Picture of Paracord Water Jug Harness.
In 2012 I had an outdoor job for most of my summer break and one of the things we had to bring to work was a some sort of water container. I didn't own one at the time but I've seen people just tie some paracord around the neck of the bottle and call it good. I of course wanted something just a little more elaborate. With two shoe strings and a weaving technique I learned in Boy Scouts, I pulled it off! Here's one of the better ways of making a water jug harness from paracord...

Step 1: Materials.

Picture of Materials.
The list of materials is as follows for making the harness:

- Two 80 in. lengths of paracord, either shoe laces or plain paracord. (I used two shoe laces)
- Some sort of plastic bottle that tickles your fancy. (Water jug, Gatorade, etc...)
- A small carabiner.
- A lighter or box of matches.

I attempted another one I just can not do that knot but I still had fun and I don't think it looks that bad I posted a picture of the back of the first one that I did lol

I messed up on the beginning knot but I decided to keep going cuz I was having a good time this is what I ended up with it does not look anything like yours but I still like it

I made this with a slight variation instead of using the 4 way braid I used the cobra knot as I found it easier. Thank you for the Idea.

Went well, thanks for the effort! Either I didn't braid tight enough, or the bottle is slightly wider, but I didn't have enough at completion so I had to back some off to compensate.

Fill the bottle with water before melting the ends, you won't have any chance of melting the bottle's plastic.

Sage advice right there. I actually tried that sort of thing with boiling water in a paper cup. The water boiled without even burning the cup.

I like it - going to do this with a more permanent bottle. Good work!

Yours is sexy. His is easier. And it is not just some paracord tied around the neck of a bottle.
