    Default ARP water bottle

    The latest addition to my home front water bottle collection a ARP water bottle all I need now is the carrier that go's with it, its very similar to the carrier water bottle other services only made out of thinner more flimsy webbing, the carrying sling is 1 and a half inches wide and the carrier its self has 3 quarter inch bands. The bottle was used as is no felt cover and I am assuming the RS stamped in the bottom of the bottle is the manufacturer.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thumbs up Re: ARP water bottle

    No problem.Its quite a coarse weave on the webbing, not as fine as say on 37p webbing.The shoulder strap is one piece that goes all the way arond the bottle with two thinner strips sewn to that.

    Is your bottle made by MW&S or MMS? I only ask because I have seen the latter maker on several of these bottles.
