Looking for a better way to carry your water bottle? Instructables user hpstoutharrow shows how to make a clever carrying strap using camp cord, ingenuity and some knot-tying skills.
Whether on the trail or on the train, being able to hang your bottle so your hands are free, but still have it within reach is a convenient way to take your water on the go. Store-bought water slings can get pricey, but with material you may already have on hand or a small investment if you don't, you can make a capable carrier yourself.
Hpstoutharrow recommends camp cord, but also mentions that shoelace could also work (almost any cord or twine of a reasonable size and strength should do). Beyond the basic knot tying required, the instructions also include modifications for adding a tethered cork stopper and a full bottle sling.
