    Does anyone here own the ITS Tactical Bottle Holder? Thinking of grabbing one for the side of my Lunada, would love to hear some feedback on it first though!

    What ^ said. I have been looking for a good water bottle holder for the GR1.

    I use one on occasion. Although they show it can be used with small and large bottles alike, I find that it is more secure with medium and large bottles, less secure with smaller ones like 0.5L narrow mouth bottles. With narrow bottles I double up the bungee loop.

    After having used one for a couple of months, I'd buy it again.

    I went ahead and got one. Haven't put it through the paces yet though.

    Totally agree. Now that I've used it a few times, it definitely works better with smaller bottles. I was using a 5.11 bottle holder; the ITS bottle holder certainly looks smaller, but I don't think it weighs much less than the 5.11 holder. I like that it looks less bulky on the side of my Lunada. I'd probably buy it again too.

    When I went down to the Rush 12 after finding the 24 a little too bulky for my school bag I realized I had no way of carrying my water with me since the 24 has, what I like to call the "Concealed Water Carry" pouches whereas the 12 doesn't. I picked up a condor water bottle carrier, similar to the 5.11 one, and found it was WAY to bulky for my taste. So I picked up the ITS carrier and one of the bottles available from them (the white uncle sam one) and I fell in love with both the bottle and the carrier. I think no matter what a water bottle carrier is going to be somewhat bulky on the side of a bag, but the adjustability of the ITS one is what sold me.
    I highly recommend it over some of the others.

    I've actually seen someone use it to secure a tripod to their GORUCK GR1. An interesting alternative use.

    That's a cool alternate use! I've used mine to carry my JetBoil stove, which is nice because the stove wouldn't fit in the 5.11 bottle holder I was using.
