The Gen 2 Mother Canteen Carrier, a.k.a. the Ma Deuce or just simply the M2 was developed at the request of those who loved the MOTHER canteen carrier, but wanted something with more capacity. As they say, better to have and not need than need and not have.
The main compartment on the M2 can hold a wide variety of canteen systems such as: standard US G.I. / Heavy Cover canteen, the British military Crusader or the newer, more rectangular Titanium Canteen Cook set now available from a number of companies such as Black Scout Survival. In addition to the ability to hold larger mess kits, the main compartment is large enough to hold extra items such as food, supplemental cooking accessories, or other appropriately sized items. This pocket is lined with a rugged, rubberized coating for increased durability and ease of cleaning. An internal slot pocket is sized to hold a Purcell Trench 8”X5” grill and the increased size of the external pockets allow you to carry items such as a 5’X7” tarp, water purification systems and much more. Like the MOTHER, the M2 can be carried with the supplied shoulder strap or attached to other gear using the integrated MOLLE straps.
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.

To say that this Grandaddy of Canteen Carriers (GCC) is the perfect sidekick is an understatement. I carry all the things I need for time in the woods in this including a stove to cook on. I’ve got two Maxpedition Can pouches underneath the canteen which contain a headlamp and extra batteries and and an alcohol stove in the other and in all the other pockets I have things for shelter, fire, food procurement, the container, water filtration, the list goes on and on, you can easily carry your daily EDC in this with you or head out for a day of enjoying time on the river and keep your gear minimalistic. This GCC is the perfect companion for me. Thanks Mark and the whole crew, you guys are the absolute best!
