Overview of the CTUG Water Bottle Sleeve
Add convenience to your hike without sacrificing valuable real estate on you pack. The CTUG Water Bottle Sleeve lets you keep your water within reach! Great for hydrating on the go, you can cover your miles without the frequent hassle to reach back or stop and remove your pack to access your water. Using an easy attachment system, this sleeve sits securely and seamlessly on virtually any pack’s straps.
Lead time on Water Bottle Sleeves is 1-3 days.
Easily attach the Water Bottle Sleeve to any of your packs - our system is able to attach to just about every backpacking pack.
Common strap styles include those with daisy chain and those with a gear loop. More instructions on how to attach to these can be found below in photos and a video.
Tie a shoe or take a stretch without your water bottle tumbling into the dirt. The cinch top closure keeps your bottle in place.
You can also use a 1 liter bottle in a 0.7 Liter Sleeve an secure it by stretching the shock cord over top of the bottle.
Built to Last
We believe gear should last for thousands of miles. We design our gear with materials that will stand the test of time.
The back panel is Xpac VX07, a durable material that won't wear out. We use nylon webbing along with durable Duraflex S clips to hold the bottle on the pack. Finally we use nylon pocket mesh that surrounds the bottle.
The CTUG Water Bottle Sleeve attaches to virtually any backpack’s shoulder strap. With our easy attachment system, you can be sure your shoulder strap accessory will sit securely on your pack. Depending on your backpack’s straps, our shoulder strap accessories can be attached in one of two ways:
Packs with daisy chain webbing running the length of pack’s straps will use both clips.
To attach to a strap’s daisy chain loops, open the S clips and attach to desired loops. Close clips to lock in place. Slide the extra webbing through the slider to create a tight fit.
Packs without daisy chain will use the webbing on the bottom of the strap that holds the ladder lock in place and the horizontal upper gear loop near the top of the strap.
To attach to a pack with a gear loop, open the bottom S clip and attach to the webbing loop at the bottom of the strap. Close the clip to lock it in place.
Unthread the upper webbing from the Sleeve and set aside the clip. Now thread that webbing down through the upper gear loop on the pack, then back through slider on the Sleeve. Cinch tight for the perfect fit.
How to Open/Close S Clips
Opening and closing our clips can be challenging at first. The key is where you put the force of your fingers. Hold the clip firm in one hand and follow the force vectors in the diagrams.
See the video below for more details about attaching a Water Bottle Sleeve to your pack. Sleeve works best with tall/skinny bottle like the Smart Water bottle.
