    Default Easy out nesting cup

    One of the things that are a pain, especially when it's cold, is getting your nesting cup out of a bottle carrier like the Maxped 10x4. I think once you put some other things on the sides it tightens up the inside. This will work for a canteen cup and the old pouches too.

    Get yourself a thin piece of cloth. A bandana works great for this.



    Before putting your cup in the carrier put it on to of the cloth and wrap the sides up and into the cup.





    Put your bottle or canteen in the cup to hold it all together and put it in the carrier.




    Now when you want your cup you just need to grab the sides of the cloth and pull. Plus you got a cloth for other things.

    Great Idea! The cloth would be good for a pot holder, cleaning rag, etc. Or if it was made of cotton could be used to make char cloth in a pinch. Thanks for the tip Sweeny!

    Good stuff. Been doing this for a while. Also cuts down on the rattling if your bottle and cup are not a tight fit!

    I have a Maxped versipak and have been struggling with the very same issue. That's a great idea. I don't care what Matt says about you, you're okay.

    Haha, I hate when that happens. I personally use bandanna bundles in place of stuff sacks for a couple of the improvements that have been listed, namely extra emergency cloth and the dread rattle factor. The charcloth point is a good one too. I need to get into making charcloth, actually. Hmm.

    Default Thanks!

    This idea may help my USGI canteen cup to come out of its pouch easier! The cup has a flared lip that slides into the pouch easily enough, but grabs all the way out!
    ...and I'll see you soon!

    Nicely done. I usually just shove my hand inside the cup and try to wedge it that way.
