    I know there have been several threads on how to carry water, however we (2up) are looking to carry a Rtic 1 gallon bottle, looking for any ideas for maybe mounting to a pannier.

    a touratech double bottle holder might work.
    if you use 2 smaller bottles you can get a bottle holder and mount it almost anywhere you have room.

    2up backing is tough, i've found its more of a compromise of what item mounts or stores how you need it to and not so much the specific item you actually want to use.


    *edit*
    from a thread 2 stories down..

    check out QUICK FIST to see if you like any options there. if you dont know of them yet, they look a bit flimsey on account of the rubber,,, but ive been using them more than 15 yrs now and they are real dang tough.

    there are also small 5 lb propane tanks mounitng options if you want a more "ridgid" mounting solution.

    Look into fire extinguisher mounts. Might find something there.

    It is designed for the Coleman 1 gal jug,but may be adaptable for the RTIC.
    Member here is the one who makes them.
    Check in vendor forum.

    I have been using mine for a couple years,recommended!

    I appreciate the feedback, we considered the Motojug, but we are looking for something ridged to be mounted on an FJR pannier, kind of an odd angle.[​IMG]
