More than a canteen carrier, the "Mother" or simply MCC, is the maximum amount of gear in a minimalist platform. Food, Fire, Water and Shelter in one compact, over the shoulder unit. The amount of gear you can carry in the MCC, even more so if combined with the G2 gear roll, allows you to be better prepared for most situations... and they are not all Jeremiah Johnson or "Alone" types of survival situations. How often do we hear about the couple that went for a hike in a National Forest and either became lost or injured and then suffered or died before rescue. Food, Fire, Water and Shelter... Well, if those adventures don't appeal to you either, then there is always the option of staying at home and playing video games - but you still need Water, lol!
The interior of the MCC fits a wide variety of containers and their associated cups/lids including, but not limited to: Heavy Cover Titanium Canteen, Nalgene bottles/canteen, Vargo, Yeti, Klean Kanteen, Seychelle, Katadyn, NDuR, standard G.I. issue canteen, Gatorade bottles, etc...you get the picture. The interior also has a slot for a canteen cup lid or small field stove. The MCC has two side pouches for IFAC, flashlight, knife/survival tool, cordage, food, water purification tablets/straw, etc. One center pouch for larger items such as shelter, bivy liner, fire starting kit, signals kit, cell phone, small child, etc. Bottom tie down points for shelter, clothing, tools, etc. MOLLE loops on front for chemlites, cordage, snap links, tie down points, etc. MOLLE compatible backside for attachment to ruck or can be worn over a belt. Adjustable shoulder straps with removable side release buckles.
