    Hey fellow bushcrafters!
    I posted a while back I was building a kit based around a molle water bottle holder.
    Well... I've started to give it some dirt time tho we don't go miles from home.
    I plan on building this to be an extension of the condor psk pouch I have built in the past, so for a bit things will change from time to time. 15220086164711509724529.jpg
    I removed the original strap and made me one from 550 cord and some steel Clevis buckles.
    I'm using a 32oz Nalgene and a stainless nesting cup. 15220088426501092166850.jpg
    That's pretty much the base of the kit. Everything will revolve around this. I had an idea I wanted to try with a roll of bank line.. 1522009041134497035619.jpg
    Fit perfect! There went my cordage and saved internal space! I have fell in love with mule tape sence I tried it on my knife psk.. Awesome stuff.. I put 12 feet on this kit attached to the outside with a glove holder that can be used for other things as well.. 15220092893521343832209.jpg
    Also found this out.. scho-ka-kola tins.. perfect... @Primordial
    1522009520301462293085.jpg
    I haven't added a lot of needed things to it yet.. but this is what I have so far..
    1522009722391647290981.jpg
    It's not much, but I know what it needs I just have to round it up :) I'll keep y'all posted on the contents as I add. Here's to another kit build! Thought I'd share!

    This kit is not an overnight kit.. just for the day. It will have the items needed to get ya through a night if needed when complete! Just wanted to clarify.. Thanks!

    Outstanding stuff @Bushcraft-kelso ! I'm a bottle bag kit junkie! There's just so much you can do with one. Like you, I set them up as day hike kits but with a few things to help me get by if I had to spend an unexpected night outdoors. I must say I admire your restraint...my kits seem to fall victim to sprawl!:oops: I usually have a small pouch MOLLEd onto each side to get a little bit more stuff in there.:)

    I can think of a couple of discussions of similar kits- here is one,and here's one more. I know there's more than I can't find right now.

    Nice! I like keeping a knife or multi tool on the outside of the bag for quick access.

    @tashunka witko that's the most maxed-out bottle bag kit I've ever seen! I'd love to see a post about the contents.

    Nice kit. I did one similar. What I did for my strap is use a length of standard webstrap and weaved paracord over it with the strap taking the place of the inner lines. That gives me a nice shoulder pad that can be used as cordage while maintaining a strap for carrying.

    Hey all I added 2 new pouches to my molle water bottle holder.. it's probably best I don't add anything else.. this increased size by 4-5x if you only count the small pouch on the front.. IMG_20180408_143347.jpg
    I added a condor gadget pouch and a dump pouch. Gave me ample room for basically what ever I wanna carry on a quick trip out. I'll keep y'all posted as things are added!

    I like it @Bushcraft-kelso ! I've been mulling over the dump pouch as well. There are a few that get great reviews at Amazon. It's something I'd rarely use but it would be a godsend when I did need it. Well, actually it might be one of those things you don't realize is so useful til you try it! I'm eager to see how the pack rides now and how you like it once you've used it a bit.

    Finally got around to this.

    Kit is set up for where I wander. Chances are if I have to spend the night it'll only be the one. I also have a lanyard with a whistle and compass. Big knife on the hip.

    Bush braws! I added an elastic string, from a molle pouch to the molle on the front. 1529972140159123756237.jpg added my mini sit pad. Added 0 weight. I also added the CRKT Persevere to the kit, only the wedges, pin, and the blade I have a hank of 550 already and it fits in a small pouch already on the kit. 1529973050547723135774.jpg I also traded my stainless nesting cup for an aluminum one. I also traded my UST folding stove for this dude
    15299728706561860365360.jpg it's becoming slightly more "refined" I'm trying to add things and take things away that I haven't used. While trying to cut down on the weight of my most used items. Anywho thought I'd give an update!

    Did a mod to a Mora sheath so the knife didn't hang below the bottom of the H2O kit. Don't know why that bothered me but it did.

    New knife position compared to photo in post #19

    Nice kit @Bushcraft-kelso :dblthumb: I made a paracord belt same weave as your strap. Making one that long is a serious lesson in patients. Nice work!
    Cheers Jim
