottles. Or simply run the security strap as one piece of webbing through the carrying handle portion of any sports style bottle cap. The large center pocket can easily fit the Bush Craft Outfitters 5 x 7" MEST Tarp or other types of daily grind items! Many thanks to IA WOODSMAN for letting us use his YouTube video review! I'll have a video coming soon as well.
The "Scout" is hand-crafted in the U.S.A. from 500 DN Cordura, MilSpec webbing, velcro, plastics and DOT Fastener Snaps.
