Water Bottle Slings - Make Your Own

If you are travelling light and want to make sure you have your water bottle with you, why not just take it out in a bottle holder? There are plenty of options you can buy ready made but it is a nice weekend project to make one yourself using materials you likely have to hand already.
If you are going on a longer hike, it is easy to modify these bags so they can fix to your rucksack with a carrier strap. Perhaps you are cycling and don't have a bottle cage suitable? Sling a bottle bag over your shoulder and head off!
Check out these free guides to help you make your own.

2. Paracord bottle wrap

In this tutorial video, you can find out how to make a mesh-like paracord water bottle wrap using half hitches. You can of course choose to use any other thicker string or thinner rope using the same technique. What off-cuts do you have lying around?
