Waterbottle Carrier help.

Postby Death Warrant » Mon Apr 10, 2017 6:05 pm

Hi folks,

I've got a skeleton waterbottle carrier that i'm having trouble getting the bottle to fit in. I understand these can be tight, I have tried soaking it to try and stretch it but no joy.

Looking for any other advise on getting it to fit. The carrier is original and the bottle is a repro, so not sure if that may have something to do with it.

Thanks in advance.

if stretching doesn't do it, you may have to cut and re-stitch the webbing on a join, maybe there's enough material on the fold over of the join to let out.

I just restitched mine. It was very easy to do and has transformed the usual horror of British water bottle extraction.
