Bushcraft "Murse"
« on: July 29, 2012, 08:06:59 AM »
I've been a little under the weather this weekend & there was nothing good on TV ... so I grabbed my box-o-paracord & decided to do something useful.

Since we're coming up on the cooler hiking season, when I do some of my longer outings; I've been looking for a way to carry some additional water in, that would be accessible while walking (I have a 2Q  mounted to the back of my vest).

Bored, tired & high on asprin & cough syrup ..... the "Bushcraft Murse" was born ....  ;D

Started with some good 'ol cobra weave;



Added some hardward from a purse that the wifey was tossing out ....



Added a surplus 2Q canteen cover & grenade pouch;







Viola .... auxilary water carrier ... a.k.a. the "Murse" (male-purse  :-[ )

Hopefully I'll still be as happy with it when all the meds wear off.

Looks good buddy. I like the color combination that you used.

I like it.  That's nice paracord work and a good idea overall.  Well done.

That looks way better than my flue-inspired purse-thing. :)

Really nice cobra weave, not bad for someone high on aspirin and cough syrup  :)
Upon this a question arises: whether it be better to be loved than feared or feared than loved? One should wish to be both, but, because it is difficult to unite them in one person, it is much safer to be feared than loved.

Very nice!
I'll be a story in your head, but that's OK we're all stories in the end.  Just make it a good one!
